I am a monthly sponsor with this rescue and have personally visited multiple times and I have nothing but amazing things to say about everyone involved! The animals in their care are happy, well cared for and loved. The founder, board and volunteers are all incredibly kind and welcoming. This dedicated team not only rescues and cares for neglected and abused animals but also encourages people to adopt a more compassionate lifestyle and fosters community among animal lovers, vegans and rescuers alike through their social media. I am proud to contribute to Rancho Relaxo.

Rancho Relaxo is a well run animal sanctuary. Caitlin and the team include us with many posts ,pictures, education and ways we can get involved to make a difference. She also promotes veganism and creates a connection to the animals that’s easy to understand. They support other smaller sanctuaries locally and worldwide as well.

Rancho relaxo has been one of the biggest reasons for me going vegan. They opened my eyes to the horrible practices of our food industries. They fight tooth and nail for every life they have in their care. They are a very bright spot in a dark year.

Rancho Relaxo is an amazing organization that not only cares for many animals at their own facility but also takes care of the animal rescue community as a whole. Even when they could use all the limited funds they receive themselves for their own facility, they spread the love around to other sanctuaries in need constantly. They are a shining light in the nonprofit world and I wish more people cared as much as they do.

Rancho Relaxo is an amazing sanctuary and feels almost like a family. I love how donors can get involved by sponsoring specific animals, coming to visitor days (pre-covid), and even volunteering. Caitlin works so hard to share the animals' lives with us and to be honest about the ups and downs of life running a farm sanctuary.

Rancho Relaxo is transparent about where the donations go, and it is extremely obvious with how clean the property is, how impeccable the barns and property are maintained, and how much the animals under their care thrive. The love and care shown to the animals is unparalleled. They are the model for how all animal rescues should be run.

Rancho Relaxo is amazing! All the hard work and dedication they have for their family, (the animals) under their care is so inspiring! I was vegetarian for over 10 years before I went vegan and it was because of a Instagram post I saw of baby Chester and Potato. Caitlin helped me see and realize that going vegan was the right choice! Keep up the amazing work! I watch your incredible journey from Vancouver, Canada. I’m dream of one day being able to come and visit you all!

My first look into a true animal rescue. After following them, becoming a monthly donor and learning about animal agriculture, Caitlin’s words about veganism started to really make sense to me. There is no preaching just pure love for all animals. I love this sanctuary and I am so full of gratitude for what they do to help make the world a better place.

I am a proud donor and a sponsor of 2 precious animals at Rancho Relaxo. The fact that this amazing sanctuary is essentially run by 2 people and a hand full of volunteers blows my mind. It is so incredibly clean and peaceful there and it is like heaven on earth. Rancho Relaxo and its supporters are like an extended family as well all work to support the movement of saving animals. There is constant communication, education, and information. If you become a part of the RR family, your life will change forever.

I followed Rancho Relaxo on Instagram for a year or so before deciding to become a monthly sponsor. They proved to me that they were extremely passionate about giving previously neglected or abused animals a loving place to live out their years. Caitlin and Len put their whole hearts into what they do. It takes an emotional toll when one of their charges is sick or passes away, but they keep going.

Sure, I could sponsor a shelter here in Canada, but animal welfare knows no borders and the folks at Rancho Relaxo earned my admiration and support. Go to Instagram, check them out and I'm sure you'll agree.

What a brilliant and inspirational charity Rancho Relaxo is. I am a patreon and support from the UK. Caitlin and Len are tireless in ensuring the animals under their care want for nothing. The stories are captivating and often heartbreaking but so brilliantly shared. Rancho Relaxo has improved my knowledge and encouraged my Vegan journey. Thank you both for everything you do and for the passion and love you have for each other and the animals.

I’ve been following Rancho Relaxo on Instagram for 6-8 years now? I have them as my charity on Amazon Smiles so whenever I purchase qualified items, a portion gets donated to my favorite animal sanctuary and rescue. I love seeing all the animals and getting to know them, even if it’s just through social media at the moment. I even have portraits of Potato, Chester and Ripley framed in my kitchen! Keep up the awesome work, I hope to sponsor an animal soon too! Xoxo, Hana from AZ.

I have been following Rancho Relaxo for awhile now. I became a sponsor recently because I am truly inspired by the work they do. Caitlin and everyone there work tirelessly for every animal they can help. She is very transparent and that can be very hard on her but is so important for others to see the horrific conditions of some of the animals they rescue. The world needs more people as compassionate and dedicated to helping these poor animals live a better, safer life. Kudos to Rancho Relaxo for everything they do!!

I am a donor through Patreon, Caitlin and Len and all their volunteers do amazing work! They save some of the hardest cases, the ones that wouldn’t make it. They bear witness to the atrocities of live animal auctions and what happens to these innocent beings...the PTSD they will always have from all the atrocities they witness over and over again is something nobody should have to do! They work tirelessly, team no days off basically. They are an amazing team and are always so helpful to other sanctuaries in need.

I have been donating and following Rancho Relaxo for several years. Caitlin and company are some of the most amazing people I have ever seen. The literal blood, sweat, and tears that goes into the rescue and work they do is so inspiring and beautiful. In times where I think humanity can get no darker, they continuously prove me wrong with the deeds they do to save and provide for the innocent animals in their care. I really think any OG follower of theirs would say the same. I can’t speak for everyone, but I can definitely say for myself that through video, story, and photo I feel like I am personally invested in the lives of their rescues and feel the emotional anguish of every life lost and the love, joy, and relief of every soul saved. I will continue to support this nonprofit for as long as their championing for the animals goes on.

I have been a Rancho Relaxo Patreon supporter since I came across this sanctuary two years ago. They do amazing work in not only offering sanctuary and a safe place for victims of the meat industry, hoarding situations, or just an unfortunate life circumstance, they also take the time to educate the community. I love seeing the animals finally able to live out their days in a loving space and these two and their volunteers will go to the greatest lengths to get animals out of horrible conditions while spreading education about the importance of veganism and sustainable living while supporting other groups and sanctuaries with the same values! I just LOVE them and all they stand for! I can’t wait for the chance to take my first visit to Rancho Relaxo!

Rancho Relaxo is the most amazing sanctuary! I follow and support more than 10 farm sanctuaries and although they are ALL worthy of love and notification, there is a special air to Rancho. The realness, the love, the heartbreak is raw and helps educate so many on each rescue's story and the far reaching connection to what it means to the world in it's entirety. We need all these sanctuaries, and we need more of how Rancho operates to engulf the sanctuary realm. As in: Being open and transparent at all times, being honest and real showing every side of rescue, being educational, and being strong in principle. We all love seeing cute animals on social media, but Rancho puts a story to them and adds the reality of how hard it really is to care for all these cute animals and the time it takes to earn trust in many cases, the money for medical care, to feed, shelter, and general caretaking is substantial. 10 stars for Rancho Relaxo!

My family and I are a monthly sponsor through the Patreon Program for a horse at Rancho Relaxo named Levon.

I have known Caitlin for many years. Rancho Relaxo was a dream she had in her head for a long time before it came to fruition. She is one of the most loving and caring people you will ever meet and exemplifies what it means to be a animal rights advocate. If you are looking to support a Non Profit that literally puts their heart and soul into fighting for and saving animals, look no further Rancho Relaxo

I have been following Rancho Relaxo for some time now. The only rescue I follow that can articulate a story so passionately that I truly believe they are changing minds about animal welfare. I feel as though I am right there with them experiencing every heart break or jubilation that they encounter. Tirelessly helping animals in desperate need! Lovingly caring for those they have saved. If any rescue deserves more recognition it is Rancho Relaxo. I wish they had a series on TV. They make a difference in so many lives. They could use all the help they can get to save even more animals and bring awareness so others can be woke to the plight that so many animals encounter! Rock on Rancho Relaxo!

I’ve been a monthly Patreon supporter for awhile now. Cannot begin to tell you how hard everyone works who’s even in affiliation with Rancho Relaxo, let alone the founders themselves. They are so transparent, and go above and beyond for all the wonderful creatures in their care, and ones that aren’t. Especially inspiring is they do their best to help out other sanctuaries and regularly are raising funds not just for themselves, but others as well, even when they could put it to use as well. They are some of the best we’ve got to offer in terms of upstanding individuals and I would love for them to be honored for their never ending work and devotion.

Rancho Relaxo is an amazing non-profit animal sanctuary. Caitlin, the founder, is an inspirational woman who dedicates her life to the animals. I went vegan earlier this year and found out about Rancho Relaxo through a vegan cafe I frequent. I've since become a sponsor for their newest horse, Flame, and also for Caitlin's personal Patreon. I believe so much in what they do and look forward to attending their visitor day in a few weeks. Caitlin and her husband both share so much on Instagram that you really feel a part of their conmunity.
If you are able to donate to this wonderful organization, I highly recommend it!

I have been a part of the Rancho Relaxo community for a couple years. I started following them long before they made the big move to their beautiful new property. Caitlin and Len are both wonderful, caring people and give all they have for the animals.

I have visited both their home base and off site property over the last couple years and have had the pleasure of sponsoring two animals. First Luna Pig and now Guardian Amy.

I wholeheartedly recommend this non profit. Feel free to go ahead and give them any amount of money you wish to donate. It all goes back to the animals! Every drop of it!

Rancho Relaxo is the type of rescue that all rescues should strive to be! They go above and beyond for the animals in their care while continuing to help others in need! I run a chicken rescue in NJ and when I needed placement for hens after a large rescue of hens slated to be slaughtered because they were "not laying enough eggs," Rancho Relaxo did not hesitate to step up and take in 12 of these lovely hens. They will now have the life they deserve being recognized for who they are and not for what humans can take from their bodies. Rancho Relaxo is amazing.

I’ve been a part of the Rancho Relaxo community for about six months - been a Patreon for about five. Following Caitlin on Instagram pushed me to become vegan. I’ll forever be grateful for the insight she gives into the rescue world and how horrifying life can be for these animals. She is a truly someone I look up to. Her care and love for the animals shines so brightly. You can tell the animals are happy and loved. We need more rescues like this one instead of slaughterhouses. I in believe Rancho Relaxo.

I have been following Rancho Relaxo on Facebook for some time. Their content is compelling and thoughtful. I donate from time to time and recently I bought a tank top that says "This shirt built a barn" and I am so excited to wear it. I know that Rancho Relaxo will do amazing things with the proceeds and the donations they receive. I believe in them and their work. I fully support Rancho Relaxo and encourage others to look them up and be amazed at their compassionate work!
