Littlegrass Ranch, Inc.’s Mission Statement, from their website, by permission:

Of the women who go to shelters, an astounding 83% of them report that their abuser had either harmed or killed the family pets. However, out of the 1500 women’s shelters in the US, fewer than 100 accept the pets belonging to victims of domestic abuse.

There are at least a million women that no shelter has ever considered. Those women are horsewomen – barrel racers, dressage riders, working cowgirls, breeders, trainers and those women whose horses are family. They are also victims of domestic violence, and most likely their horses and other animals are too. Littlegrass Ranch is the first organization to focus on keeping horsewomen and their horses together. Our mission is to create a space to offer sanctuary and support for horsewomen and their horses as well.
