Help Us Bring a new Steer & Sheep to Rancho Compasión

Rancho Compasión would like to adopt Louie, a two-year old steer, who was originally being raised to be sold for meat by a high-school student involved with the Future Farmers of America (FFA).  We've also been contacted recently about a beautiful young Barbados sheep that was found as a stray and brought to Sonoma County Animal Services. 

We'd love to bring both of these animals to Rancho Compasión, but every new animal we rescue comes with additional costs, such as veterinarian visits, transportation, and ongoing costs of feed and care. The more money we raise the more animals we can save!

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. 

 
 

Volunteer opportunities

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!
