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 an amazing animal rescue sanctuary. Their animals are clean and well cared for. Not only do they take in so many animals, they help find homes for those they can't. They support other rescues and sanctuaries. They help educate other rescues and sanctuaries. They dontate money to other rescues and sanctuaries. Caitlin is so dedicated. She seeks out the best help and resources for her animals. She educates the public. And with some kind of magic, she appears to have white carpet in her house. She is such an inspiration to us all to do better, to do more, and to give more of ourselves.

One of the most dedicated, informed and unbiased rescues I have ever come across. Rancho Relaxo’s number one priority is always welfare of animals.
The way they handle and new rescue, or even large rescues like the Labrador Hill case, they remain completely dedicated to the animals.
1000% cannot recommend them enough

I have personally visited Rancho Relaxo and can say whole heartedly that this sanctuary is the epitome of goodness. This organization changes lives; not just the lives of the countless animals they save and care for every day, but also for those of us who take those animals' stories into our hearts and become vegan, vegetarian, cruelty free, and animal advocates as a result. Rancho Relaxo has a simple yet powerful goal....saving animals and inspiring others to do the same. What more could you ever ask for in a rescue?

Even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Rancho Relaxo works tirelessly to save as many animal lives as possible. They have changed my entire life, as I know they have done the same for so many of their supporters. But most importantly, they change the lives of all the animals they save. Rancho Relaxo opens our eyes to the harsh realities of the world, while also showing us what ultimate kindness and love look like. They constantly keep their supporters in the loop of new rescue situations as well as update us on the animals we have come to know and love, through videos, photos and words. Rancho Relaxo not only helps just their own rescued animals, but they are so often supporting other animal rescues in a variety of ways. In my eyes, that is an organization that is truly selfless. Lastly, the constant appreciation Rancho Relaxo shows to their supporters and donors, allows us all to feel like we are a true part of helping to save these animals and a real part of the Rancho Relaxo organization .

Caitlin, Len and team are angels on earth who literally live for saving animals and providing a safe haven for those doomed to an otherwise merciless fate. Their continued dedication to rescue even in incredibly difficult and heartbreaking situations reconfirms over and over my own choice in going vegan.

They're truly in it for the animals and it shows with the exceptional care and compassion they give to every living being.

This rescue bad mouthed others & other rescues on FB, posted names of animals & individuals that had no involvement with them while falsely taking credit for getting animals released. When asked to remove all information about animals & individuals she had no interaction with she blocked those that complained about her actions. She also has written posts attacking a rescue that reported a neglect case. Rescue isn't about bashing others who tried to help, publicizing glory & success while bashing others, it isn't about fundraising but about doing what is best for animals involved without caring for any recognition or repayment. THAT is TRUE RESCUE.

This review is not only slanderish - but it is also fabricated and untrue. Bonnie84 was part of a mass mob attack on Rancho Relaxo and Twist of Fate in the summer of 2018 after we stepped up to place close to 70 horses from a neglect case. Not only has Bonnie never even been to Rancho Relaxo, she admittedly spoke about not knowing anything about this organization. This review should be taken down.

I came across this non profit animal rescue just by chance on Instagram. I was drawn in by their amazing rescue stories and the way the continuously go above and beyond for the animals. Caitlyn gives her blood, sweat and tears to run the place 24/7, and I have no idea when she even sleeps. She’s also willing to take on the cases that most everyone else probably would not take on or they would just end up euthanizing the animal. Caitlyn fights for these animals and goes that extra mile.

I found this non profit farm animal sanctuary via IG. Caitlin and Len are both amazing humans. They run themselves into the ground ensuring the quality of life is never anything short of excellent for the animals. Due to emotional and beautiful live feeds and stories I am proudly vegan. Nothing is hidden with your donations they are very clear and open with how funds are spent. They also engage Patreons with questions about possible rescues and what everyone thinks. Rancho Relaxo deserves recognition for all their hard work.

The depth of their concern for animals is obvious. Hey put their whole lives into looking after the vulnerable, attend animal auctions to rescue who they can. They sacrifice a large part of their own life to care for animals that need help, Rancho Relaxo is wonderful!

Caitlin, Len, and everyone involved with Rancho Relaxo completely live for the animals. Every life is precious, every one is a unique personality. Their followers end up emotionally invested in every single animal, in their journey, in every struggle and victory, in every unfortunate tragedy. We become their tribe because of how invested we become, how much we share the journey with them. No rock is left unturned and no expense is too much for Rancho Relaxo and its tribe when it comes to saving animals, always for the animals' highest good.

I’ve been following Rancho Relaxo for years now, and I’ve seen it grow and thrive and make the world better. It’s my favorite animal sanctuary in the world, because not only does it save animals and educate other humans, but the people who run it - Caitlin and Len - are the most incredible / funny / loving / smart / brave / strong / genuine people. Caitlin has even been helping me in my pursuit of a kidney donor, which I finally have because of her generosity and compassion. RR is the reason I’m vegetarian and going vegan after my transplant. My life is exponentially better because of this rescue. I will love them forever.

Just by following Rancho Relaxo on Insta, Love their Mission and their Message. They have saved so many animals that would've otherwise gone to slaughter. They have done so much, considering they're a small org. It's about time due recognition be given to smaller groups that are offering so much in terms of saving precious animal's lives.

I started following Rancho Relaxo a little over a year ago and it was a specific video that Caitlin had posted that hit me right in the gut. I knew I wanted to be a vegetarian, but after watching this one video 4 or 5 times in a row and balling my eyes out right along with her, I knew I had to go vegan. She is so straightforward and never ceases to amaze me and all of her followers on her platforms with the hardwork, patience and dedication that it takes to run Rancho..and of course we absolutely cannot leave out her wonderful hubby Len! The bonds the both of them have with their animals is something to behold and gives hope to all of us that the world is changing a little bit at a time for the better. I am striving to live a more compassionate second half of my life and I gain my inspiration daily from Caitlin, Len and all the animals at Rancho Relaxo!

Can't find the right words to describe how amazingly awesome Caitlin and Len of Rancho Relaxo are, not only to their own rescues, but also to their fellow rescuers, the rescue and sanctuary community in America as a whole, AND to the cause of animal welfare and animal liberation. They just get it, are incredibly positive, sturdy and intelligent about things and have a way of communicating it to the people: THEY ARE AWESOME!!
