Exciting News!

In just 24 hours, we said goodbye two two of our friends here, Ziggy & Oscar who have relocated to their forever home, and hello to two NEW friends, Wendall & Dodge! 

Both pairs have already settled into their new homes!

Wendall and Dodge are playful, curious,and have already stolen our hearts with their funny antics and heartwarming bond. We can't wait to watch them thrive and provide them with all the love and care they deserve.

We are the proud recipients of a Douglas County Community Foundation(DCCF) Grant for mental health.

We are so delighted to be a recipient of a $1,000 DCCF grant for mental health. We will use this money wisely towards a peaceful, supportive environment for our animals, wonderful volunteers, and visitors from our community. Our animals are such great supporters of mental health as they relieve stress and provide comfort. We look forward to seeing how impactful this will be on both our community and animals and we thank Douglas County Community Foundation for choosing us! Stay tuned for a detailed presentation of how this grant has made a demonstrable and impactful positive difference in Douglas County.

A loving, caring visitor.

Our dear friend Louise came here to visit our Rescue. She fell in love with Hercules, our bigger horse. She was able to laugh and love on this horse, relieving stress and providing comfort. It is so amazing to see animal-loving people showing up here at our rescue and loving on our animals. We thank Louise for her time and welcoming character. We hope to see her again soon!


Thank you Girl Scout Troop 65409 for all that you did here!


Thank you to Meredith Wortzel for organizing her Girl Scout Troop 65409! We thank them for creating many motivational and colorful signs, helpful labels, and some amazing paintings!  It is astounding to walk around with all of these new decorations. Our volunteers can enjoy this new, more organized environment that the Girl Scouts created! On top of their contributions, they were also joyful workers and they even brought some feed for the animals! You guys were amazing and we hope to see you all again soon!

Thank you to all of our hardworking volunteers!


Our volunteers are amazing! This group alone cleaned up all of the manure build-up around our feeders, filling the manure spreader twice! Thanks to their hard work our llamas, goats, and horses can walk around clean ground and eat with ease. Thank you to them and all of our other volunteers, we appreciate all of your hard work! 

Bucky Update


Bucky was one of our loving animals here at Edwards Foundation for Rescued Animals. Although it is so sad to see him go, we know that he lived a happy, full, and loved life. He passed peacefully June 21st, 2023. As we continue to take care of our animals here, we will always have a special place in our hearts for Bucky, our friendly, happy little goat. We will miss him.
