Review for Nature's Edge Therapy Center, Inc., Rice Lake, WI, USA
What a rewarding experience to be a volunteer at NETC! Everyone is incredible to work with and, of course, all the animals! With being a retired Spec. Ed. teacher, I truly realize the importance of quality learning for children and adults with special needs. I was involved in the 2014 summer programs for the Social Skills and Staying Active groups, along with sharing laughter yoga. With my passion for horses, it has been exciting to be part of the hippotherapy program as a sidewalker and an active participant in the therapy sessions. The progress of the children, their connection with the horses, and the strong parental support are absolutely amazing in this natural ranch setting. I am thrilled to be on the NETC staff as an Equine Massage Therapist and Volunteer Coordinator. I love massaging the horses, and even Buddy, the 3-legged dog. It provides many benefits to maintaining their health and well-being, enabling them to be therapy animals for years to come. I am a Pet Partner team with Bandit, Nature’s Edge therapy dog. We visit area nursing homes and senior citizen facilities, bringing joy and healing to the residents.
