The 505 Ranch is an IRS authorized 501(c)3 charity horse rescue ranch headquartered about 25 miles north of Sierra Blanca, Texas which is aproximately 100 miles east of El Paso, Texas. On the 15th Day of September 2017 the 505 Horse Rescue and Retirement Ranch in Sierra Blanca, Texas merged with the Rockport Horse Rescue in Rockport, Texas which now gives them 501(c)3 status. This also gives Rockport the necessary time to focus on rebuilding after the recent destructive Hurricane Harvey damage. The same great people will still be offering their same great services. The only noticable difference will be a name change to 505 Horse Rescue and Retirement Ranch, Rockport Facility.

We are a no-kill, not for profit organization dedicated to providing emergency relief, shelter, care, rehabilitation, and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses and other equine. We are dedicated to providing unwanted animals with a safe and nurturing environment while they heal physically, mentally and emotionally from situations of abandonment, neglect and/or abuse. Our adoption process focuses on appropriately matching animals and humans for lifelong, successful partnerships.

Our mission is to save as many victims of the equine world as we possibly can. We provide care for abused, abandoned, neglected, aged and unwanted animals or those animals that can no longer be cared for by their owners for whatever reason. We accept them in any condition and do everything in our power to provide the needed care and facilities they so desperately deserve.
