Each year 1000's of animals enter the gates of the Ranch looking for a second chance. Dogs and cats that may not have always been shown kindness in their past, come with hope in their hearts.
We could not continue our life saving work without our volunteers. Volunteers are essential to all we do, from caring for the animals at our main facility, helping at special events, assisting in the office and so much more!
To learn more about our Volunteer program, attend a Volunteer Orientation at the Ranch on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month at 12pm. Take a full tour of the property and learn all about the various volunteer opportunities the Ranch, resale shops and adoption centers have to offer!
Would you like to schedule a group tour? Contact the volunteer coordinator at for more information.
