ROAD TRIP: Solvang Friendship House


FriendshipHouse_Laura holding FalconHealing HEART Sanctuary had the honor taking many of our special needs therapy animals to the Solvang Friendship House in the Santa Ynez Valley.  Solvang Friendship House is a home-like setting for the elderly dealing with Alzheimer’s, Dementia or just frailty; and are not yet needing a nursing home setting.

The residents and staff were so friendly and happy; and the animals really had a good time.  Falcon, HHS‘s therapy goat, was probably the biggest hit. FriendshipHouse_Solomon and Bitty getting treats_resizeBitty, our 110 lb African Sulcata, made quite the stir as well, though he wanted to eat all their flowering plants!

HHS also had Jenny & Gracie (turtles), Rugby & Blue (ducks) as well as our Coli and Solomon (our little white cart dogs) there.

What a great day for all!
