BENEFITING: Heart In Hand Critters Hollow Ranch & Rescue
Heart in Hand, Critters Hollow Ranch & Rescue is an organization dedicated to the rescue of senior horses, dogs, cats and other farm animals. The animals rescued are screened for temperament and physical ability, those that meet our guidelines will be used in our therapy educational program dedicated to working with disadvantaged children and adults along with other groups, those animals that do not meet the requirements will live out their lives on the ranch in our sanctuary. The organization also plans to works closely with the community to encourage interactive learning right at the ranch through field trips, day camps, and general admission to the public on special days. The organization was formed by Latricia and LeeAnna Romero, who have been long time equine enthusiast and animal lovers. Their first horse rescue was in 2013 but shortly thereafter recognized the need for so many more and decided to start a non-profit organization to do so. We are the "Last Resort" sanctuary. Meaning we will rescue serviceable horses that have found themselves unwanted and give them a comfortable home and the special job of helping those in need simply by being happy, healthy animals - we are their last resort but in turn they will rescue many. So many good & serviceable horses are discarded for various reasons, sometimes owners simply do not want the cost or responsibility of an senior horse, sometimes personal finances forces owners to give up their precious pets, regardless of the cause there is a obvious need to rescue those animals that have found themselves unwanted. Heart in Hand, Critters Hollow Ranch is located in McMinnville, Tennessee and is primarily managed by the directors, board members and volunteers. Our organization is always in need of donations, (new or used) equipment tools, tack and more.
