Each animal at The Barn was specifically selected for its small stature and pleasant demeanor making him/her suitable to work with children with disabilities. Among the animals are miniature horses, miniature Sicilian donkeys, Nubian and pygmy goats, sheep, rabbits, barn cats, hens and a pot belly pig. Smaller animals are not only less intimidating for children, but their size allows children who are being taken care of most of the time to become care-takers. This is extraordinarily empowering and life-enriching.
Become a sponsor for one of our animals! Many of our animals are featured here on the website and their individual pages contain a link to sponsorship. You can learn more about them and read fun facts about their breed. Animal sponsorship is a recurring monthly donation that will help offset the cost of that animal’s expense. Without the animals, we would not be able to fulfill our mission!
