A Bit About Us

Our Team


 Ron and Lorelei Pulliam are the propietors of Gallastar Equine Center and Ranger's Refuge at Gallastar. We also rely on dedicated volunteers- if you'd like to join us, we'd love to hear from you! 

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.
