Sponsorship FAQs

We are delighted that you are considering sponsoring an animal at HIdden Hills Ranch.  Your compassion means so much to rescued animals. Below are some answers to frequently asked questions about sponsorship gifts.


What is a sponsorship gift?

A sponsorship gift is a one-time gift of at least $25 made in honor of an animal at Hidden Hills Ranch. You can sponsor an animal in your own name, or as a gift for someone else.


What does my sponsorship go toward?

Sponsorship gifts support the work of Hidden Hills Ranch. Each and every day, children find solace, comfort, and joy being with our rescue animals. Your gift helps to keep these animals fed and cared for in this educational center to bring unconditional love and compassion to visitors every day. In order to make sure that your gift has the greatest impact, its use will not be restricted to the individual care of your sponsored animal, but wherever it is needed most.


Which animals can I sponsor?

Visit our featured sponsored animals to meet the featured animals available to be sponsored. But you can actually choose any animal at Hidden Hills Ranch! You can meet more of them on our  website.


Can I have a card sent to my gift recipient?


E-cards and printable cards are available online when you make a sponsorship gift. Mailed cards sent by Hidden Hills Ranch are available.  Just email us at info@hiddenhillsranch.org.  Cards are available for a limited time only.  Holiday gifts must be made prior to Dec.21 in order to have a gift card arrive by Dec.24th.


I want an update about my animal. Is that possible?

Because our caregivers are very busy providing daily care for the approximately 80 animals who are living at the ranch, they are not able to provide updates-on-demand for sponsored animals. However, you can stay in touch with all that’s going on at the ranch by visiting the Ranch Stories page on our website (coming up soon). Have an idea for a story you’d like to see there? Send your idea to info@hiddenhillsranch.org


How else can I help my sponsored animal?

Yes! Sharing your animal’s story and is one of the best things you can do for your sponsored animal. Sharing their profile on social media is a great idea.


Can I make a monthly sponsorship gift? Sponsorship gifts are one-time gifts only. If you’d like to help the animals year-round, contact us at info@hiddenhillsranch.org to make arrangements for monthly payments.
