“Goat therapy is a joy that is a cross of dog, cat and horse therapy.
Animals will listen to the worst that you have done or will do and still love you anyways!”
Hi, my name is Jennifer and my daughter, Janna and I run and manage, J&J second chance small holdings. I grew up on a small farm where we had many kinds of animals!
After I graduated school, I served in the U.S. Army as a combat medic and a few other MOS’s. I served in combat in Iraq and was injured and spent quite a while getting put back together. I am still dealing with things from that time in my life.
When I retired from the military. I decided that we should go back to how I was raised. Yeah, to the small farm life! Everyone can have a second chance to a life that helps their peace of mind. We then found that a lot of animals, that need a second chance in life, especially goats. Along with we found that there were those in our community that also might benefit with a the joy of being around goats. That is where the idea of our little small holding came about. Goats bring about a joy that is like any other.
Janna has been diagnosed with Autism, panic attacks, and more. Animals help her in so many ways; one is because she can hold them when she is having a ruff time, she can also talk to others about the goats, she can also talk to the goats when she is overwhelmed. This is all good for anyone who has challenges. Goats do not judge they will listen to the the worst and still love you.
We also offer “Goat Therapy” events for those that are local and need some joy. “Goat Therapy” is the happiness and other good feelings you get from petting, talking to and holding goats. Goat therapy is a joy that is a cross of dog, cat and horse therapy. Animals will listen to the worst that you have done or will do and still love you anyways! We also help animals find their forever homes!
