Give a Gift
Thousands of horses and farm animals have found a safe haven at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. They receive the kindness and the best of care from our experienced staff and devoted volunteers.
They have been given a second chance. A chance to heal from neglect and abuse. A chance to nourish their starved bodies. A chance to be adopted into a caring home.
Learn How Your Gift Helps Rescued Horses and Farm Animals
Second Chances Equine Fund
The Second Chances Equine Fund was designed to help provide rescued horses with food, life-saving veterinary care, farrier services and training. Rescued horses and other equines that have been subjected to abuse and/or neglect or suffer from illness or injury often require weeks, sometimes months, of rehabilitation that wouldn’t be possible without Longmeadow and the Second Chances Equine Fund.
Safe Stay Fund
Our rescued animals constantly test physical barriers – behavior previously learned in search of food or water – causing additional wear, tear and stress on aging fencing, stalls and other structures. And Longmeadow’s fencing is in dire need of repair – the current fencing is original to the opening of Longmeadow in 1988, and staff and volunteers must often interrupt animal care duties to fix broken fencing.
Help keep Longmeadow animals safe and secure, maintain our barns and other facilities, and fix our fences!
Triple R Fund
Rescue • Rehabilitate • Rehome
Neglected pot bellied pigs, goats, sheep and other farm animals often come to Longmeadow suffering from lack of nutritious food and water, parasites and disease. The Triple R Fund provides special food, specialized rehabilitation, and medical supplies specific to species and breed.
Sponsor a Barn Buddy!
Have you ever wanted a Ranch animal of your very own, but one wouldn’t fit in your living room? Sponsor a Barn Buddy! Your sponsorship will help feed, board and provide medical care for the animal of your choice.
