More Details

We are a therapy ranch where we partner with animals to heal the mind, body, and spirit.  We utilize horses, small animals, and barn animals in our many programs.  Volunteers are utilized to help care for the small animals which include rabbits, chinchillas, hedgehogs, a bird, and a tortoise.  These small animals live in individual cages in our Critter Cabin.  It is extremely important to us that they are well cared for with clean cages and time for attention and enrichment.

Volunteers are needed during the morning Monday through Friday for a minimum of 2 hours to care for these little guys.  Play Therapy, one of our counseling programs, takes place in the Critter Cabin, as well as camps, special needs field trips, after school programs, etc.  Keeping the Cabin clean and fresh is vitally important.

Our barn animals include miniature horses, dwarf goats, and miniature pot-bellied pigs.  We partner with these animals in Animal Assisted Counseling and other activities. We believe it is important to provide enrichment time for all of the animals.  This is a time when they can be out of their cage or pen for playtime, grooming, training, and loving attention. Time spent in the Critter Cabin or in the Goat Tree House is sure to put a smile on your face!
