an adoption and retirement home for dogs and cats





As a very small rescue, we are always in dire need of cash, animal supplies, and volunteers. While we  recover some expenses through adoptions, most of our residents are not adoptable. In 2004, for example, we spent $15,000.00 on veterinary expenses, in addition to all of the day-to-day expenses of feeding and caring for the beloved animals.

As of March 24, 2005, we are a registered 501(c) 3 organization.  All of your donations are tax deductible within the Internal Revenue Service regulations.  If you have questions about tax allowances, please contact your accountant or the Internal Revenue Service.  We'll gladly provide you our 501(c) 3 registration number, if you need it.

If your heart is moved, and you love animals as much as we do, please consider ~

                  Mail to: Rainbow Ranch
PO Box 685

      Please contact us by e-mail ( or phone (352-680-1707)
    for any necessary tax numbers and data that your attorney may require. 

PLEASE REMEMBER ~~ you will be helping an animal in need, and your donations are tax deductible according to the IRS regulations!

Rainbow Angels

As a Rainbow Angel, you may specify a particular animal to sponsor.  We will send you, at least quarterly, updates and photos of your fur-friend, along with a certificate naming you as that dog or cat's Angel. 

To be an Angel, please send a quarterly donation for your fur-friend in  whatever amount you can. Any monies you send will be used specifically for your fur-friend. A special need right now is for Henry, the English Setter, who is undergoing Heartworm Disease treatment costing about $400.00. Henry needs lots of Angels!


Rainbow Volunteers

If you live in or near Marion County, Florida, and would like to volunteer, we would love to hear from you. If you are under eighteen years of age, a parent's signed permission is required. 

Please call 352-680-1707 anytime, except at the doggy dinner hour around 5:00 p.m.   Or, email us at:  - there are so many things to do, and you have so many talents, that we will match our needs to what you wish to do to help! 

Thank you!!!!!
