A Final Refuge for
Special Needs and
Abandoned Companion Animals
ALLPETSNEEDLOVE to 53-555
No pet should die alone or in a shelter.
We provide a final refuge and loving home to companion animals
We rescue the pets no one else wants
We are a unique sanctuary...
Our residents live out the rest of their natural lives here on the ranch.
They have been through enough trauma and now it is time for them to relax and enjoy their lives!
Most of our residents have special needs and ongoing medical issues
From allergies to diabetes we provide ongoing care to our residents as their last forever home.

The sanctuary is located in Eastern Washington
with 30 acres
of beautiful wooded forests
and pasture land
We rescue companion animals that no one else wants.
The elderly, special needs, or abandoned pets come to our ranch
to live out the rest of their natural life as part of the family.
There are no cages, kennels or pens.
Resident animals are free to explore the 2 acre grassy park area with fruit trees, maples, ornamental crabapples, a riverbed, vibrant flower gardens, raspberry field, or lounge on the massive deck overlooking the trees.
The safety of our residents is enforced with an 8 foot security fence
to keep predators out.
Horses roam over 25 acres of pasture and wooded land.
We do not offer adoptions.
Our residents have been through enough trauma
and this is their final refuge
It all started in 1987 with rescuing a severely abused,
one-eyed cat named Natalie
Our dream to help more animals became a reality when we launched
Painted Rain Ranch non-profit in 2021
We lovingly provide medication, treatments, and therapy
to those who do not have a family or loving home.
Big or small, we love them all as our own.
We will continue this legacy of
no pet dying alone
or in a shelter
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue to provide a loving final refuge and necessary vet care to these deserving companion animals.
