On a scenic parcel nestled at the base of the foothills at the edge of Chatfield State Park, healing is happening.
Happy Dog Ranch began as a sanctuary for unwanted horses. And that is still very much part of the mission. With 53 grassy acres to roam, Happy Dog is a place where horses thrive.
In addition to the 40-horse herd, alpacas, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks and a steer all call Happy Dog Ranch home, and the animals provide a unique learning tool for those who enter the gates.
