stampede

Kindness Ranch currently provides sanctuary to 14 horses that are permanent residents. 

Our current horses are not candidates for adoption. 

Ava

Sophia sm

Ava was one of the former research mares that we saved from a slaughter truck located in Missouri in August 2015. These mares had been taken to an auction in Missouri and then purchased by a kill buyer. We learned about the need for the urgent rescue late at night and began to take immediate action. Gratefully, we were able to save all six. 

Each of the mares are between 12 to 20 years of age and are special needs horses and will require lifelong medical attention. They arrived in poor condition and with cancerous tumors at various stages. 

They now have their forever freedom and will spend their lives grazing and plenty of space to roam.
