When a real horse walks into the hospital room of a sick child, it is always a magical experience. Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses (Gainesville, Florida 32635) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity. The teams of tiny horses visit over 25,000 adults and children each year inside hospitals, hospice programs, and with children who have experienced traumatic events. From the school children and first responders of Sandy Hook Elementary School / Newtown, CT, to the tornado survivors of Moore, OK, child trafficking victims in Washington D.C. and even children living in orphanages in Greece, these tiny horses bring their special love where it is needed most.


Gentle Carousel’s award winning literacy program Reading Is Magic also brings also real horses inside schools, at risk youth programs and libraries to inspire young readers and “bring books to life.”

Gentle Carousel’s therapy horse Magic was named by TIME Magazine one of History’s Ten Most Courageous Animals (the only living animal on the list).  She is also AARP’s Most Heroic Pet in America, a Readers Digest/Americantowns Power of One Hero and was one of Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s Ten Most Heroic Animals In America.

Therapy horses Magic and Hamlet are honored to be 2014 Breyer Model Horses.

Sasha Farm (Manchester, Michigan 48158) is the midwest’s largest farm animal sanctuary. At our shelter, not only do we provide food and water, veterinary care and a roof over their heads, we also give the animal residents affection, social interaction with others of their own species, and a sense of security.


SASHA’s founders, Dorothy Davies and Monte Jackson, started saving animals a couple decades ago. Among the first bunch was a nine-month-old pet shop puppy that a family had purchased, but couldn’t appropriately care for. A female Border Collie/Spaniel mix with a white tip on the end of her tail, she quickly worked her way into Monte’s and Dorothy’s hearts. She was the farm dog in charge of it all, keeping tabs on every other animal that came to live at the farm over the years.

Sasha was a wonderful canine companion, a true friend, who lived and loved for 17 years. In honor and in memory of this beloved dog, her caretakers chose to name their sanctuary “SASHA Farm.” The name SASHA is also an acronym for the animal rescue operation – Sanctuary And Safe Haven for Animals.

The sanctuary currently shelters over 200 animals, each with its own story to tell. Some were dumped and discarded, some left to die. They have come from unhappy circumstances, often mistreated or neglected, but now have a safe, permanent home at SASHA Farm.

Heartland Farm Sanctuary (Madison, Wisconsin 53744)  founded in 2009, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless farm animals in Wisconsin, and building connections between animals and vulnerable youth. We created Heartland to provide a safe, peaceful environment where youth and farm animals could come together to heal, grow, and have fun.



Many children today face significant life challenges such as physical, emotional, or cognitive developmental delays, a history of delinquent behavior or other detrimental life choices, and an abusive or otherwise troubling home life. Research has shown that these children can benefit tremendously by taking part in animal-assisted therapeutic activities, such as those programs developed by Heartland using the farm animals we help.

Our mission is to provide care for farm animals in need, nurture people through the human-animal bond, and foster respect and kindness toward animals and each other.

Recognizing the growing and unmet need for farm animal shelters in the state, Heartland Farm Sanctuary strives to create partnerships with Wisconsin’s animal shelters, animal control agencies, farmers, schools, and other organizations to raise awareness of farm animals’ needs and improve their quality of life. These collaborations are the foundation of Heartland’s philosophy of how we can best help these vulnerable creatures.

Animal Rescue of Fresno (Fresno, California 93726) was established in 1998 by a group of community members who wanted to do something about the high number of homeless dogs that were dying because no one gave them a chance to find their forever home.


ARF began its operations out of a small facility on Belmont Ave and Highway 99. ARF moved to its current location on Dakota Ave. in 2005. From its humble beginnings, ARF has grown quickly, so that more and more dogs each year can be rescued and adopted out to loving forever homes.
