Hoedown 2018

Our annual Benefit for Rancho Compasión will take place on Sunday, September 2, 2018. The theme of this year's event is "Hoedown" - be sure to wear your favorite Western garb! - and we are hoping to raise $20,000 this year.

We can’t meet our goal without the support of people like you.

Please consider making a donation of either $500, $1000, $2500, or $5000 using the buttons to the right, to help sponsor our event. By giving to Rancho Compasión, you will help us to rescue farmed animals in need, provide veterinary care for them, and ensure that they have proper food and a well-maintained, safe home in which to live. Your donations will also allow us to conduct visitor days and school tours where we can engage with the community, perform outreach, and help people learn about a compassionate lifestyle that not only benefits the animals, but the environment and all humans as well.

We hope that we can count on your help to make this year’s event one of our best yet!
