Kindness Ranch

Kindness Ranch is a 1000 acre ranch nestled among the rolling hills of Hartville, Wyoming and is the only sanctuary in the US that takes in all kinds of research animals including dogs, cats, horses, pigs and sheep. Since it was founded in 2006, Kindness Ranch has provided sanctuary to over 250 animals.

The mission of the Kindness Ranch is to provide a sanctuary and place of rehabilitation for animals who have previously been used in laboratory research. Working to rehabilitate dogs and cats in a home-like environment. Cats and dogs at The Kindness Ranch live together with their human caretakers in spacious yurts specially designed to meet their needs. They receive round-the-clock care to help them adjust to their new lives.

The Kindness Ranch also provides an adoption program for all the animals that can be rehabilitated. Most of the animals that come to Kindness Ranch go on to their fur-ever homes, leading happy and fulfilling lives as a family pet. Those who are too debilitated, old or ill to be placed in a loving home can remain on the ranch to live out their days, surrounded by caretakers and volunteers who put the animals’ well-being first.

In many cases when research dogs come to Kindness Ranch, they have never played with another dog or toys, experienced the outdoors, touched grass, been on a walk and they are not potty trained. The rehab program at Kindness Ranch assists these amazing animals through this process, helping them work towards their fur-ever homes.

The Kindness Ranch is a nonprofit tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
