Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch is a No Kill Animal Rescue, Sanctuary, Advocacy & Education organization. We provide a safe, loving, lifetime home to more than 150 exotic, farm, and domestic animals, as well as dozens of the more familiar cats and dogs. We facilitate the adoption of spayed and neutered animals to appropriate and fully screened families. Many animals, due to age, physical issues, or type will remain at Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch indefinitely.
Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch is one of the largest No Kill shelters in the country. We receive no funding through county, city or other government organizations and are wholly dependent upon your support and donations to do the work of educating people and protecting and advocating for animals. We have no paid employees and corporate officers receive no compensation. At Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch, the resident animals come first. They have the opportunity to live out their lives having wonderful friends to share the journey be they human, other species, or those like themselves. Visitors to our shelter facility have the opportunity to see and interact with conventional as well as less familiar animals. All are recognized as individuals and treated with the consideration and respect they so deserve. The opportunity to see and interact with the true essence and nature of non human beings when living in a situation of safety, equal consideration, love, peace, and respect is what makes Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch unique.
Many animals have come to us from either abuse or abandonment situations. With time, psychological space, and consistent respect, we have found that almost without exception they eventually forget their former situations. However, we are ever mindful that no being, human or non, ever really forgets. Abused animals require time to adjust to being treated with kindness and love, abandoned pets often grieve the loss of their former guardians, farm and feral animals quickly realize they have come to be in a very special place where they are recognized, respected, loved, and treated as sentient beings in non human bodies.
Darlynn's Darlins Rescue Ranch advocates for and affirms the fundamental respect and equal consideration due every sentient being sharing our planet. This guiding principle is reflected in the daily operation of our hands-on, no-kill animal rescue and shelter. Our appropriate awareness educational programs for the public, especially for young people, embody bold but simple ideas for a peaceful, healthy existence in harmony with the non-human members of the global family. We dare to imagine a better life for all ... at the expense of none.
