"A Year of Gifting" Week 6

The Kindness Ranch

I learned many years ago from my grandmother's example, and later from a wise and compassionate person, that if we can't be kind to the most defenseless creatures on the planet, our animal friends, how can we ever learn to be kind to each other. 

I remember as a young girl of about five years old being stopped for a long time on the road because of an accident and looking at the big truck next to me loaded with cows.  I could see their terrified eyes through the holes in the trucks and this is the first time I truly connected with another living creature.  Someone in the car told me of their fate and I couldn't imagine how people could be so cruel; as I grew older I learned that people could do many horrible things to animals. 

Naturally when one of our Imagine Peace Friends pointed out an animal sanctuary dedicated to taking in research animals, I knew I'd want to feature them in our campaign.  Those gorgeous brown eyes still haunt me today, they remind me about the precious four legged companions that share the earth with us and don't have a voice; they count on us to show our humanity. 
Please join me this week in pledging a minimum of $3-10 to support the Kindness Ranch.  


About Us

Kindness Ranch is the only sanctuary in the US that takes in all kinds of research animals. While new, it is the result of a decade of work, saving, and planning.

Laboratory animals have long held a special place in the heart of Dr. David Groobman, Founder of Kindness Ranch. Successful in business, Dr. Groobman first saved enough to provide for his family into the future. Once this was accomplished, he dedicated all the profits of his business for ten years to the ranch. He searched four years to locate the perfect 1,000 acre parcel near historic Hartville in Wyoming.

Groobman's passion attracted caring board members to the cause. Together, they began planning for a sanctuary with the expectation that the residents will always receive the best in animal care and that dogs and cats would be rehabilitated in a home-like environment. Ground was broke in 2006. After building four guests yurts, a dog yurt, a cat yurt, and a managers' yurt, construction was finished in the summer of 2007. The benefits to the animals are obvious: they are well-cared for in every aspect of their lives.
