As an active duty military family and Vietnam Veteran founded foundation, we know first hand AND have experienced the benefits of Animal Activities.
We have over 14 years of experience in providing our beneficial, interactive and empowering animal activities for the cities we are natives to; the Las Vegas & Henderson community.
We are Proud to announce that we are certified in Animal Assisted therapy & activities through Phil Arkow certification program.
What is Animal Assisted Activities you may ask?
Great Question; According to animaltherapy.net "Animal-Assisted Activities (AAA) provide opportunities for motivational, educational, therapeutic and/or recreational benefits to enhance quality of life. AAA are delivered in a variety of environments by a specially trained professional, paraprofessional, and/or volunteer in association with animals that meet specific criteria. These are generally the basic short meet-and-greet sessions of pets visiting people in a hospital, long-term care center, etc. The same activity can be repeated with many people.
“I pledge to be kind and to care about my global community”
In a rapid-paced world driven by technology, people and families have lost touch with not only themselves, but each other and the living creatures that partake in our shared environment. You can’t show compassion toward an issue, person, place or creature if they aren’t present on your heart and mind. As you may see by viewing our website, The Barnyard Foundation has many concerns about helping people and animals; we believe that in helping even ONE PERSON and ONE CREATURE, we are making a beneficial difference that will create a chain reaction to promote a positive betterment on our global community.
The Barnyard Foundation pledge is to inspire all of us to CARE! Care about ourselves, someone, each other, our planet, the animals who share it with us and to do the actionable thing(s) that show kindness. The Barnyard Foundation’s outreach, activities and support programs encourage people to care about the natural world around them. This work is one small part towards global caring and kindheartedness. Together, let’s start by taking just one small step towards compassion and becoming considerate in our own way, our global community would be more meaningful, and the World could be a better place.
The Barnyard Foundation encourages the POSITIVE & NATURAL relationship, A BOND, between animals and humans. Through acts of kindness and caring we can promote comfort and calmness.
Together, lets reconnect bonds that have been broken and reintroduce the love of animals through the kindness of ourselves. Petting a goat, hugging lamb, playing with a cuddly bunny, brushing a horse and feeling unconditional APPRECIATION that animals express by kindness and caring is PRICELESS and HEALING.
The Barnyard Foundation offers mobile provider-ship of engagement with ponies and barnyard animals across a diverse range of exclusive programs with Animal Assisted Therapeutic activities, serving at-risk youths, VA & Military families, Hospice & Elderly facilities, Foster Children, People with Autism & Disabilities along with promoting literacy, health and wellness in conjunction with your licensed and attending physicians and counselors.
