Social Distance And Pet Adorable Animals At The GingerSnap Rescue Ranch In Colorado
Have you been searching high and low for something to do with the family that is as safe as it is unique? Due to social distancing guidelines, these kinds of activities can be hard to come by, which is why we were so excited to discover the unforgettable GingerSnap Rescue Ranch and petting zoo in Colorado:
Located in Colorado Springs, the GingerSnap Rescue Ranch is a non-profit farm that got its start in 2017 after its founders inherited a mini potbelly pig named Buddy.
Shortly after taking in Buddy, the newly-formed farm began rescuing other animals, many of which lost their homes in the devastating 117 Fire in 2018.
Officially designated as a non-profit in April 2020, the GingerSnap Rescue Ranch is on a mission to "provide farm animals who have been neglected, abandoned, or can no longer be cared for by their owners a forever home," which they do by partnering with the community, students, higher education institutions, and other various organizations.
When you visit GingerSnap, you will have the opportunity to learn not only more about these beautiful animals but also pet and play with them!
Before you visit the GingerSnap Rescue Ranch, you are asked to make an appointment, which allows for social distancing and a safe experience for everyone.

In addition to the petting zoo, the GingerSnap Rescue Ranch also offers opportunities to sponsor animals, as well as pony rides, special events, and a chance to get involved and make in difference in the lives of the 4-legged residents.
The GingerSnap Rescue Ranch is open every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
