We Bring Smiles is the mission
of 
Young's Funny Farm

raise_region_2018.png

Young’s Funny Farm is in the Raise the Region 2018!

 

Thank you to everyone who donated to us through  Raise the Region.

We raised enough to be invited back next year and raised enough to have our veterinarian come in for annual vet checks, shots and float the teeth. 

We can always use donations year round and are looking for spare fence planks, wooded posts and gates of all sizes.

We also can use a donated vehicle with class 3 hitch that can pull horse trailer.

 

How does it work?  Visit www.raisetheregion.org to select The Berwick Area United Way to support Young’s Funny Farm and donate to our cause. Check out our progress on the Leaderboard! Help us SHARE and SPREAD the word. Follow us on Facebook for updates. As always, we THANK YOU for your support!

Proceeds will be used to pay for yelarly animal exams, animal care, vehicle, maintenance and support our visits with the rescued donkeys throughout eastern and central Pennsylvania.

 



We accomplish our mission by using our unique blend of therapy animals to facilities throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania.

What make our animals unique, is the fact that we use rescues. Since the U.S. Bureau of Land Management started the Wild Horse and Burro Program in 1971, as of July 2017, there have been approximately 38,970 burros/donkeys adopted. We are the only people to use formaly wild donkeys for therapy work.
 
If you would like us to attend your event, please fill out our request form so we can evaluate your request. 

 

Donations are now tax deductible thanks to the Greater Berwick United Way.

Who We Are
Young's Funny Farm is the home of some very special therapy animals including our therapy donkeys Henry & Honeybun; our miniature therapy horses, Buddy & Shorty; therapy ducks, Afro, Daffy, Donald, Frenchie, Stumpy & Von Drake; and our cross trained service/therapy dogs Cinderella. All our animals are part of the Pet Partners® and have taken the same testing that the more common therapy dog takes with only minor adjustments for different species.


We currently have 11 therapy animals available for visits. 

What We Do
We visit many different types of facilities including hospitals, nursing homes, special needs centers, schools, church programs, camps and other community events. We do many special needs camps and classes as well as assisted living units.

We Can Alway Use Donations

We volunteer our time and resources and our visits and services are done for free. First we need donations and if you are able to help, with a donation, of any amount, even a small amount, it all adds up and helps. If you cannot help, do not feel bad, but sometimes words of encouragement help too.

You can use PayPal buy clicking the button on the bottom of the page or by sending a check to Young's Funny Farm, 764 Knob Mountain Rd, Berwick PA 18603. For a better break down of costs please click here.

"Animals have the ability to bring out the best in people; when you  have the chance to cuddle with Timmy or Cinder, or
hear Honeybun "sing" for her 
carrot, it takes you back to gentler days of petting zoos, and connecting with nature."

"It is a pleasure for me to be able to express the experience and enjoyment brought to our residents from Young’s Funny Farm. We are aware that other facilities
host this group — but in their parking lots. We bring them into the facility, into the Activities Room where they are able to move among the residents, be pet and touched and given much love. 

Young’s Funny Farm has visited our facility many times. Their interactions with our residents is exceptional. They are patient and understanding, while interacting 
with our residents and their animals. Residents are entertained as well as excited to have these certified animals in such close proximity. Their faces tell it all."

"HOORAY FOR YOUNG’S FUNNY FARM!"
