This is our FUNDRAISER for the animals, folks. Due to our extended closure the last few summers we need your support more than ever, and we’re very excited to share this new festivity with you all again this year.

All proceeds will go to take care of the animals for the winter. So come join us, have fun, make memories, and be a blessing!

For years, we have talked about having a Festival of Lights at the Ranch. Well, thanks to the challenges of 2020 & 2021 we have finally made this dream a reality.  See?  Great things really can come from adversity.

The community has come together, donating supplies and decorations to help us make this happen. THANK YOU to everyone who so kindly donated and volunteered their time! We couldn’t have made it happen without you. Sincerely.

Our deepest gratitude to you all!
Please:  No RVs or buses.  There are some tight turns.  15 passenger vans are OK though.
