Zuma's Rescue Ranch is the ideal example of a non-profit dedicated to its cause. Its focus on horses and kids is true and honest and they really do put the cause above all else. The horses are taken care of in the best conditions I've ever seen and the programs are for the benefit of all. If you are looking for a place to donate your time or money, definitely check out Zuma's!

Zuma's is not only a representation of my family and my upbringing, but also a constant reminder to myself and to others to give back to those truly in need. To take your good fortune and share it with those less fortunate, both human and animal. No matter what occurs in my life, I know I can go to the ranch and be grounded, loved and supported by everyone there. I could not be more proud of my family for their truly selfless undertaking, and my gratitude to them for what their actions and the outcome that is Zuma's has given me. While I am not a learning child or a rescued animal, I truly feel the humanity and good nature I learn each day at Zuma's makes me a better person, a stronger business person and a more aware human being. No matter what your commitment to Zuma's is, I can guarantee you my family, our horses and these children will change your life.

The Volunteers at Zuma's make such a huge difference in the possibilities around the ranch. Last weekend Paul the main man at Zuma's was away and Jodi his wife was left on her own to care for the 40 horses.... Well that was not the case as Mike Hoagland a dedicated volunteer showed up and boy was he helpful. There was no water, no of the hydrants would come on and it was not due to freezing. Mike stuck around and helped Jodi figure out the mystery, called a well and pump company, Tri-County Pump answered the phone on a Saturday morning and saved the day. 40 horses with no water is a big big problem. While it took hours to get the water situation fixed, more volunteers showed up and helped out; Lance Giddeon arrived simply to show his father the horses and jumped in and began hauling water from the property next door to all of the horses. Amanda Davis fed all of the horses, Stout Street Foundation's "Gary" and volunteer Amanda Zizza cleaned the pastures, and stalls. It was a hearty group of dedicated volunteers that kept things going this day at Zuma's.
