Jodi Messenich, CEO/Executive Director
Start Date: 2008

Jodi Messenich is the former co-owner and operator of American Sport Horses, a for-profit boarding and horse show facility. In 2004, Jodi began rescuing horses after witnessing abuse, neglect, and the inhumane slaughter that so often occurs in the horse industry. Four years later, Jodi met a woman who was helping at-risk children in the foster care system. Together they developed a new venture pairing recued horses with rescued foster children in therapeutic setting; Zuma's Rescue Ranch was born.

As the Executive Director of Zuma's Rescue Ranch, Jodi dedicates over 70 volunteer hours a week to operating the ranch, overseeing the four children's programs, conducting public relations and community outreach initiatives, heading fundraising events, educating prospective horse owners on equine care and responsible breeding practices, raising public awareness, and actively rescuing horses from abusive environments.
