Oscar’s Place is not open to the public.  We do welcome scheduled visits from donors, volunteers and/or potential adopters.  Please email to set up your visit.  We cannot accommodate visitors that show up unannounced without signing the proper waivers. 

While Oscar's Place is not open to the public, we do invite first time volunteers, Guardians (monthly supporters), and potential adopters to tour the ranch.  For liability reasons and because we are a sanctuary where animals are recovering from abuse we do not allow anyone under the age of 12 or dogs on property.


If you are interested in volunteering

In order to be a volunteer, you must commit to regular scheduled visits. Our volunteer program is “hands on donkey.” The only way to help these animals recover from what they have been through and learn to trust humans again, is to patiently & lovingly show them that we are only here to help them.
