HartSong Ranch Animal Sanctuary is a magical place for horses and farm animals. Here, we settle them into a world of quiet and tranquility, a paradise within nature, a forever home… a place where they will suffer no more.
HartSong Ranch celebrates the vivid emotions of farm animals and strives to enlighten the public about these fascinating beings through sanctuary tours, rescue efforts and "on the ranch" classroom sessions focusing on kindness to animals and compassionate food choices, based on our belief that…every life matters.
Seeking VolunteersVolunteers are needed at HartSong Ranch Animal Sanctuary for a variety of tasks. We are currently seeking able bodied, hard working folks who thoroughly enjoy working out of doors and in the company of horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, turkeys, chicken and geese. Also, for folks not interested to work directly with the animals but are in support our mission, we are seeking administrative-minded individuals to manage and oversee positions such as Volunteer Coordinator, Press Release Coordinator, and Silent Auction Coordinator.

ClipperAs if he were the main character out of Anna Sewell’s 1877 classic “Black Beauty”, Clipper, the rescued race horse, is doing well at HartSong Ranch.
Like Black Beauty, he soon discovered, "... here my story ends. My troubles are all over, and I am at home."
Born in 1988, Clipper was a race horse; perhaps with a champion’s pedigree. He has a tattoo on the inside of his lip that may link him to Man o’ War, one of the most remarkable race horses of the 20th Century. But when the Thomas family of Georgetown found him at a Kelsey ranch two months ago, he was near starvation. They saved him; then realized he needed more intensive care and attention. Cameron, the Thomas’ 13 year old son, suggested that they contact HartSong Ranch. They did, and last month Clipper joined 9 other sanctuary horses at HartSong.
Support for Clipper received a generous boost from Karen Gray of ArkAngels in the form of a check for $1,000. The money came from the sale of the ArkAngel music CD. All funds from the sale of the CD are donated to support HartSong Ranch, PAWED, and Sierra Wildlife Rescue.
The ongoing saga of Clipper is as enriching as it is intriguing. It was covered well by the Mt. Democrat. And now chronicled by Kathy’s blogs(Clipper Updates) . Watch for continued updates.
