About

We're always looking for volunteers to help facilitate the interaction between our animals and clients during the programs we run. We use horses and other gentle farm animals in therapeutic programs for people in need including children with special needs, homeless families, children facing life-threatening illness, Veterans, senior citizens and inmates in the local county jail.

Whether you'd like to go with us onsite to a client location such as Ronald McDonald House in Palo Alto, or meet us at our barn for a program, once signed up to be a volunteer, our Shiftboard will alert you via email to any new program we need volunteers for, and you sign up to participate only in the ones that interest you and fit your schedule. Most programs last 60-90 minutes and there is no commitment for the number of hours or programs that you need to sign up for.
