Our Hoedown 2018 event helped us to raise more than $27,000 to support the animals at Rancho! We hope to raise even more at this year's Hoedown, which will take place on Sunday, September 1, 2019. Click the “Hoedown Information & Tickets” button to the right for the lowdown on the Hoedown.

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 sanctuary is nestled in the bucolic town of Nicasio, California, surrounded by beautiful redwood trees, bountiful wildlife, and a rich farming culture. We open our sanctuary to a growing number of rescued animals with the support of compassionate supporters.
New Baby Goats!
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 field trips, potlucks, tours, to vineyard dinners, the Rancho is often humming with activity. Visitor Tours take place monthly from spring through fall (weather permitting) on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Check out our calendar to the right, or our Visit/Events page, for more information.
