We have a great program called Healing Hearts, where we work with children Youth Haven, Children's Network, PACE Center for Girls, Valerie's House and the Naples Women and Children's Shelter. These children have tough lives and have come from varied backgrounds, we bring them out to the sanctuary to meet our animals and hear their stories of how they overcame abuse, neglect and abandonment and learned how to trust and love again. Watching the children connect with one of our animals is very rewarding. We do an art project with them and feed them lunch. Our founder, Nancy Smith, has a talk with them about courage, what they want to do with their lives, and how they can be anything they want to be. The kids all take home a goodie bag with a special necklace containing wolf hair from our very courageous blind wolf Indy. To request to become part of this program, please click the button below.
