Vegan Food Policy at the Ranch - what does that mean?

Jameson Humane is a rescue and sanctuary for all domestic animals – farmed and companion. As such, it is incongruent to our mission to rescue some animals while serving others as food. Because of this, it is Jameson's policy to only allow vegan (plant-based) food on the premises at our ranch facility. We recognize that not all of Jameson staff and volunteers follow vegan diets, but to be consistent with our mission, Jameson asks its staff, volunteers and visitors to only consume vegan food products at the ranch facility.

What does vegan mean?

Vegan – a person who seeks to exclude all forms of animal cruelty and exploitation from their lifestyle including food, clothing, entertainment and other purposes.

Vegan foods are those that contain no forms of meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, dairy products, honey or animal byproducts such as gelatin, rennet, and whey.

I’m interested to know more about a plant-based diet. Where can I find information?

Please visit our resource page to find tips, recipes and more information on how to switch to and follow a plant-based diet.

Are we accepting animals at the ranch? Can people drop them off?

No. Our policy with regards to accepting animals into our program will remain the same. Any persons wishing to surrender their cats or dogs to Jameson Humane will need to contact our Community Animal Assistance Program Manager, Amanda Vollstedt at amanda@jamesonrescueranch.org and Monica Stevens for any farmed animals and horses, monica@jamesonrescueranch.org. By law we are unable to accept stray dogs or cats; any stray’s found need to be taken to the Napa County Shelter in case their humans are missing them!

Does Jameson Humane have its own veterinary hospital?

Jameson does not have it's own veterinary hospital, but we do have a grant program which can sometimes assist with veterinary visits, and spay/neuter.  If you are in need of veterinary care assistance, please email amanda@jamesonrescueranch.org for an application for this program.
