What We Do

We are a 26-acre urban agricultural rescue, therapy, and educational ranch. Our certified Animal Assisted Therapy program provides help for those in greatest need: at-risk children, the developmentally disabled, seniors, homeless, the mentally ill, veterans, and those re-entering society.

We rescue and foster abused, neglected and abandoned animals. Those that don’t find loving forever homes are trained to become therapists in our Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) program.

We often provide our services at little or no cost to those in need.

Interesting Info

Pets can be good for our health. They are known to increase a sense of well-being and reduce our stress levels.
In the past year we have rescued 230 animals.
Our "Be Somebody" Program has had 790 youth participate successfully.
