We are a non profit that uses horses and 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.

We have volunteers who help us take care of our animals every day. This includes barn chores such as cleaning animal stalls, scrubbing water buckets, etc. It also includes letting the animals out for play time and some light feeding. Our animals include 3 miniature horses, 2 goats, 2 sheep, 3 bunnies, 2 guinea pigs, 1 full size horse, 1 cat and 9 chickens.

Morning animal care takes 90 minutes to 2 hours and we ask our volunteers to start their shift sometime between 8am and 9:30am. We do require a weekly commitment for this volunteer opportunity. No previous farm animal experience required. We'll provide training.
