Who We AreYoung'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 & Timmy. 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 12 therapy animals available for visits.
What We DoWe 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 are proud to report that we were able to travel over 8,300 miles in 2010 for free visits beating 2009's record of 8,100 miles. That is a lot of gas and lots of smiles!
We Can Alway Use DonationsWe 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.

"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 facilitieshost 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."
