Mission Statement

The Gress Mountain Ranch embodies the healthy interdependence of humans and animals, and models this environment for the larger community. Abused and neglected animals are given life-long care to recover and thrive. Based on their emotional, cognitive, and social needs, humans are guided in their interaction with the animals, and when they leave the Ranch, take with them experiences that increase self-worth, healthy interdependence, and emotional well-being.


The Gress Mountain Ranch is a non-profit animal sanctuary for large, small, and exotic animals and is dedicated to educating and helping both people and animals who have been victims of abuse, neglect, and the unwanted aftereffects.

The ranch located in Orefield, Pennsylvania on a beautiful 15 acre hilly tract situated on the 2nd highest point in the Lehigh Valley. It is certified by National Wildlife Federation as a "wildlife habitat" and is currently a forever home to over 40 animals.

The owners are wonderful people who take caring for the animals very seriously. There are a variety of tasks to do, so it is never boring (such as feeding and watering the animals as well as mucking out stalls, and spending time with the animals to help them rehabilitate). You are responsible for the rehabilitation of the animals, so it is always important to treat them with respect and kindness! Volunteering for The Gress Mountain Ranch is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
