Big Heart Ranch is Malibu’s most loved nature-based community wellness center and animal rescue sanctuary where people and animals awaken each other.


“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”



Located along the Pacific Coast Highway below the hills of Malibu, California, Big Heart Ranch welcomes families and individuals from all walks of life regardless of age, origin, race, religion, or resources. 

Our intention is to provide a safe, supportive, and empowering space for people to disconnect from the unnatural world and reconnect to their natural wisdom so that we may learn to live in harmony with nature and each other.



For over 12 years Big Heart Ranch has been dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of neglected or displaced farm animals and is presently a forever home to over 70.

Our animal residents have provided life-changing growth and healing connective experiences to thousands of individuals and families from underserved communities.

Our volunteer community understands the transformative effects of being in nature and being of service. We’re accepting volunteers to help with daily care of the herd and garden.
