TGMR is a little window of heaven in a busy world

entrance-for-tgmrThe Gress Mountain Ranch is a 501(c)(3) that serves as a sanctuary (“forever home”) for abused and neglected animals, both domestic and exotic.

The ranch is home to more than 85 animals that are utilized to provide therapy, education and volunteerism opportunities to disabled, at-risk, low-income and under-served populations.

The mission of the organization is to foster the mutual well-being of both people and animals by intertwining their lives through nurturing, learning, fun, and healing.
