Our Mission Statement
Downs On The Farm has two main purposes in which we hope to bless and enrich the lives of as many special needs children and adults as we possibly can. After having a child with a disability we have learned how important animal therapy can be in the life of a child with special needs. We offer a small acreage farm where kids are welcome to come and enjoy the animals at absolutely no cost to them. We have a petting zoo with multiple farm animals such as alpacas, chickens, goats, bunnies, sheep, miniature horses and a miniature pig. We also have full size horses that the children are able to ride for leisure or for therapy riding. Horseback riding is therapeutic for the children in many different aspects. We also offer individual animal therapy programs for the children based on their needs where they will get one on one time . The children also thoroughly enjoy feeding, petting and playing with the farm animals when they come to Downs On The Farm, as well as the fun events held at the farm throughout the year. We also do animal rescue for those mistreated, neglected and unwanted animals in need of finding loving forever homes. These animals will be provided with veterinarian care by our sponsored vet as well as the best of care and food will be provided. The animals will be adopted out to loving homes unless health is not permitting and then they will be welcome to live on the farm as we care for them with their own set of special needs. We spay and neuter all pets before adopting them into new homes therefore we can help the overpopulation of unwanted pets in our community and state. We also enjoy seeing the special needs children connect with our special need rescues. We have combined our two loves into one very special non-profit organization.
