Triple O Ranch Equine Sanctuary is what you would call a "mom and pop" organization. They have two full time employees, Wally and Elizabeth Orona. Wally is a retired Fort Worth, Texas firefighter and Elizabeth is a full time horse savior advocate. She stays active fighting horse slaughter and kill buyers. The sanctuary is home to several blind horses, and one blind cow, numerous starved and abused horses confiscated by sheriff officers, and other neglected animals as room allows.Wally and Elizabeth try to maintain as much of a natural habitat for the horses as is possible.
Every penny donated is used for the animals..they are very open and proud of their ability to manage their available funds. Not only do they provide necessary feed and supplements, each horse has a name and their very own loving and attention. Each horse's personality is treasured and nurtured. I don't know how to post pictures and videos on here, but if you check their website, you will see for yourself what a great place it is. Especially, when you see the animal's condition change from awful to wow!
The Triple O is a " heaven on earth" for mistreated, neglected, and unwanted animals. Even in death, they are honored and humanely buried on the ranch. Wally and Elizabeth devote their entire lives to the daily care of their guests..no vacations, no holidays.
Visit their website and see for yourself. It may make you cry to see the shape some of the horses are in but keep watching, because you will laugh when you see what good food and tender care can do!

The Triple O is exactly what it says..its all about the horses. Every penny goes to the animals and the owners do everything possible to keep the horses healthy and happy. There are only two full-time employees and they are Elizabeth and Walley, the owners. The only compensation they receive is the love from the animals. Before you donate to an organization be sure you know how the money is spent! Triple O is the best!!

Great transparency, fiscally responsible. I feel comfortable donating here because, with their location within an hour of me, I can go anytime and check up on what's going on. They do a lot with very limited funds, and without a lot of drama. They work with local law enforcement, and are available for guidance on helping horses find safe landings.

An extraordinary Nonprofit that operates professionally, with operational efficiency, is fiscally responsible, and demonstrates the highest level of integrity. But above all, when you visit Triple O...you see and feel LOVE. You witness a passion for our animals and a lifetime COMMITMENT to their safety and happiness. Triple O is the Rescue/Sanctuary that has impressed me more than any of the many I've seen, but being there also touched my heart. I give this nonprofit my highest recommendation, and my sincerest thanks.

This couple work tirelessly for the benefit of all the animals in their care--horses, donkeys, mules, llamas, rabbits, cats, a dog etc. Taking in cruelty cases turned over by law enforcement, those needing sanctuary, rehabilitation, surgery, and blind horses, etc. They are very open about their ranch, and openly post updates of each animals' progress. They invite volunteers. You can see them on facebook. Very few would devote the time, energy and resources to care for animals--primarily equines, as they do.
