This economy continues to take its toll on families in Deschutes County and especially their animals and livestock. The Deschutes County Rescue Ranch opened up two years ago and remains busy. Lt. Shane Nelson tells us what they see at the ranch: “We have had anywhere from emus, rabbits, goats, horses, cows and chickens at the facility so there is one of two ways an animal can go there. Either through a criminal case and we're doing a neglect investigation, we'll seize that animal so we can bring it back to health and monitor its progress." Lt. Shane Nelson says the other way an animal may end up there is if its lost or abandoned, and they try to find the owner or adopt it out. Sheriff's officials say the Rescue Ranch has been very busy in this economy as families struggle to put food on the table and their pets or livestock become one more burden for them. He says they are always happy to get donations of hay, tack or even cash to help with the Rescue Ranch.
