EQUUS Foundation Awards Green Chimneys Grant for Equine Wellness

Our Farm & Wildlife Center is home to over 300 farm animals, permanently injured or imprinted wildlife and horses. The main purpose for each animal’s presence is to thrive in the care at Green Chimneys and play a supportive role in educational and animal-assisted therapy for children with special needs. By sponsoring an animal, you are directly supporting the daily care for our most popular teachers—our animals! Give a gift,

Green Chimneys recently received a $3,300 grant from the EQUUS Foundation. The Richard L. Parish, Jr. Memorial Horse Whisperer Grant will help maintain a level of care for our horses that exemplifies the environment of nurturing and healing that makes us unique.


The horses at Green Chimneys play an integral role in the healing process of our children. This grant will support our equine wellness program which provides quality of life medical care to horses in our therapeutic riding program. Animal welfare is at the core of our mission and great lengths are taken so each animal receives the utmost nutrition, housing and veterinary care. 

The EQUUS Foundation’s continued support of over $120,000 spans 12 years and is vital in helping the equines who help children with special needs. And we are so grateful!

We believe that when our children see that animals are well cared for, they will feel confident that they too will be well cared for as a student or resident. Learn more about our philosphy and approach to nature-based education >
