What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Double D Bar Ranch relies upon volunteers; no one receives wages we greatly appreciate the volunteers’. We can not depend on those services since the farm has developed we’require at least three paid employees to feed, water, clean and to be aware of any medical attention. Sections of the farm property require updating concerning shelter for the cows, bulls, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, plus we lack farming equipment, our bobcat is not able to keep up with the demand is constantly requiring repair. Also, the 2001 Dodge pickup truck has over 250,000, miles constantly being repaired. Camera security system with sensor lights not working properly, been getting vandalized destroying farm equipment, opening animals gates.

The Double D Bar Ranch was set up to provide homes for neglected, abused farm animals. When we retired our plan and dream was to purchase a farm, and in September 1997 we did. When 4 acres of land adjoining to our property became available for sale in February 1999, we decided to buy it and set up a small riding arena. The former owner of the property had 50 animals he was going to slaughter.

We quickly discussed this and decided to buy the animals from him; we could afford within our budget to keep the 50 animals. When the community heard that we had improved the farm, we started to receive calls asking if we could shelter feed and care for their animals. We established as a 501(c)(3) organization now it's 20 years later, and we are caring from anywhere between 400 to 500 animals.

No-one at Double D Bar Ranch receives salaries since incorporating as a nonprofit organization in 2000 we have never earned enough funds to support Double D Bar Ranch it is our a mission to help and care for these neglected abuse farm animals will use our funds to ensure that they always feed sheltered and healthy.

You would never believe how many animals are destined for misery. Not long after we began rescuing animals from factory farms, livestock auctions and slaughterhouses, we realized there’s not enough space to house them all if we continue.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We have dedicated 2019 the year of soliciting grants, fundraising to operate sufficiently, we need to generate funds to feed, shelter, medical care, and salaries. To give Double D Bar Ranch the ability to provide these abused, neglected farm animals the life they deserve.

To begin an internship to empower young activists to expand and deepen their advocacy for animals by fostering their search for knowledge, autonomy, and creativity in a non-profit setting. We give sanctuary tours Saturday & Sundays programmed for the public. On tour, we tell the animals' individual stories, informing the community how to care for different kinds of farm animals.

We are recruiting more volunteers, too be involved in managing a successful non-profit: social media management, volunteer management, accounting, community outreach, event coordination, fundraising, and reporting.

Begin a monthly Educational class on how to care for farm animals, increase awareness in our sponsorship program sponsors help cover daily care costs like feed, bedding, on-going medications, and preventative veterinary care.

Upgrade portions of our farm we have been here for 20 years want to make the farm animals enjoy in peace the remaining years of their life.

Double D Bar Ranch was founded in 1999 to oppose the injustices of factory farming and support a new consciousness also perception about farm animals.

Today, Double D Bar Ranch farm animal rescue and shelter organization. We have saved hundreds of animals and cared for them at our shelters in Manorville N.Y. At Double D Bar Ranch, these animals are our friends, not our food.

We educate the community about their difficulty and the results of factory farming on our well-being and environment. We support concerning laws and procedures to prevent affliction and encourage compassion, and we reach out to lawmakers and companies to realize about institutional improvements. Double D Bar Ranch is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts.

Our team serves tirelessly to protect, teach and promote on the support of, and care concerning farm animals.

Over its 20-year history, Double D Bar Ranch succeeded in rescuing hundreds of animals from conditions of torture including abuse in factory farms and other situations they remain treated as products rather than the spirit, social creatures we know them to be. We have adopted out to loving, forever homes through our Farm Animal Adoption Program.

We have educated the community through our visitor education programs, humane education program, and extensive online presence.

It is essential that we increase information between main-stream people regarding the benefit of a plant-based food which refuses the use of farm animals for food, clothing and other products. It is the denial of certain products by users and the improved need for plant-based products that will make a change in the marketplace and will reduce these cruel methods. Double D Bar Ranch is beginning on a different awareness-raising crusade to increase and the plant-powered movement.
