The donkeys and horses that arrive here become permanent residents and part of our family. Our facility is for unadoptable equines, or equines endowed to us on condition of permanent resident status. This means that every animal remains with us for life.

Deep in a scenic canyon in rural Kanab, Utah, Perseverance Ranch is home to
donkeys, horses and other animals rescued from abuse, abandonment and slaughter.

We would like to give BROOKE USA a huge shout-out in appreciation and gratitude for their generous grant. It paid three veterinarian bills for our rescue donkeys. Thank you for your work to help improve the health, welfare and productivity of donkeys, mules and horses worldwide.

Our Equine Family

Who We Are

Perseverance Ranch began as a dream for two couples who wanted to develop adjoining 20-acre ranches for eventual retirement. As happens, one couple changed plans, and so we bought that couples’ 20 acres. Sadly, a neighbor also passed suddenly and his adjoining 40 acres were purchased from his estate, making Perseverance Ranch an 82-acre facility nestled in its own box canyon, with deer, bald eagles, golden eagles, and other assorted wildlife as welcome seasonal transients.
