All Adoptable Ranchers

Meet Jasmine, also known to us as Jazz! After a career on the track as a harness-racing standardbred, she found herself as a personal horse for a little girl. When her family could no longer care for her she came to us!

Jazz is a senior lady at 25 years young and best as a retired companion horse at this time. She is spunky for her age and would love a family to dote on her through her golden years!

Sweet Serenity is a stunning girl with her whole life ahead of her! At just 3 years old her racing career came to a halt due to a bowed tendon, but lucky for her, she had a trainer who wanted to be sure she ended up somewhere safe. When we were asked to take her in, we were excited to help!

Serenity is all healed up and has begun training under saddle! She just needs the right family to train her to be their dream horse!

Huey is one sweet, beautiful soul that is looking for his forever home! Huey is thought to be an Arabian/Quarter Horse mix who is now five years old. He was once a feral baby going through auction, unlikely to find a happy ending, but now he is a well socialized horse with a bright future ahead!

Huey is broke to ride walk/trot and has been briefly started at the canter, but will need an experienced rider to take him the rest of the way.

Orion may look familiar because this sweet boy is on his second stay with Wayward Ranch. After we saved him in 2018 from going to slaughter he was adopted, but sadly his family could not keep him and he has been returned to our care. 

Orion is a beautiful red roan who may be blind, but he has so much love to give and manages to get around extremely well, so much so that you'd never guess he couldn't see! He is broke to ride, but would also be happy as a companion horse!

Raymond has not been handled much in his life, so he will need a patient family to gain his trust, but he has such a gentle heart we know he will come around in no time!

Simba's story is all too common for potbelly pigs. Purchased from a breeder he began as an indoor pig, but when he grew too big, his family gave him away. He ended up at a greenhouse where he was kept in a tiny pen as a petting zoo attraction. When a family came to the greenhouse and saw how he was living there, they couldn't leave him behind and took him home until they could find a safe place for him. 

We've promised to find him a forever home, could that be with you?

This adorable pup is Clementine and she has a long journey ahead of her. She came to us off of the euthanasia list at the Brooklyn ACC when she began acting out due to kennel anxiety. When she arrived she was very shut down but day by day she came out a little more to show us her true personality. 

She is now ready to finally start looking for an adoptive home! She still has rehabilitation ahead of her, but with an experienced and dedicated family we know she will thrive!

Pegasus is the last kitten from her litter left looking for a forever home! She was born April 2021, and still has plenty of spunky kitten energy!

She is a bit timid when first meeting new people, but she will quickly come out of her shell for playtime. She would likely do well as a solo cat, but we'd also love for someone to want to adopt her along with her mother Myth, since they love each other so much!

Requested Adoption Donation: $150


Echo originally came to us as an owner surrender in 2020. She was a stoic beauty who found an adoptive home in no time. Unfortunately she returned to us recently because of behavioral concerns with her adoptive home. 

Echo has been under behavioral observation and we have decided she can be a candidate for adoption once again!

Requested Adoption Donation: $100


Momma Myth came to us from the NYC ACC after she arrived having recently given birth to five adorable kittens. She was timid and anxious in the shelter environment so we agreed to have her and the kittens come to us at Wayward Ranch.

Myth has finished raising her babies and we are hoping to find her a wonderful forever home she can join! She is quite timid and fearful so she will need a patient and understanding family.

Bugs Bunny is a very sweet, shy dutch rabbit who originally came to us from the NYC Animal Care Centers. We were able to neuter and adopt him out, but unfortunately his adoptive family could no longer keep him and Bugs has returned to our care.

Batman came to us with his triplet brothers, Robin and Joker, in August of 2018. Like many farm animals they were posted on Craigslist for rehoming, but luckily their previous owner genuinely cared about where they would end up and he was more than willing to have us take them and give them a safe home for life!

Batman is quite a climber and we'll often find him on top of his picnic table or flipped water trough. If you come in his pen with cashews, watch out because he'll want to climb right in your lap like a puppy!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Robin came to us with his brothers, Batman and Joker, from a small backyard farm where they were born and loved until they were 4 months old. Their owner then posted them for sale on Craigslist, which can be dangerous for farm animals as they may end slaughters or in abusive homes. They came to the Ranch so we could give them safe and happy lives!

Robin is the biggest of the brothers and loves to cuddle up to staff and volunteers. Sometimes he forgets what personal space is but we love him anyway!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Shinzi is the third brother of our permanent residents, the Three Wayward Pigs. Like his brothers, Ed and Bonzai, he was abandoned on a farm when his owner moved away and then was placed on Facebook for sale for just $20 by the new farm owner. He had the worst case of mange of all three brothers, but his coat grew in beautifully with proper care and time.

Shinzi learned quick that people = food and that was our way into his heart! Now he teaches all incoming pigs how to trust us to help them too!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


When we first met Ed he was almost completely hairless and covered nose to tail in terrible scabs. He was suffering from untreated mange and he was very skinny. He and his brothers, Shinzi and Bonzai, had been left behind when their owner moved and the new owner of the farm put them on Facebook for just $20 as if they were old furniture he no longer needed, rather than living beings.

Ed has thrived in our care since he arrived in 2017! He was once so fearful but now comes right up for treats, belly rubs, and loves visitors!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Bonzai was left behind when his owner sold the farm, and when the new owner came in he put him and his brothers, Ed and Shinzi, on Facebook for $20 as if their lives didn't matter. They all had a terrible case of manage from neglect and were emaciated, and we rushed to save them!

Bonzai since day one was terrified of us (who can blame him). Since his arrival in 2017 he has come a long way and now will take treats from our hands. Even if it has to be from afar, we will always love him so very much!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Montana, once known as Money Game, was a big winner as a racehorse, winning over $300,000 on the track. Then she went to a breeding farm to be used once again by people for money. This time, she stood up for herself and refused to be bred, making her useless to them. Right before she was to be sent to auction, she came to us instead and now calls the Ranch home!

Montana's past has made her slow to trust, but with our staff she has learned to love, and has a bright future ahead!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Tonto came to Wayward Ranch in the fall of 2018 when we saw him at a local livestock auction. He was with his sister, who immediately was bid on by a private buyer, but when it came time for people to bid on him, the room was silent. We were heartbroken to think he could end up in an abusive home, bounced around from auction to auction, or even sent to slaughter, so we bid on him and brought him home with us!

Tonto is a permanent resident here, 

helping to keep coyotes away from the farm animals and we love him dearly!

Permanent Sanctuary Resident

Tigue was one of the many fearful cats who find themselves on a euthanasia list each year. He was trapped as a feral cat, but was unable to be released into his old territory again. We saw his face, and knew he would rather be offered a life as a barn cat than be euthanized, and boy were we right!

On the Ranch, Tigue is king! This guy spends the day sleeping in the hay loft (his very own bachelor pad) and at night comes out to survey his vast land. He keeps our barn sanitary and free of rodents and we are grateful!

Brooklyn's life began normally, purchased by a loving family as a puppy. Sadly when her owner died months later, she had nowhere to go and was brought to a vet hospital. Because of her breed and fearful behavior they decided not to rehome her. For the next nine years she lived in a kennel run in the back of the hospital as a blood donor, until she came to Wayward Ranch in 2018.

After living with us for over 2 years we have made the decision to have her remain with us as a permanent sanctuary resident.

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Chewy was born at a respected breeding facility and purchased by a loving family with a big yard and plenty of kids to play with. He had the life most dogs in rescue could only dream of. Unfortunately for Chewy and his family, he has some genetic behavioral concerns that made him unsuitable for live in the average home. 

When Chewy first came to us, our hope was that he would be adoptable to a family without young children, but from what we have seen, we feel the most responsible decision would be for him to remain a permanent 

resident here.

Permanent Sanctuary Resident


Found as a stray at 3 weeks old, Poseidon came to us with his brothers, Hades and Zeus, after being found abandoned in a bag on the side of the road. All three were covered in ticks, fleas, and maggots and had broken tails.

While Hades and Zeus have done well and were adopted, Poseidon has struggled with a medical condition and it has been determined he will now be a permanent sanctuary 

resident so we can help manage his condition lifelong!
