education outreach ACTIVISM

Our vision is to educate, inform, and inspire through the rescues in our care.  As the only R+ (positive reinforcement) focused animal rescue, we teach the principal: Rescuing animals, rescue's us. We provide free classes to children and adults on all things related to animal care, training, and safety for all involved.

Please see below for more information about the upcoming classes and programs we are offering.

Also, please sign our petition to help improve the state of Thoroughbred horse racing in the US:

We are excited to be offering a BRAND NEW class this summer.

We like to call it Hike with Horses! Although, there may be a sweet donkey or two available for love and cuddles, as well. For more information, please keep reading!

Hike with Horses!

Come take a scenic walk with us and our rescue animals (horses and donkeys)!
You are welcome to drop in for any of the classes to observe, ask questions, and join our stroll in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. All events occur at West Wind Stables in Conifer, Colorado.
If you would like to participate in handling, grooming, and/or walking the animals, you will first need to attend an Introductory class of HORSES 101! which will be offered at Aspen Park Vet Hospital. Please call the hospital for scheduling 303-838-3771.
Walkers and Hikers ages 5 and up are welcome to join us. Spend some time outdoors, surrounded by gorgeous scenery, and amazing animals, and help us keep our rescue animals socialized, clean, and in good shape. "It's good exercise for all of us!" says DrQ the Life Coach for Pet People. We hope you will join us for some or all of the walks!
There is a suggested $25 donation per person for taking the introductory class. Hikes are a suggested donation of $5 each. Please RSVP on the Resqranch Facebook page. Hope to see you!
