Animal Sanctuary

The Ranch Hands Rescue farm animal sanctuary provides rehabilitation and a safe haven for horses and livestock suffering from the worst cases of abuse and neglect. Rescued farm animals are given love and purpose in a peaceful, happy environment and are integrated into our Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling program to support people recovering from trauma.

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.
