First, Cajun Needed a Home

This past week, we welcomed Cajun, a beautiful 28 year old mare, to our sanctuary. Her guardian unfortunately couldn't afford to feed or care for her, as she had medical issues and expenses of her own. So, she surrendered her cherished horse to us.

Now, She Needs a Sponsor

Will you be the kind soul to help us pay Cajun's medical & feed expenses? In the upcoming weeks, she is going to need more senior feed, good hay, dewormer, vaccinations, her hooves trimmed, & her teeth floated. Please help us keep our promise to her guardian– become Cajun's sponsor today!

Our History


 Since 1994, Gallastar and Ranger's Refuge have been a center for therapeutic horseback riding and animal rescue that has specialized in serving young people with cognitive and emotional difficulties. 

Our Mission


 Ranger's Refuge is the animal sanctuary arm of Gallastar Equine Center, Inc. With a main focus on pigs, it is currently home to almost 200 animals.  We aim to give each and every one of them forever homes, and to build a future where no animal is ever brought into the world to be unwanted or exploited. 

Ranger the Easter Pig

This is a story of a friend, Ranger the pig, who found his way to us Easter of 1990 and fulfilled a promise from long ago and changed our lives. Watch this video to learn about the origins of Ranger's Refuge and the start to our sanctuary for all living beings.
