Comments: I would like my daughter be involved in volunteer work. Kyatie loves working with animals. until 2 years ago we were involved in labs4rescue, and fostered las until adoption. we then adopted one and no longer fostered. The dogs just bonded and responded to her. I do not want her involved with a shelter, but she wants to help animals again. I will be contacting you after the holidays for volunteer help.

Comments: I wanted to thank you for my recent volunteering experience at the ranch.. After one hour on the pasture I had the same feeling as I do after a yoga session - muscles warm and pleasantly tired, my mind relaxed and calm and my spirit renewed. I left smiling and kept that happy feeling all day!

Comments: My husband, daughter, and I would like to commend you on the outstanding work you do! Upon visiting your ranch we were welcomed by such curious, kind, and loving animals. It is very obvious that your animals are very, very happy and we absolutely loved being able to help feed them and spend time with them!

Name: Kathy Yankowy

Comments: I attended a volunteer orientation this past Sunday. I spent approximately 4 1/2 hours working with the animals and cleaning the farm. While 'lotioning the pigs' I mentioned to Kathy I can see how this work is so beneficial as therapy - in the time I was on the farm I never once thought of myself, my "to-do list", my personal issues, etc. It is simply about helping the animals.It takes the focus off ourselves and opens us to the peace and happiness that comes from helping others.

Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed my visit Saturday to the ranch. Yes, it was a lot of work, but the animals are so worthy of care and attention, and your dedication is inspiring. A special thanks to you and Ben for taking time out of your Saturday afternoon for me. I learned a lot and will definitely spread the word about the fine work you are doing.

Comments: I love your cause. I mean I enjoy that people do this kind of stuff, and I'm only 14 going on 15. I have experience with many different kinds of animals and I sure would like to volunteer there. It seems that the ranch is one of the many places that are able to give there heart to therapudic animals and people. Thanks so much for helping others. I at least know that there are people like that in the world.
