Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Where is the Rescue Ranch?
The Rescue Ranch
is located on the outskirts of a suburb just north of Houston, Texas.It is not an animal shelter and we cannot take in animals
from the public. We are simply a foster station for animals who need to be rehabilitated before they are adopted. We can only
help a very limited number of animals at a time, since special needs animals require a lot of time, attention and funds.
Can we visit the Rescue Ranch?
Very rarely, a visit to the Rescue Ranch
is granted--not because we don't want to share and show-off our wonderful animals but for two reasons. First, we need
to keep the disease exposure to a minimum, especially for newborns and for very sick animals. Every visitor carries
with them anything their own animals may have as well as everywhere they have recently walked. Second, the Rescue Ranch
is a very peaceful place. This is necessary for healing. When visitors come, all of the animals get excited and
start barking, making peace--and being able to have a conversation--a long-forgotten memory.
Can we sponsor an animal at the Rescue Ranch?
Yes, in fact we encourage
it. People who cannot have pets or who cannot rescue animals themselves, sometimes "adopt" an animal here
and send monthly care packages and gifts for their care. Some animals get letters from children, clothing, treats, gift
cards...We greatly appreciate this and send them photos back in return when they receive their packages as long as we have
an email address on file.
Can we adopt
an animal at the Rescue Ranch?
All of the animals are currently not adoptable. Their medical needs
and or limitations are too great.
How can we help?
Thinking of ways to spread the website URL www.hopeformany.com so we can reach more people with our efforts would
be greatly appreciated. Having a collection of treats, food, supplies, funds would all be great ways to help!
Do you have favorite animals at the Rescue Ranch?
After about two weeks
of being here, each animal seems like our own. As we get to know them and care for them, take care of their puppies
or their wounds (emotional or physical), they become endeared to us--and become our favorites. We find that love has
no boundaries--we can love them all.
