Animals As Natural Therapy
Welcome to Animals as Natural Therapy (ANT), an innovative, highly effective organization that empowers individuals of all ages through honest relationships developed with animal partners. Our experiential education programs challenge our participants, many with minimal socioeconomic opportunities, to expand their horizons in a safe, nurturing environment. Here, with the help of our farm animals and mentors, participants develop relationship skills that positively impact nearly all aspects of their lives. To see a video about ANT and hear directly from some of the people whose lives we've impacted, please visit the ANT video page. At ANT, we seek to strengthen our community by developing healthy, resilient individuals through animal-assisted education and personal growth. Our work is based on the knowledge that animals can reach a place in the human heart for healing that other modalities may not. WE OFFER a variety of Programs for preschool, elementary, middle and high school students; teens in substance abuse recovery; seniors at elder care facilities; veterans, and families living in transitional housing. To hear personal stories from our participants and volunteers about their time at ANT, please visit our Stories page. You can also read our Newsletters online.We also offer Interactive Horse Wisdom workshops for the adults seeking personal insight or healing.
