Initially created to rescue mares and foals that were discarded by the drug industry, Dreamchaser Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation now works to save horses and other farm animals from starvation, abuse, abandonment, and slaughter. Volunteers work to gentle and train the horses, many of which come to the ranch wild, until they're comfortable enough to join the herd. On average, a rescued horse spends roughly one year at the ranch. The ultimate goal is to place every animal into a loving, permanent home through the ranch’s adoption program. The organization also works to educate the public about the inhumane treatment of animals and provides enrichment programs for local foster children.

At 18 locations throughout the greater Phoenix area, Delia's team inspects, maintains, and cleans all manner of clothing and fabric, enhancing this service with free pickup and delivery. Founded in 1969, they're careful to ensure that each item gets the right kind of treatment. Sturdy material such as wool and cotton undergoes the standard cleaning. More delicate fabrics and garments with beads or sequins—cowboy outfits, for example—go through a gentler method that prevents any damage. To keep customers in the know, they've documented their means of fabric care in explicit detail online. Delia's crew also works to sew buttons back on, replace zippers, and make alterations.
