Our Founder

14 Hands Ranch and the nonprofit enterprise here, was founded by internationally-known animal attorney Jennifer Edwards. She has spent her life helping animals and their people. She has been practicing strictly Animal Law for 14 years, and also founded a law firm, The Animal Law Center to fill the legal voids she saw in the world. Jennifer recognized the need for working with the amazing human-animal bond, therapy work with animals, education about animals, advocacy for animals and their people, and more strategic rescue efforts. She was determined to acquire a place to fulfill this dream, hence the Animal Justice Center at 14 Hands Ranch where this incredible venture calls home.
