Welcome to Dust Devil Ranch

Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary for Horses is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established to prevent cruelty to animals through rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement of abused and starving horses. The sanctuary is located in Cedar City, Utah where we assist in placement and transport of horses throughout the United States. We work with local law enforcement, animal control, veterinarians and other rescue groups such as Best Friends Animal Society in Southern Utah, HSUS, ASPCA and Days End Farm Horse Rescue.

Hope for Tomorrow

“Rescuing horses will tear your heart out… stomp on it… bury it where you never think you will find it. Then along comes another horse that digs it up and gives it back to you. Rescue animals aren’t broken. They’ve simply experienced more life than other animals. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write… the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity them. Do something. Help us rescue. Donate. Volunteer. Foster. Adopt. And be proud to have their greatness by your side.”

Adoptable Horses

Horse adoption is the ultimate goal for every horse that arrives here at Dust Devil Ranch. The horses that are able to reach good health again are put up for adoption, which means we look for permanent, loving homes so they may enjoy all the love and good care they deserve.

In some cases, a horse isn’t able to recover due to the severity of their injury, a health condition, or advanced age, making them a poor candidate for adoption. When this happens, these horses will live out their lives here at the sanctuary.

Currently, there are no horses available for adoption. All those in our care have special needs and are not candidates for adoption.

Although the current herd of horses in our care are not adoptable, they still require feed, supplements, farrier services, veterinary care, grooming and stabling.

Because feed is their biggest need, we invite your donation to keep the hay barn stocked with nutritious feed for them.
