Our organization is named in honor of the first horse our founders, The Messenich Family, purchased together nearly 20 years ago. Zuma was a bright spirit – a truly once in a lifetime horse who forever changed the hearts and minds of some very experienced professional horsepeople. By partnering those in need so that they may in turn rescue each other, we honor Zuma’s legacy. Serving the community since 2008, the mission of Zuma’s Rescue Ranch is to foster an environment of healing by pairing rescued horses with at-risk youth in mutually therapeutic programs.


Our mission and vision could not become a reality without the support of a dedicated team of employees and volunteers.


Zuma’s Rescue Ranch has been recognized as one of Colorado’s leading rescue and advocacy centers and has received numerous grants and awards that facilitate our mission.


From being featured on The Today Show to communicating our mission to the community on Denver’s Channel 7 News, the story of Zuma’s Rescue Ranch is continually touching hearts and impacting lives around the world. Here are some highlights and happenings for you to explore.
