Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: We believe animals are living, breathing, beautiful beings who are someone, not "something". Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and educate on their behalf while promoting a cruelty-free lifestyle. We are a non-profit farm animal sanctuary offering rescue and refuge to babies discarded by our food industry, specifically dairy and hospice to senior horses and those with medical needs. Once healed and healthy we connect our animals and their stories to help the children in our community to heal. We believe bringing awareness to the plight of factory farmed animals will help create a more compassionate and kinder world for all beings.

Target demographics: farmed animals

Geographic areas served: Temecula, California

Programs: Rescue, advocacy and refuge. We also offer private guided ranch tours to learn about the animals and their rescue stories. In addition, we connect our rescued residents to help those who have suffered trauma to help them heal.

Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary greatly exceeded my expectations! Three of us scheduled a tour and we ALL loved it! Jen Sale was our guide. She is seriously my hero. It was evident she puts her heart and soul into loving and rehabilitating her rescues. The animals who call SRAS home are truly blessed. Please consider a visit and making a donation!

I’ve never been a monthly donor before, until I learned about this sanctuary! They are beyond dedicated to these animals, and constantly go over and above the call of duty.
I’ve learned so much about the animals they save, and that’s because they make it a priority for people to know what happens to these sweet animals, and how they came to be there. They’re always teaching.
Mostly, what I love is that no plea for help is too much effort. They ask their community of supporters to help if necessary, as well as those who can drive a truck to make a pick up or drop off, like taking one leg of a journey to get it done. Every single animal is worth it, and they walk the walk every single day ❤️

SRAS is one of the most incredible animal sanctuaries--EVER!! They work so hard to provide the best possible care for 80+ residents. PLUS they continue to save the lives of more and more animals. They've created a little slice of paradise for beautiful beings that wouldn't even be here right now without Sale Ranch. These animals get to live out their lives knowing what it is to be loved and cared for.

I wanted to support the people who run this sanctuary because they work so hard to provide refuge for animals who need help. We are living in a time of unbelievable brutality to animals and just knowing that there are sanctuaries like this one is healing. Jen,the founder,reports that they receive requests every day for animals to be taken in and it breaks their hearts that they can’t save them all. It’s good for my heart to know that there are angels in this world like the people who work at Sales Ranch Animals Sanctuary.

Dogs and cats receive so much attention in the rescue world as most people “know” a dog or a cat. Having been raised on a dairy farm myself, farm sanctuaries touch my heart. Saving throwaway dairy calves from slaughter or a lifetime of heartbreak and enslavement is special. Not only does Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary do that, but they help to educate humans to the horrors of the farm animal industry which hopefully, grows the vegan community, too. Veganism not only saves animals lives, but it saves our Earth as animal agriculture is detrimental to our environment. Thank you Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary.

I learned of this animal sanctuary when one of their videos popped up on my Facebook page. Intrigued by their information, I pulled up their website & began to read of their beginnings, mission, and love for all animals, but especially for animals that are used to provide meat & dairy products, & are slaughtered when their usefulness has ended. The family doing this work of taking in the old, infirm, disabled, & disfigured extends to their own food choices by being vegans. The animals cared for & loved at the Sanctuary are treated with respect & dignity, provided with mobility carts when unable to walk, given companionship, receive medical care when ill & receive bottles with a mother’s care when their own mother has died. I highly recommend this organization without reservation because they serve the animals most in need of their care.

Sale Ranch Animal Sanctuary is an incredible nonprofit providing quality care & loving homes for all species of animals in Southern California. I am continually impressed with Jen’s professionalism during outreach & her compassion for all beings as she expands her mission and takes in farmed animals in need with both fiscal responsibility & immense love. I am currently a donor, but I look forward to a time when I will also be able to volunteer weekly and increase my involvement in this unparalleled animal sanctuary!

Jen and Dave at SRS pull off some of the truest of miracles for the neediest of animals. They run their entire operation on an “off-grid”, self-sustaining property. If this wasn’t already enough, SRS works often hand-in-hand with other sanctuaries to save as many lives as possible. The animals in their care receive some of the best medical attention around, including driving across the state to get to the proper resources. They are loved beyond measure and their stories touch the hearts and lives of everyone who stumbles across SRS’ page or plight. They are SUCH a worthy nonprofit who, in my opinion, doesn’t get the praise and recognition it deserves!! Please consider them.

Sale Ranch does so many wonderful rescues of farm animals, young beings that have been injured, have birth defects, or have been abandoned in the way of the industry. They have a clean, well-ordered ranch with gardens for fresh greens and vegetables for the animals, well-run barns and fresh feed, enclosures that are well-swept and maintained with shade sails for shelter. They've planted trees for shade. They've planned ahead for fire evacuation and needed equipment. They need all the help you can give to continue they're wonderful efforts. They take volunteers and need them, if you want to work with animals, as well as donations. An excellent charitable organization.

Jen spoke to our group, which raises money for San Diego charitable organizations. I was struck by the amount of work and commitment of this team to rescuing animals, especially babies, from food farms and dairies. They have a tremendous education and outreach program.

Their motivation, in part, stems from the belief that animals are beings like ourselves, rather than things. They hope to help us regain our sense of knowing other animals as beings in their own right, thus reclaiming our sense of our own humanity.

It is an outstanding organization with a track record over time, with a network in the animal food farming community, and volunteers who help place the animals.

They are very detailed oriented to their rescues and have great relations with the community and those who support the sanctuary. Their selfless giving to others and inclusive, respectful treatment of all species make this a special non-profit that is truly changing the world for the betterment of everyone!

Sale Ranch founders are the most loving and caring humans for all the fur babies that they save and help when they have an illness or are abandoned. They provide all the animals lovely and secure "homes" in the pens and corrals they live in. And all the animals rejoice in the happy, safe and loving ranch that is now their home.

I learned about Sale Ranch Sanctuary sometime during the last six months and signed up to be a monthly donor. We sponsor a pig named Etta James and had hoped to meet her during the annual "Mimoosa Brunch." Unfortunately, the event was cancelled due to the covid19 virus. There will be other opportunities to visit in the future.
What impresses me about this place is its uniqueness. I had never heard of a sanctuary for farm animals - what a great idea. And what a challenge to make this wonderful idea a reality AND keep it going.
The website details all the animal residents and their histories. You will cry, but you will also smile at the photos of these animals and their current circumstances, in which they are loved, cherished and provided with loving care for the rest of their lives.

Sale Ranch Sanctuary is a voice for those that can't have one for themselves. Jen Sale and her staff take in those that have been abandoned by their caretakers or by the meat/dairy/wool industry. They bring them to a loving home and do what is best for each animal's individual needs even though this may not be the easiest or least expensive. This may include just a little extra cuddling time, a good meal, and a safe warm place to sleep or it may include extensive medical attention including assistive devices for a short time or for the rest of their life. Sale Ranch gives each animal the physical and mental attention that they need and deserve as living beings on this planet. Just as important, Sale Ranch shares the journey (both the celebrations and the defeats) with those who cannot physically be there but are there in emotional and financial spirit doing what they can to assist. They do this by keeping volunteers and donors involved through a variety of media platforms including Facebook, emails, etc.

This is one of the most magical rescue sanctuaries I've ever been to!

All of the animals are taken care of incredibly well, and the place is super organized and very well maintained. The owner always puts the animals first and never exploits or over-exposes them to bring in more donor dollars, which I've seen some rescues do.

Each animal has its own unique story and personality, and the time and effort Jen puts into them is matched by none.

I had the pleasure of touring SRS with Jen Sale this morning. I was very impressed with the operation and with Jen's clear commitment to all the wonderful animals they have rescued. The facilities and the animals are very clean, which tells me that Jen and her volunteers are spending many many hours working to keep the ranch and the animals in the best possible condition. These are animals that were destined to die until Jen stepped in and recused them and provide them with a beautiful forever home. Every animal receives the medical attention and treatment they need. Every animal is treated with love and caring every day.
The number of hours required to maintain this level of quality care is great. The expense associated with this level of quality care is equally great. I encourage everyone to consider donating either some time or some money to this extremely worthwhile program. A few hours or a few dollars can really make a difference.

We visited last year. My husband took me to the ranch for my birthday, he knew visiting sale ranch was on my wishlist. We took our children with us so they can better understand how important it is to respect all lives. We all had a great time learning about everything the folks at sale ranch have done to help all the wonderful animals at the ranch. Everyone at the ranch was welcoming and helpful answering all our questions. Getting to meet the beautiful animals at the ranch is an unforgettable, heartmelting experience. Despite all the horrors they've been through they are so friendly and happy. We look forward to visiting again soon!

Sale Ranch is wonderful, I first started following them when they took in an extremely neglected horse named Willie. Their dedication and compassion for the animals they care for was apparently. Their commitment to educating the public and providing a loving sanctuary was the deciding factor in me becoming a monthly sponsor. Sale Ranch is a rare jewel, they are honest, hard working and 100% in love with every animal they care for. They love unconditionally and no matter how many heartbreaks they suffer remain hopeful and welcoming to the next animal who needs them. They are one in a million.

Sale Ranch Sanctuary is one of the most organized, caring, loving and well maintained facilities I have seen. On my visit they took you around the facility and told the story of each animal they have taken in and some were the worst I have heard of. Some of these animals have never been shown love or cleanliness or good health or enough food. You can tell by looking in their eyes and letting them give you hugs, how much they care for their lives and how safe and loved they feel.

I have been following SRS on Instagram for just a couple of months and already felt a personal connection to some of the animals, so I was looking forward to meeting them all yesterday on a tour. It was truly an amazing experience! Jen is a gracious host and very informative and her passion and dedication to the animals is evident. Being able to interact with all the animals was an experience I will not forget. If I lived closer I would be there every weekend volunteering, but instead I will show my support with monthly donation so SRS can continue their great work for the animals! Thank you for all you do.
