Animals Need Ride to Attend Events

Effictive May 6th, Young's Funny Farm has lost our means of
transportating our animals to events.
While we hope this situation is just a temporary inconvience,
for us to attend events, you will need to pick us up at our
Berwick location with a vehicle with a class 3 or class 4 hitch
and bring us to your event and back to Berwick. 
 

We are seeking a donation of a vehecle that can pull a horse trailer, having a class 3 or class 4 hitch with electric brake or donations of funds to help buy a newer vehicle.

Why the plea? We make visits for free accepting donations if available. That means we have no operating visit to budget from.



Donations are tax deductible. 

To request visit, please fill out request form.

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

Donations can be made by clicking on the donate button on the bottom right of this page. Donations are used for care and feeding of our animals, veterinarian bills and support our visits.

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!"
