Opal Makes a Friend

Our sweet goat Opal relaxes with a young visitor. These two had an instant connection and spent quite a bit of time together. By the looks on their faces, they were so happy and didn't have a care in the world!

Animal Assisted Programming

Heartland invites boys and girls ages 8-12 living with a special need to join our Barn Time program, starting this September. To learn more on the benefits of animal-assisted therapy programs such as Barn Time, read this article from the American Journal of Critical Care.

Love working with animals? We are looking for animal care volunteers in our barn! Find out more about this and other volunteer opportunities by attending one of our Volunteer Information Sessions at the Verona Public Library. The next session is Wednesday, 9/17 at 7 PM.

Please Welcome Lorri Houston

Animal Spotlight: Lucy the Potbelly Pig

Lucy is a potbellied pig who came to Heartland over a year ago. She was originally a "house" pig, but sadly her family was going through a divorce and they were no longer able to keep her.
