Help us provide for our new Steer & Lamb
Rancho Compasión is thrilled to have recently added Louie the Steer and Cinnamon the Barbados Lamb, to our family of rescued animals.
Since every new animal we rescue comes with additional costs, such as veterinarian visits, transportation, and ongoing costs of feed and care, we have launched a GoFundMe campaign to help fund these expenses. The more money we raise the more animals we can save, so please consider donating to this campaign.
A forever home
At Rancho Compasión, we provide a home to previously neglected, exploited, and abused farm animals. Founded by Miyoko and Michael Schinner, our home and sanctuary nest in the bucolic town of Nicasio, California, surrounded by beautiful redwood trees, bountiful wildlife, and a rich farming culture. We open our home to a growing number of rescued animals with the support of compassionate family and volunteer caretakers.
Meet our family
We have a big family! We provide home for rescued goats, sheep, cows, pigs, chickens, and ducks. Meet Reggie, Goober, Princess and much more. Life on the ranch doesn't get any better - or more compassionate - than this.
It takes many hours, many hands, and many kind hearts to keep things running smoothly here, and projects always abound. We welcome occasional and regular volunteers. Come on down to the ranch and lend a hand!
From volunteer workdays, school fieldtrips, potlucks, visitation, to vineyard dinners, the Rancho is often humming with activity. Visitations are monthly from spring through fall (weather permitting) on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Check out our calendar for more information.
