Testimonial: Volunteer Mia Bobenko


Here’s to 8 years of one of the greatest decisions I have ever made: becoming apart of the Gress Family. I’m beyond thankful for the experiences,people I have meet, and knowledge I have gained through volunteering at TGMR. I really have learned so much that will benefit me when it comes to my future as a Large Animal Veterinarian. Also, I don’t know what I would do with my animal brothers and sister. I love each and every single one of them with all of my heart. Thirdly, I’m thankful for the management skills I have learned through organizing volunteers for events such as OGFT and Ranch Camp. Lastly, I’m most grateful for the experience to pursue my dream to become an equestrian. 7 1/2 years of horseback riding has taught me so much about myself, the world around me and animals. Sassy will forever have a huge part of my heart and I’m so happy I was able to learn on her and transfer that knowledge to other horses, such as Cookie and Blue, and just continue to do what I love. I would be absolutely lost without Sassy. Thank you Kathryn Gress for everything you have done for me and continue to do for me. Proud to be a Gress family member. Happy 8 years!

The Gress Mountain Ranch is a sanctuary where abused and neglected animals are given life-long care to recover and thrive.
