What is the problem?

There are many animals in shelters and rescues across the country with medical special needs. These animals cannot thrive in the traditional shelter environment as they require more hands-on daily care.

What is our solution?

Wayward Ranch has always been committed to the underdog and these animals with medical special needs definitely fit that definition. We find these animals in local shelters and rescues as well as local veterinary hospitals and bring them into medical foster programs. We then are able to medically treat their needs, however severe and determine if the animal is a candidate to be adopted out to a family or if they are a hospice case. If an animal's medical needs are so severe they are a hospice case, they will live with us for the remainder of their life.  

What animals are helped by this program?

The following types of animals are most helped by this program: 

  • Animals with severe, but curable medical conditions

  • Animals with severe, but manageable medical conditions. 

  • Animals with severe medical conditions that cannot be cured or managed. 

How do donations help us to continue this program?

Your donations to this program will go towards providing veterinary care to animals with severe medical conditions as well as the daily food, enrichment and care they require to be most comfortable in their foster homes.
