TGMR is a little window of heaven in a busy world

entrance-for-tgmrSet on 15 beautiful acres in Orefield, PA, the ranch is a permanent home for over 50 animals rescued from abuse or neglect. For many sanctuaries, this would be the end of the mission. But TGMR takes the rescuing one step further. The animals are trained and socialized to become co-therapists for people suffering from emotional or mental trauma. In essence, the animals, who were once unwanted, find a new life by helping others.

The Gress Mountain Ranch is a sanctuary where abused and neglected animals are given life-long care to recover and thrive. In turn, the animals become therapy animals and have a big job to help people learn to improve their self-worth, communication skills, and learn respect for all livings beings.
