Fuzzy Faces Refuge Programs for Humans

Enable Theraputic Interaction with Animals

Our animal interaction programs are designed to provide positive therapeutic experiences for children and adults with the goal of building confidence, enabling positive progress and affording opportunities that may otherwise be unavailable. There are many articles written and opinions rendered regarding Animal Assisted Therapy.  But whether it be hippotherapy or therapeutic ridingequine, canine, farm animal or small animal assisted therapy, the benefit to humans is evident.    For those who can adopt an animal partner, we seek  to make that perfect match.  For those who can’t, we offer on-site, hands on  therapy in a family oriented, homestead setting.

Educate the Public on Inclusion of People with Disabilities

Did you know that 1 in 7 people in the world has some type of disability? Fuzzy  Faces Refuge believes that every person has value and not only the ability to  contribute to society in meaningful ways but a strong desire to do so.  That is  why our volunteers are strong, sincere messengers of inclusion for all  persons.  We are wholehearted advocates for universal design and possess a  core belief that everyone working together can and will create a better world.  Therefore, we are an organization that embraces and provides opportunities  for all persons regardless of disability so that we can grow in understanding  and become stronger as a result.

Educate the Public on Animal Care and Best Practices

The Fuzzy Faces Team is committed to educating the public on the proper care  of animals, whether they be companion animals or farm animals.  If we want our  animals to thrive, then it’s essential that each of us know what is a best practice  for each species.  With this goal in mind, we have developed species specific brochures and hands on therapeutic animal care experiences.  Some simple  guidelines that you can begin now are to monitor the weight and  regulate  the diet of your animal to prevent health issues, sterilize your animal  if they are  not a critically endangered species and groom and keep your  animal in a clean  environment.

Cooperate with Like-Minded Organizations

The saying that there is strength in numbers is never more appropriate than in the world of animal protection and inclusion for persons with disabilities. Each  of us is part of a family and a network, either the one that we were born into or one(s) that we have chosen to be a part of.  That makes each of us a  messenger for our small part of the world.  When we can create meaningful  bonds of cooperation between our networks, then we can maximize our  reach beyond what each group or person can do alone. Each of us has a  special mission or vision that can overlap with the other such that working together in our areas of strength, we CAN change the world!
