From our Founder
"As a young child, many summers as well as weekends, were spent at what is now the Yaqui Animal Rescue ranch. The ranch was owned by my grandparents and eventually sold off as the years went by.
About twenty years ago, I started doing what I could for all the stray animals.. vet care, food, finding homes, etc. The need seemed greater and greater. When the ranch became available again, in 2004, I was able to purchase it back for the sole purpose of eventually becoming a rescue for all the unwanted animals of the area. I've been rescuing animals since then and, with a little help, we can do great things for God's innocent creatures! The name 'Yaqui' was chosen for the ancestors of my incredible grandmother, the Yaqui Indians."
