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. 

 
 

Hoedown 2019…Save the Date!

Our Hoedown 2018 event helped us to raise more than $27,000 to support the animals at Rancho!

Save the date for next year's Hoe Down: Sunday, September 1, 2019.

Thanks to Hoedown 2018 Sponsors & Donors

Thanks to these generous organizations and businesses for donating items to be auctioned off at the Hoedown on September 2nd, 2018 .

 
 

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!
