Animals as Natural Therapy’s (ANT’s) Mission is to strengthen our community by developing healthy, resilient individuals through animal-assisted education and personal growth, with special attention to at-risk youth.
ANT’s Vision is to provide an emotionally safe environment using well-orchestrated challenging activities that empower individuals to transform their lives. ANT aims to reach marginalized members of the community: struggling youth and families, veterans and elders in care facilities.
At Animals as Natural Therapy, every day we witness animals who provide people access to their inner resources which have been blocked or buried.
We create a safe setting, staffed by trained, sensitive professionals and amazing animals. We provide individuals a unique opportunity to shed the armor they have created in order to survive difficult, sometimes life-threatening situations, whether on the street, in abusive relationships or on the battlefield. They walk forward with new coping strategies and hope.
