We would LOVE to see you at these upcoming community events, visits and fundraisers!

Anxiety Awareness Virtual Event

We know animals are good for the SOUL, so thanks to all who joined us 2/20/22 on Zoom for this virtual anxiety awareness event!

The platform featured a short introduction by Miss Teen Lakemoor  Adelynn. Everyone then experienced the joy and happiness that our therapy animals share, even virtually, which decreased stress and anxiety. Jodie Diegel, SOUL Harbour Ranch founder and nurse coach, also led us through short breathing and meditation exercises for further anxiety and stress reduction.
