What We Do!

Animals as Natural Therapy (ANT) is a place of hope. The animals invite us to see ourselves in wholeness, to see our possibilities.

ANT empowers individuals of all ages to build honest, mutually-respectful relationships with our animal partners through experiential education and equine-facilitated programs.  In a safe, nurturing-yet-challenging environment one develops essential life skills such as: self-management, determination, social & emotional intelligence, gratitude, hope, awareness and curiosity.

“At ANT, I was more than a case or statistic, more than a suicidal teen. I was a person, and I was in pain that words cannot express. Chaco, my horse, and the staff saw me for me. They did not judge my past or present circumstances, and that made all the difference in the world.” –MW

Our work is based on the knowledge that animals can reach a place in the human heart that other approaches may not. Many of those we serve are struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger management, and other challenges affecting their daily lives. Nearly 90% of the youth and families we serve are low income and require financial assistance to attend. Please help us offer the immense gift of transformation and hope by Donating Today.

“You find out here (at ANT) that you are going to make it” –Fred, Military Vet
