Ranch Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They are the ones that offer hope and healing through their stories, talents, gifts or availability. You too can be a Ranch Hero, along with the many other supporters and animals at the farm.
Ranch Heroes make it happen! The Ranch is volunteer driven. It takes over 3500 volunteer hours each year to care for the needs of the animals and 50 acre facility. The team-based volunteer culture is a fun, safe place to experience community with each other and giving back to others.

Hours are flexible, seasonally/as needed by the ranch. Must have construction background knowledge, access to power tools. Mechanical skills are also needed for the care of equipment.
Special Event Volunteers
Help with fundraising and large events hosted by the Ranch. These are seasonal and require lots of hands to make it successful. Examples would be: table/chair set up, cleaning, registration, working the merchandise table, giving tours, food manager, etc. It is great to have a list of willing hands to call on during these events.
As a nonprofit, the Ranch relies on $225K annually to support the mission of the Ranch. Grants only cover about 10% so businesses and private donations generate the bulk of the donations. We also take gifts in kind that we can directly use or goods that we can sell. Contact us for more details or donate directly online today!
