Second Chance Ranch strives to make an impact on the lives of horses and their owners in our community through direct intervention, education, and community outreach. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue organization, Second Chance Ranch (SCR) specializes in the rehabilitation, transition training and adoption services of Thoroughbred race horses from the racetrack into second careers. SCR assists these magnificent athletes transition into a new careers, rehabilitate from minor injuries, or find their permanent retirement home. Also welcomed into our program are thoroughbreds rescued from auctions and feedlots. We are proud to have been chosen as the retirement home of Washington champions such as Longacres Mile winners, The Great Face and No Giveaway, as well as Flying Notes, and many other NW favorites!
Within our mission, SCR extends its services to serve the local residents with our Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT) program. Equine-assisted mental health and social rehabilitation is used in the treatment of emotional, behavioral, and workplace environment issues, and those living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We also offer a lesson program for home-schooling associations as a venue of social activity and humane education.
As an independent rescue organization, Second Chance Ranch’s primary funding comes from grants, private donations and fundraisers. Using earned, donated and volunteer resources, SCR has established a record of successful rehabilitating, adoptions, and providing our greater community with education and outreach resources, while effecting policy change. Second Chance Ranch depends on the support and generosity of the public to continue our mission.
Let the HAYING begin! First time in 10 years western WA has done their first cutting beginning of May! Summer months are when we can save significantly on our hay cost by purchasing round bales and local cut hay. One of our main hay suppliers put up a field of absolutely gorgeous Timothy/Grass hay last week with the stretch of sun we had. The next cutting should be in just a few weeks provided the expected dry weather returns.
PLEASE DONATE NOW TO THE HAY FUND! We need your help to purchase the hay right out of the field - it goes really fast!
