"It can be hard to talk to another person about trauma you’ve been through, but it’s easy to talk to an animal that has also been traumatized.” – Sergeant (RET) Christopher Maples
WE SEEK TO BRING HOPE TO EVERY HUMAN AND ANIMAL THAT SUFFERS FROM TRAUMA AND ABUSE
With our one-of-a-kind treatment program, we are able to help facilitate healing for both humans and animals who have suffered trauma. We serve a very specific clientele that has not responded to traditional counseling services. The combination of counseling facilitated by Licensed Professional Counselors or LPC interns along with the nurturing of our sanctuary animals helps lead the client to healing.
OUR COUNSELING SERVICES
What sets Ranch Hands Rescue apart from other programs is Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling (EAAC). EAAC is a psychotherapy modality that allows emotionally hurting individuals to build a relationship with a horse or other animal to bring about transformation and healing.

Testimonies of Healing
“Ranch Hands Rescue quite literally saved my life and I can‘t thank them and their animals enough. My life turned around after having animal therapy. It made me realize that if these animals that have suffered so much abuse and are still loving and kind, then maybe I could feel better too. Knowing that I could help animals and they could help my healing was life-changing. Thank you RHR for saving my life and giving me hope for my future.”
