A Weekly Group for Children Impacted by Trauma or Loss

Heartland Farm Sanctuary invites children ages 8 through 12 impacted by trauma or loss to participate in our weekly Animal Hearts Kids’ Program – a fun, supportive, engaging group at our barn. 

Dates & Times:  Fridays, April 20 – June 8 from 4:30 – 6:00 PM

Location:  Heartland Farm Sanctuary, 11713 Mid Town Road in Verona, WI

Cost: Due to a generous grant this year, we are able to waive the $40 cost for the first 10 participants.

Our staff and volunteers have discovered firsthand how Heartland’s animals lift our spirits, provide gentle companionship, and offer us the opportunity to give back. Each of our 95+ rescued animals – goats, pigs, llamas, sheep, and more – have their own stories of challenge and healing. Our animals are healthy and well-socialized, and enjoy contact with people of all ages. Confidentiality will be maintained.

Activities include light animal care and interaction in a supportive group setting with licensed therapists and Heartland Animal Care staff. All activities are appropriate for participants’ ages and abilities.

If you’re interested, please email our Executive Director, Jen Korz, at or call (608) 354-2741.
