Are you looking to visit Rescue Ranch?

We love having visitors come and learn more about Rescue Ranch, however, we do have some limitations at our current stage of development and do not want guests to be disappointed.  


Here are the current options to visit Rescue Ranch:

1.     Schedule a humane education program.

Education is at the core of everything we do and our humane education programs are the founding element of Rescue Ranch.   These programs provide hands-on experiential encounters for children of all ages.

2.     Come for a Rescue Ranch event.

We host a variety of events throughout the year to help us raise necessary dollars to continue our mission. 

Please note: not all events involve an opportunity to see our humane education animal ambassadors.

3.     Schedule a guided tour.

Rescue Ranch may not be like any animal facility that you have visited in the past, as we are not a facility where guests are able to see our animals without a Rescue Ranch representative.  We offer private tours that include at least 2 hands-on animal encounters inside our education facility and a bucket of feed for our outside animals.  Tours typically last an hour to an hour and a half and must be booked in advance. They are offered Monday-Friday with limited weekends available. Families also have access to the playground and our hiking trails at the end of the tour with signed waiver.  The cost is $20 for adults, $10 for children, under 2 are free.  Please call 704.768.0909 to schedule your tour. 


4.    Earnhardt Family Playground. (Opening to the public, January 2018).

Rescue Ranch is home to the only inclusive playground in Iredell County.  Our 10,000 sq/ft playground provides an opportunity for children of all abilities to play together. The playground is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am-3:30pm.  The cost is $3 per child.  Please check in at the front office when you arrive to get a wristband in order to play.

As our development continues, so will our opportunities to experience Rescue Ranch.  We thank you for your excitement, support and patience while we continue our growth.
