Marks & Spencer Stratford upon Avon Branch, vote us 'Charity of the Year'

We've been absolutely bowled over by the Stratford upon Avon branch of Marks & Spencers naming The Rescue Ranch as their 'Charity of the Year'.

In addition to collection tins that have been placed at tills in the store, the manager and staff also collect and keep out of date stocks of fruit and veg for us to add to the feed for the goats, even delivering this to us on many occassions (thanks Steve).  The Guinea Pigs also love a little bit of the fruit too, their little faces light up!

Thanks so much to all the staff and management at the store, you really have made a huge difference to the animals lives here at The Rescue Ranch  

Sue on BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire

The Rescue Ranch featured on BBC Radio Coventry & Warwickshire on 19th November...  In an interview with Vic Minette, Sue got to let everybody know about what goes on here at the sanctuary including details about how tough the job has become in all the wet weather we've had over the last few months.  Mud and more mud has been the norm for quite a while.  Roll on Spring eh!!

Thanks to wonderful presenter Vic Minette for showing interest in us here at The Rescue Ranch and plugging us to a much wider audience!  

BMW volunteers decend upon us and work their socks off!

In June 2018 The Alphbet Sales Team from BMW Motors sent a team of 25 volunteers to The Rescue Ranch and in a whirlwind of a day, built, painted, repaired and improved almost everything we'd got!  These were all jobs that would have taken us an entire year to get around to and we're so grateful for their help.  As well as all this hard work they also raised enough money to build us two new field shelters which have been so useful and were so badly needed.  

Wonderful people, every one of them.  Special thanks to Suzie Cooper for organizing and supporting us with such determination.       

 Welcome to The Rescue Ranch. Established in 1996 as a self financed sanctuary but now partly funded on kind donations. Founded by Susan Franks

 We provide lifelong sanctuary for farm & domestic animals in need,particulary elderly or disabled animals and occassionally some with special needs

Because we don't rehome animals that we rescue, we don't have adoption fees to fall back on. We give them love and care till the end of their natural lives often giving round the clock care for ailing older ones and terminally ill animals. No expense is spared and we never withhold treatments due to lack of donations, often using our personal funds to pay for treatment.

We often take in animals which are difficult to rehome from other rescue charities.


We apprecaite any kind donations, even if that's just 50p, every little helps!

The Rescue Ranch has an Amazon UK wish list with lots of essentials that you can order and send direct.

You can also raise money without it costing you a penny by using 'Easyfundraising' when you shop online.  Just go to 'easyfundraising' first and choose 'The Rescue Ranch Warwickshire' then link to the store you require.
