Donkeys and Ducks and Dogs, Oh My!

| No Comments

The mission of Young's Funny Farm in Pennsylvania is simply, "We Bring Smiles." The farm is home to a wide variety of animals including therapy dogs, ducks, horses, and donkeys. According to their website, Young's Funny Farm currently has 12 therapy animals and visits a wide variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, special needs centers, schools, church programs, camps and community events for animal assisted therapies and animal assisted activities.

There are six therapy ducks including one named "Afro" who has a hairstyle that would make anyone feel better just by looking at it. And the farm's recently deceased therapy dog Timmy was one of the few dogs assigned to work in the Family Assistance Center at Ground Zero in New York City after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Check out the Young's Funny Farm website for more information and pictures of their animals in action!
