Award based on Outstanding Online Reviews 

Zuma’s Rescue Ranch announces it has been named a “2020 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews of charities and nonprofits. 

Zuma’s Rescue Ranch provides therapy sessions implementing rescued farm animals in Littleton, resulting in more animals having safe lives and humans that create bonding skills.  

“We are honored to be named a 2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Executive Director Jodi Messenich. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including the ability to continue to offer our services during such an incredibly challenging year, knowing that our herd of therapy animals is assisting even more community members than before.” 

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Zuma’s Rescue Ranch received from volunteers, donors and aid recipients. “As an animal lover, it means so much to me how compassionate Zuma’s is towards [sic] rescuing and caring for their horses. I have witnessed first-hand the amount of thought and effort behind everything they do to provide the best possible life for their herd,” says reviewer cneal1. “I am excited to continue learning through the knowledge and experience shared by the staff as well as the various education programs offered at the ranch. Being around horses has such a therapeutic effect that has been especially beneficial throughout the pandemic. I am grateful to have found a place to volunteer that aligns with my passions.”
