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 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!

I had the pleasure to work with Caitlin on a neglect case that was daunting considering the number of animals that needed testing, medical treatment and placement. Through out it all Caitlin never gave up despite the heat, filth and heartache and found placement for every single animal!

Following Rancho Relaxo's journey of animal rescue has been life-changing for me. I've since given up meat and dairy and am steering my way to a vegan lifestyle. I'm a monthly donor and donate whenever I can to this amazing place. My kids love the animals, the rescues have really been amazing teaching moments and have helped me show them so much about kindness and compassion.
To everyone involved in this amazing sanctuary, please keep doing what you're doing. What you do is so important! You're kindness, compassion and hard work is so valued and appreciated. Thank you!

I love Rancho Relaxo, they care so much for every single animal they help save, and for the ones they couldn't. Caitlyn shares so much of herself personally as well and I find that inspiring. She also educates, and I think that's what can change hearts.

The work that they do goes above and beyond it inspires me to do the same. The love and compassion towards all living things really shows in the time and work they put into every individual animal.

My name is Amy Bines and I have been a supporter of Rancho Relaxo for a little over a year now. They are the first rescue to open my eyes to what really happens to animals at auctions, how farm animals are treated in the food industry, and the fact that so many horses are sent to slaughter. I am so grateful that they opened my eyes to these things. The work they do is nothing short of amazing. They work tirelessly and lovingly to raise awareness for those who can't speak for themselves. I am proud to be a supporter of Rancho Relaxo.

Caitlin has surrounded herself with the most compassionate and amazing group of people that constantly rally together for the animals. Rancho has formed quite a network of activists around the country to help all animals whenever they possibly can. Banding together with other sanctuaries and bridging the gap with an open mind instead of tossing judgment. These beautiful people are bringing awareness to the farming industry and changing lives both animal and human. They are non judgmental and make it very clear that all are welcome at Rancho. A visit to Rancho Relaxo is really a magical experience. Seeing the animals living their best lives and all of their adorable personalities up close is something I recommend anyone in the tri state area put on their list of to do's asap. It's very refreshing to watch this community grow and to read peoples comments about how they've changed their lifestyle because of a resident animals story. I truly believe that Caitlin and team will have had a huge part in saving this world, one animal at a time.

Rancho Relaxo...one of the best non-profits as far as I am concerned. They not only provide care for all animals they also address the care and compassion required in certain situations for the owners of these animals. They are the most caring group I have ever encountered. It is because of them I have been able to switch to a vegan life and am able to stick to it. The way they approach situations of neglect and abuse should be a model for all humanity...as far as I am concerned.

By far the best rescue for animals. I am a monthly patron and see first hand the amazing rescues by this wonderful organization. I receive pictures and stories every day with updates on how the animals are doing since being rescued. I donate to other charites and have no idea what they do. It would be my dream to do all they do for animals. I can't say enough about this organization. I plan on donating forever.

Hi there, my name is Lisa and I have been supporting rancho relaxo for over a year now. I first started following them on Instagram, and then decided that they were a wonderful organization with great values towards animals. since then, I've learned a great deal about pigs, goats, and other great animals! I was excited this last week to see that they adopted to alpacas because I love them and think that they are the coolest and weirdest animals I know. my sister and I have been eating less meat as time goes by, and I believe this has something to do with following the great work of this and other animal sanctuaries. I even got my sister a "piglets are puppies too" shirt for Christmas!I believe this particular organization to be very honest and transparent in their dealings with others, and I am proud to support their work. I especially feel this way because I know that the owners of this sanctuary actually work other jobs in addition to running the sanctuary. I can't imagine the time and energy that they must spend doing this. I firmly believe they have good hearts and loving souls towards all animals. Rancho relaxo has a great Instagram, and a wonderful patreon page as well. Support their work!

I started following Rancho Relaxo several months ago, and I never cease to be inspired by their founder! The way she advocates for animals and animal rights, educates on current issues, and fosters a space for open, inclusive dialogue is amazing. She consistently shares tidbits of her own growth journey, and encourages everyone to examine their own mindset. I truly appreciate the daily updates on all of the animals in her care, the very real posts (even when they make me cry!) about the horrors she experiences in the pursuit of saving animals, and the genuine realness she shares with us in the process. Thank you for what you do, Caitlin!
