Eagle Scout Troop 426 is Hot!!!

Eagle Scout Troop 426 is Hot!!! Or at least they were Sat/Sun June 20 and 21 when they put a new roof on our storage garage at the Rainbow Ranch Project.   This  was the Eagle scout project for Nick Modglin of Troop 426.  Nick has a whole lot of good friends and family helping out.  This was a big job we have had other scouts, and 4 -H projects, but this was the hardest by far!  They were all so polite and cleaned up their mess and we appreciate all their hard work to help the animals!!!! Thank you Nick and Troop 426!!

Baby Hank

Meet Baby Hank

He was saved after being snatched from the jaws of a snapping turtle.

For many years the ranch had a wonderful goose here named Hank.  We all loved him.  Here he is pictured with his best friend, volunteer Chris Dalton.

After loosing Hank I never thought I would have another goose here.

Guess I was wrong!!!




Spenser the Macaw

In the wild, Blue and Gold Macaws live thirty to fifty years of age.  When properly cared for as pets, it’s not uncommon for them to live seventy-five and, on occasion all the way to one hundred years old.  Our friend, Spencer is fortunate to have made it to six years (just a baby) in the care of elderly hoarders.

Spencer had been given as a gift to an elderly couple, who kept everything, and cared for nothing.  The couple had already been moved into a nursing home.

When rescue was called in, the workers were advised to tuck their jeans inside their socks to help protect them from fleas, roaches and mice.

Spencer was found in his cage with at least a foot of filth and feces on top of his grate and more below.  His beak had grown in to a circle and he was very thin.

Spenser is now safe, but he will need quality medical care in order to enjoy a long, healthy life.

Your donation would certainly help.  To make a gift, please use the PayPal Button on our site.  Thank You In Advance, for Your Good Thoughts, and Financial Aid, if you are able.
