Ranch Hands Rescue and Bob's House of Hope

Our Mission

Ranch Hands Rescue is a human and animal sanctuary founded on hope and healing for the long term recovery of trauma victims, special needs animals, and male survivors of sex trafficking.

What We Provide



Bob’s House of Hope is the first non-profit safe house in the country for male survivors of commercial sexual exploitation, also known as sex trafficking. We serve young men ages 18+, and are the only residential facility to include Ranch Hands Rescue’s innovative Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling intervention.

Counseling Center

Ranch Hands Rescue specializes in treating more complex trauma cases, such as victims of severe and repetitive abuse and people not making progress in their current treatment programs. We heal critical care animals, then give them a purpose in our counseling program as they participate in Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling (EAAC) alongside specifically selected Licensed Professionals.

How We Help People

Animal Sanctuary

We rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for the worst-of-the-worst farm animal abuse and neglect cases. The animals that will live out their lives at the RHR sanctuary are incorporated into the Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling program, and are given love and purpose. Our animals live out their lives in a peaceful and happy environment.

How We Help Animals

Become a Partner

When you partner with Ranch Hands Rescue you will know that you are dramatically changing the quality of life for a person in need or an abused animal. Here is one of their stories.



AGE: 8-year old goat
AT Ranch Hands Rescue: 5-1/2 years

Daisy was brought to us with a broken neck, malnourished, scared, and distrustful toward humans. After working with veterans suffering from PTSD and children in our counseling program, she learned to not only trust but to cherish human touch again. Daisy has become an important perspective change, for many individuals in our programs, as she provides the opportunity for them to serve her needs and witness her own trust and love -in humans be renewed through her living happily in the sanctuary of Ranch Hands Rescue.
