Purpose Ranch began in January of 2009. In it's five year run, we helped hundreds of horses and at least 200 families. We were forced to close the barn doors in August of 2013. Not enough funding to support our overhead and 14 horses... All 14 horses found awesome homes (none were put down!) even with their average age being 18 years old and a multitude of care details being required by many of them. Thank you to EVERYONE who stepped up and helped with this effort. We have officially dissolved and closed the books on Purpose Ranch as of August 2014. Our assests have been transferred to Sammie's Friends (no debts). Please join us in supporting their efforts in Nevada County to continue to help the horses. Thank you.
