what we do
Animal Assisted Happiness
Copyright © 2009-2018 by Animal Assisted Happiness. All rights reserved.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of children and their families experiencing special needs, health or family challenges. We provide barnyard friends so children and their family members can interact with animals to bring moments of happiness and smiles into their lives. Our barnyard friends include mini-horses, a mini-donkey, alpacas, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, pot bellie pigs, chickens and doves. We have 3 programs:

1. AAH Smile Farm Visits. We recognize that each child is unique and responds differently. We've also have found that it takes multiple, repetitive visits for a child to become comfortable. So we provide private and small-group visits so your child can interact at their own pace, with minimal distractions. So come as many times as you need.

2. Mobile Barnyard Friends. We recognize that, many times, it is difficult to come to our barnyard. For groups with limited or inconvenient mobility, we can bring the barnyard friends to you.

3. AAH Smile Farm Vocational Education Program. For organizations that have teenage/adults with special needs, we can collaborate with you and offer vocational training at the barnyard where young adults can learn to care for animals, feed and clean stalls.
To schedule a program or if you have any questions, contact christine@aahsmilefarm.org.
