Review for Animals As Natural Therapy, Bellingham, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had made a promise during my life that I would try to give back in some way for all the things that happened to me and for me.Recovery from some illness,recovery of a child from addiction,a career that was a perfect fit for me,finding such a great place like Bellingham to spend retirement years,to name a few.I more or less stumbled one day into ANT [Animals as natural therapy].I had tried other things but it wasn't quite the right fit. I was to stuff envelopes and help with mailings.I almost drove away when I arrived at ANT. It was a farm!. I thought I must have made a wrong turn but I thought I may as well go in. A very nice lady asked me to come back in a few days and then I met more nice people and some pretty nice animals.What followed was the start of a new career[I hope]helping kids and people in need.

Try to find a way to help them improve and update the farm to be able to help more kids,vets and families
