Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch

Our Adoptable Pet List


Who We Are

The Utopia Rescue Ranch is a 501 c 3 non profit organization that primarily rescues dogs. The ranch was co-founded in 1998 by Kinky Friedman, Nancy Parker-Simons and Tony Simons. It is located between Kerville and Medina, Texas. We are a "never kill" animal sanctuary, and our mission is to rescue every animal that we can. When we rescue the dogs (most from being euthanized at the local shelter) they are first taken to one of our veterinarians, given a full check up, and treated for any ailments. They receive their shots and then spayed or neutered. After a clean bill of health the dogs finally get to come to our rescue ranch. To date we have rescued over 1000 animals, and found good loving homes for them. Our main adoption requirements are a fenced yard and super people. We do not have a standard fee to adopt one of our dogs but donations are greatly appreciated and needed.
