Parking:  Please park on the ranch side of English Road.

How Do I Find the Orientation?  Walk through the Red Bucket Ranch entrance. The Visitor’s Center is in the first barn, directly ahead of the entrance.

What if I Can’t Find the Orientation?  Look for a person in a red shirt and ask, “Where is the Red Bucket orientation?” or, “Where is the Red Bucket Visitor’s Center located?”

Do I Need to Bring Anything With Me?  First and most important, bring a copy of your Release of Liability Form and Volunteer Agreement. Remember, you MUST complete the application form before attending an orientation!

In addition, there is always something at the Ranch that we need. Please check out our Wish List to see if there is anything you can help us out with. Or join our “Drop in the Bucket” Campaign. Just a drop in the bucket for you… could make all the difference to us!  Join us in the fight to save slaughter-bound, abused, abandoned and neglected horses! Our goal is to round up 5,000 supporters who will donate a mere $5.00 per month so we can continue to do our meaningful work!
