Kiddy Up Ranch provides equine therapy to special needs children and adults as well as programs for veterans and first responders. We are in need of volunteers to help feed and maintain our petting zoo. The petting zoo includes goats, chickens, ducks, pigs and bunnies. Duties would include feeding and providing water for the animals, cleaning cages, pens, sidewalk and common areas of petting zoo. Volunteers needed seven days a week morning (9-11) and afternoon (4-6).
Our mission is to help every child meet their emotional, social, cognitive, physical, and educational goals. We achieve this goal through many different methods using animal facilitated therapy and learning techniques. We also provide a place of respite for our families. At Kiddy Up Ranch, no child is left behind

Horse Boy Method has a simple 6-stage process. We create the right environment, address sensory issues and these then allow perspective taking and academics to be from the saddle, riding with the child and finally self-advocacy. Horse Boy Method is specific to Autism and neuro-psychiatric conditions.
