Our Mission

a place where rescued animals and people awaken each other

We provide physical and emotional support to people and animals through principled practices and facilitated nature based, experiential growth and learning interactions with our restorative herd of rescued animals.


 

Our Community


BIG Heart Ranch believes in the interdependence of community. Common unity means we are caring and compassionate to Mother Earth and all her beings. We are an inclusive, non-judgmental “family”.
