Welcome to Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch!
Located at Strong Stables we are a rescue and re-home equine program. We also offer boarding, horse sponsorshipand lessons. The love of horses has brought us together to form an organization that has the simple goal of rehabilitating horses and helping them rejoin the community with a new job.
OUR PROGRAM CORRESPONDS WITH OUR PHILOSOPHY THAT EACH AND EVERY HORSE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE.
OFTEN HORSES COME TO US FROM THE COMMUNITY FOR THEIR SECOND CHANCE. WE DEVOTE A LOT OF TIME INTO IDENTIFYING EACH SPECIFIC HORSE'S ABILITIES AND AIDING THEM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE, SO THAT THEY MAY LIVE A HEALTHY AND MEANINGFUL LIFE.
SONOMA/NAPA COUNTY FIRESTORMS
OUR COUNTY ALONG WITH NAPA AND SEVERAL OTHERS ARE ENDURING THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE EVER FACED BY CALIFORNIA. SEVERAL FIRES HAVE CAUSED THE NEED FOR RAPID AND A DEVASTATING AMOUNT OF HUMAN AND EQUINE EVACUATIONS. WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
Here at S2CR we have opened our doors to a total of 5 evacuated horses. We responded to the need and sent our trailer out to aide in local rescue efforts. We are proud to be part of a community that has pulled together in such a touching and profound way. People have lost their own homes and have continued to help others.
Due to air quality our horses's got to rest. they are now back to normal work. We are happy to help and hope our refugees will get to go back to a safe home soon. We expect they will all be home by October 22. We loved having them and are happy they to go back to their home barns. We wish them well!

Located at Strong Stables in Petaluma California, Strong's 2nd Chance Ranch is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of horses. The goal is to identify a suitable life for each horse. We believe that they are all individuals capable of many things, but are happier in the right circumstance. Often horses come to us injured or simply unable to perform at the level their owners had hoped. We devise and begin an individual restorative program as soon as they come to us. With the aid of farriers and vets, we devise a systematic plan of care that enables the horse to thrive in a new career. They get their 2nd chance!
