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.

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.

One of the best and most awesome non profits! I am a monthly donor and am thrilled to provide a small amount of help for their mission.

Caitlin and her cause stole my heart. She is the epitome of how one person (now many) can absolutely make a difference. Her true love and compassion for what she does is humanity at its best. She doesn’t sugarcoat it either. It’s hard, physical and heartbreaking work. As long as she’s serving her life’s purpose, I’ll be donating to the cause.

Caitlin and Rancho Relaxo changed my world forever. Shortly after following her journey on Instagram I decided to become Vegan for the animals. I am a monthly donator and have visited the sanctuary more than once. The animals there are beautiful, healthy and very happy!! Caitlin has dedicated her whole life to making the world better for these animals. We need more people like Caitlin and the whole Rancho Relaxo team in the world. I have so much love for this sanctuary.

I loooove Rancho Relaxo, what they stand for, the way they care for the animal residents they have, the team of wonderful people and everyone who helps out and is part of such a wonderful family. Rancho Relaxo has been an inspiration for many and it has definitely changed many, many lives (non-human and human animal lives). I have hosted many fundraisers to raise funds for Rancho Relaxo, I am also a recently new Patron on their Patreon page, and I volunteer as much as I can and I will continue to do so.

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!

This is absolutely my favorite Farm Animal Sanctuary! I have been sponsoring their farm animals for the for the last couple years. First with Luna Pig and now with Guardian Doggie, Amy! Sponsoring has been a wonderful experience for me.

Caitlin, Len and all the volunteers take very good care of everyone. They animals are happy, healthy and very loved. I've been there several times in person and each time has been better than the last. This sanctuary is highly recommended for following on social media, visiting and for giving donations.

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.

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!

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!

I have been an avid follower of Rancho Relaxo for six years now. This year I became a Patreon for my favorite animal on the farm, King Cale. The tireless work, dedication and love that Caitlin gives to each animal that she crosses paths with, rescues or places to other sanctuaries is above and beyond. An inspiration in every way. I can't wait to visit the farm again this coming July, the first time I did was one of the best days ever. Caitlin and Len are two people the world needs more of. I will continue to donate to this non-profit for as long as I can. Keep up your amazing work.

I started following Rancho Relaxo a few years ago and they are the ones who made me go from pescatarian to full fledged vegan!

I am inspired by their tireless advocacy and pure of heart work to make a better life for so many animals and at the same time share reality of their rescue life.

I am a full time artist and have become a patreon for Rancho Relaxo as well as several other wonderful rescues and even though at this moment I am a Dollar a month for each I try to help any way I can . That is why in 2018 I created my Thanks, Giving Back! Program where 5% of each of my paintings are donated to a rescue. I have sent Rancho Relaxo 3 times donations from this program in the honor of my clients to help spread the word.

I hope to be able to support Rancho Relaxo many more times in the years to come because they just do some incredible work and it’s an honour to help them in any way I can!

I have not been happier to see my money leave my bank account as I am with Rancho Relaxo. I know it likely is a lot of effort not only to do what they do, but to include those of us supporting in the way they do really makes it that much better. I wish I was someone who could go and start a rescue for animals, but my journey is owning a company in NYC and loving on my 13 yr old chihuahua. I feel like I am giving to someone who is out there doing for me what I can't and I could not be happier to have found them years ago. I even went vegan after 7 years of being vegetarian because Rancho Relaxo showed me why I should without ever telling me to. I love it!

I have always wanted to open an animal sanctuary to partner with local charities in the Denver area- I have it all planned out in my head :-). It's going to be Tuck's place, after my rescue dog that changed so so much for me. I started to follow non-profits to get ideas and inspiration. Rancho Relaxo's missions, messages and goals are nothing short of inspiring. I find myself following all the work they do and rooting for all their new rescues. They are really doing such amazing work and it is so comforting to know there are people out there like this who fight for these animals and causes so passionately. Take one look at Pistachio!!

I have been a follower and patron supporter of this rescue for a few years now. Caitlin gives every part of herself to her rescue. The animals are always priority number one and she is always trying to educate rather than bash or put down people of different view points or those that bash her. She is amazing, as is her rescue efforts. She makes a huge impact in many of her followers lives.

They are extremely transparent in all they do and I have all faith in Rancho Relaxo and their mission to care for all their animals and future ones they rescue.
