Animal welfare organization located in Statesville, NC

Formed in 2012 on 87 acres in Statesville, North Carolina, Rescue Ranch is a 501c3 non-profit animal welfare organization co-founded by Krissie Newman and NASCAR driver Ryan Newman. We are a humane education center that provides sanctuary and permanent residency to more than 80 rescued animals. These animals all have a story to share as they came to the Ranch from situations like neglect, hoarding, or owner surrender. They are affectionately known as Rescue Ranch’s animal ambassadors; and are an integral component of our humane education programs. Our educational programs incorporate hands-on learning to support our mission of promoting compassion and respect for all animals.
