Kindness Ranch is the only sanctuary in the US that takes in all kinds of research animals. While new, it is the result of a decade of work, saving, and planning.
The mission of the Kindness Ranch is to provide a sanctuary and place of rehabilitation for animals who have been used in laboratory research while fostering compassion for all animals. Consistent with our mission, we work to rehabilitate our 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 we can rehabilitate. 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.
Freedom Service Dogs
Freedom Service Dogs, located in Englewood, Colorado, was established in 1987. They have received national attention in the past several years for their work with military veterans. Their mission is to train dogs to aid disabled military veterans. All dogs in the program are rescued from shelters.
These amazing dogs assist veterans who have become disabled during service, who have developed PTSD or other psychological trauma, or who have developed medical problems later in life after their service. Find Freedom Service Dogs online at www.freedomservicedogs.org and learn about the program from veterans whose lives have been transformed by their service dog.
