WHAT WE DO

Ranch Hands Rescue fills a special niche in mental health counseling services in that we specialize in treating the more complex trauma cases, such as victims of severe and repetitive abuse and people not making progress in their current treatment programs. We heal emotionally battered people and severely abused animals, then give them a purpose at Ranch Hands Rescue -through our Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling (EAAC) program, facilitated by specifically selected Licensed Professional Counselors and LPC Interns.

Counseling Center

RHR is the first organization in the world to partner rescued farm animals that have experienced abuse and neglect with clients in deep psychotherapy counseling sessions. We provide unique, trauma-informed counseling to people with a wide range of mental health issues, including domestic/sexual abuse, sex-trafficking, trauma, substance abuse, anger management, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, relationship problems, as well as hope for veterans and their families dealing with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), and more.

Animal sanctuary

We rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for the worst-of-the-worst farm animal abuse and neglect cases. The animals that will live out their lives at the RHR sanctuary are incorporated into the Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling program, and are given love and purpose. Our animals live out their lives in a peaceful and happy environment.

BECOME A PARTNER

When you partner with Ranch Hands Rescue you will know that you are dramatically changing the quality of life for a person in need or an abused animal. Here is one of their stories.

Image

DAISY - Was brought to us with a broken neck
AGE: 8-year old goat
AT Ranch Hands Rescue: 5-1/2 years

Daisy was malnourished, scared, and distrustful toward humans. After working with
veterans suffering from PTSD and children in our counseling program, she learned to not
only trust but to cherish human touch again.
Daisy has become an important perspective change, for many individuals in our programs,
as she provides the opportunity for them to serve her needs and witness her own trust and
love -in humans be renewed through her living happily in the sanctuary of Ranch Hands Rescue.
