Six New Hounds Arrive at Kindness Ranch

Ross 013 In December, Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary acquired six more hounds that were released from a research laboratory. Chandler, Joey, Phoebe, Monica, Rachel and Ross are approximately one-year old and were used in nutrition studies.  Phoebe 12

Like many rescue animals, the dogs come to the ranch with little or no training and no idea of what it means to live in a home. The staff is working every day to teach the dogs the basic skills to help them succeed in a home environment. In this past month, they have been learning new skills, enjoying their walks and playing with other dogs. 

Kindness Ranch was founded in 2006 and offers former research animals a second chance. We provide sanctuary to 60+ animals at any given time, including dogs, cats, horses, pigs and sheep. Since our inception, 351 animals were released to us from research labs and 243 former research animals found their forever homes.  

Will you open your heart and provide a forever home for a former research animal? These hounds will be available for adoption very soon! We also have several other hounds and beagles that are ready and waiting to go home. Please visit our Meet our Dogs page for details! 


Want to Help? We currently have 16 dogs, most are large hounds, we are going through 15-20 bags of dog food a month!

You can purchase a bag(s) of dog food, and have it sent straight to Kindness Ranch. We have made it easy to do! Just click here to purchase Taste of the Wild Dog Food straight from our Amazon Wish List! Please remember to include a note with your name and address during the checkout on Amazon, otherwise they will not share your information with us.

We couldn't continue to fulfill our mission without your generous contributions and support!

Success Stories in 2014 for Former Research Animals

joey1 With your help, Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary had a record year in 2014 with 78 intakes and 54 adoptions of former research animals. In January we took in 19 large hounds, what a adventure! We took in 4 ferrets for the first time ever, they went straight into a foster home in Colorado. 

62 dogs and 16 cats were released from research labs, and 39 dogs and 15 catsfound their forever homes with people that opened their hearts to some amazing animals such as Snip, Mollie, Oliver and Todd, Penny, Bingley, Atlas, Gordon, Gracie Noelle, Baretta, Stretch, Kramer, Peaches, Jane and Austin and Ming-Ming, just to name a few! 

We also became a Petco adoption partner to help adopt our kitties, participating in adoption events in Cheyenne, WY.  

Several volunteers visited us this summer and left with dogs or cats, Ed & Dee from Ohio stopped to visit for a couple days on a trip to the west coast, on the way back to Ohio they detoured to Wyoming (a long detour!) to adopt Peaches, a cat they bonded with during their visit and couldn't stop thinking about. 

Penny a 13 year old coon hound mix became a companion dog for a veterans with PTSD.

Brothers Todd & Oliver were gratefully adopted together, which was a dream come true. 

Mollie found her forever home with Darrin, a long term volunteer. The third time was a charm! 

Baretta the kitty was a five year resident of Kindness Ranch and finally found the purfect home! 

Our kitties also ended the year moving into their brand new kitty paradise building, thanks to our amazing donors that helped us make it happen! 

We couldn't continue our mission to help former research animals without our truly amazing contributors, supporters, adopters, fosters, volunteers and staff! 

Thank you for special and very rewarding 2014!
