West Star Ranch Expansion

$1,575 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 9 months
West Star Ranch is now the largest private no-kill animal rescue in Southern Nye County.  Unlike the County shelter, the Ranch receives no government grants or support.  However, animals are coming to West Star in large numbers because of our no-kill policy and solid reputation for serving our community since 1995. 

We've decided that in order to house the additional animals in need, we must replace our Thrift Store, which provides much of the funding to feed and care for our dogs and cats.     All of the funds generated by the Store go directly to the dogs and cats who make the Ranch their temporary (or sometimes forever) home.

We have created this page hoping to raise money  to fund the changes required to enable the Ranch to care for more animals in need.   Your help is sincerely appreciated!

One of the many things that makes West Star special is that the Ranch is home to many animals who probably won't be adopted -- usually because the level of abuse they've suffered has left them unable to socialize, and they're just not able to trust enough to be re-homed. Our dedicated volunteers give their love and time working with these critters and in the process, develop some very special relationships with these critters. Here, Cooper shares some special time with her favorite human! Our Thrift Store upgrade will hopefully allow us to continue this work, and take in more animals who need sanctuary, kindness and love.

Work continues on upgrading the Ranch - last weekend, we had a crew of 10 helping cut down trees, repair pens and move storage buildings and fences. The process of permitting the move through the State and County has proven both expensive and daunting, but we are committed to see this through so that we can accommodate and care for the homeless animals in our area. We appreciate both your donations of time and funds. Stay tuned for more updates!

As we inch our way towards getting the myriad of permits, and the funds necessary to upgrade our facilities, our most important priority is, as always, the welfare of our dogs and cats. With the extreme heat bearing down, it is more important than ever that we keep our animals as cool and comfortable as possible. This means buying pools, building new shade structures, and extra volunteer hours to make sure everyone is OK. Nothing fancy, but essential to the animals who depend on West Star for food, shelter and love. Remember, we NEVER put an animal down if it isn't adopted. Like Cooper and Pizza, many of our dogs and cats live out their lives at the Ranch, with as much happiness and dignity as we are able to provide. Thank you for your support!

Our work continues to prepare for the changes at the Ranch! We're clearing out, cleaning up, and preparing to make room for the new building! Charlie, a rescue from down South, needs our help in finding a home!
