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.
Meet Heartland's new Development Director, Lorri Houston! Lorri's 25+ years of fundraising experience will help us greatly expand our ability to rescue more animals and provide more animal-assisted programming for vulnerable youth.
A barn tour is the best way to learn more about Heartland and meet our cute, friendly and funny animals. Find out about upcoming public barn tours by visiting our tours page! We'll see you out at the farm!
