Nestled among 165 acres of woodland near Union, MO, 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.
We are excited to announce that Longmeadow Rescue Ranch has partnered with The Right Horse Initiative, a group of animal welfare professionals and equine industry leaders focusing our collective knowledge toward a professional, logical approach that supports at-risk equines.

Life at Longmeadow
It’s daybreak at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch. Horses are out-to-pasture on the 165 acre ranch.
Breakfast is served! Rescued horses enjoy feeding time at pasture.
During our Wagon Days events and the annual Spring Fling, visitors can enjoy a wagon ride tour of the 165-acre facility.
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.
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.
Rescued sheep make their home at Longmeadow as Barn Buddy ambassadors, representing abused and neglected ranch animals.
Dash was extremely underweight when he was rescued with several other horses. Now that he’s healthy, he can work with Longmeadow trainers.
Children can enjoy age-appropriate programs with our humane educators.
