About Us

Nestled among 165-acres of woodland near Union, Missouri, the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch is haven for hundreds of abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, pigs, ducks and other farm animals. The ranch is one of the most comprehensive horse and farm animal care and rehabilitation centers in the country. In addition to animal care, ranch staff provide hands-on humane education experiences for both children and adults.

Life at Longmeadow

It’s daybreak at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. Horses are out-to-pasture on the 165 acre ranch.

Dash was extremely underweight when he was rescued with several other horses. Now that he’s healthy, he can work with Longmeadow trainers.

Breakfast is served! Rescued horses enjoy feeding time at pasture.

Classroom hatching projects and unexpected gifts are only a few of the reasons unwanted ranch animals arrive at Longmeadow. From here, they’ll get a second chance at a loving, forever home.

Rescued sheep make their home at Longmeadow as Barn Buddy ambassadors, representing abused and neglected ranch animals.

During our Wagon Days events and the annual Spring Fling, visitors can enjoy a wagon ride tour of the 165-acre facility.

Children can enjoy age-appropriate programs with our humane educators.

Longmeadow Rescue Ranch is an idyllic setting for rescued animals to begin their second chance at life.

Many different kinds of farm animals find refuge at Longmeadow: llamas, pigs, goats and sheep are all common residents.

Willie was rescued after a trailer bound for slaughter overturned on the highway. His second chance landed him in the show ring, and he’s also a wonderful ambassador, teaching others about proper animal care.
