Our Mission

Ranger’s Reach is on a mission to end the cycle of homeless, abused, and neglected animals. Our community and networking are essential, education is fundamental, and our actions will inspire.

Our Purpose

Ranger’s Reach is a passionate group of people whose goal is to protect and take care of animals through education, advocacy, resources, rescue/adoption, and community outreach.

Raising awareness and being involved in our community to promote good pet ownership through spay/neuter programs to end the suffering and overpopulation of unwanted animals, and to help keep animals out of the shelter and in homes. 

Building relationships with shelters, rescues and our community to assist with daily needs of food, vaccines, monthly preventatives, microchipping, and unforeseen expenses. 

Developing a network of supporters, sponsors, volunteers, fosters, veterinarians, donors, and transporters who are dedicated to work together as one to save as many animals and end the tragic situation so many endure daily in our area.

Continually bringing homeless pets into the hearts and minds of people in such a powerful way that neglect, homelessness, and killing of companion animals becomes completely unacceptable.

Ranger's Story

Ranger came to us as a foster through one of the rescues we worked with, foster # 67 for us.

He was severely emaciated, malnourished, and heart worm positive with a fractured pelvis.


He was found with his brother, Gunner, by county animal control in a ditch huddled together. The county shelter they were in is no place for any’s a death sentence for most.  Having no social media outreach, only rescues allowed to pull animals, and 72 hours to survive... dogs must keep their paws crossed the right rescue comes along and saves their lives.

Gunner always overshadowed Ranger with his big, in your face, goofy personality. Ranger was shy and stayed in the background. Once Gunner was sent to the Pacific Northwest, Ranger became a different dog; he had a personality, he was goofy, he was playful, he was so loved!

His smile was infectious!

Ranger had more complications than we knew about. He had a ruptured diaphragm, one lung working at 30%, the other filled with fluid, liver in his chest cavity, not to mention late stages of heartworm disease. 


We lost Ranger during surgery on May 16, 2018. 

Ranger came into our lives and changed us forever, he will always be with us.  


We save dogs in his honor.
