About Us

Crooked Leg Ranch is a non-profit animal rescue group that started operation in 2009. Every year Crooked Leg Ranch assists hundreds of animals through our adoption, transfer, sterilization, food bank, and education programs. There are also some animals who are permanent residents of the ranch sanctuary due to serious medical conditions or because they aren’t physically or behaviourally fit for adoption.

To assist with the pet overpopulation problem that plagues British Columbia’s Northern communities; Crooked Leg Ranch also has a low income Spay and Neuter program where it assists Low Income Quesnel Residents in getting their animals spayed and neutered. We have also partnered with other animal rescue groups and assist several First Nation Communities, in developing Community Wellness Programs that focus on providing medical treatment, vaccinations, sterilization, and animal welfare education.

We work hard to make sure that all the money we raise through our frequent fundraising events or donation made by the public, goes directly to the animals in our care. This means that there are no paid employees at the Crooked Leg Ranch, only volunteers. There are, however, numerous bills for vet services and medication, food and supplies, and we are in constant need of funds.

Crooked Leg Ranch is a registered charity. We are happy to day that we can issue tax receipts.
