Green Chimneys Founder Shares Big Birthday Wish

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,

December 28, 2015


Tuesday, December 29 marks the 87th birthday for Green Chimneys Founder, Dr. Sam “Rollo” Ross, Jr. And like most birthdays, Dr. Ross will spend the day working at his desk, advocating for the very organization he started nearly 70 years ago.

When asked about a birthday wish, Dr. Ross quickly replied, “I have everything I need, I only ask that you give to the children and animals of Green Chimneys.”

As you make arrangements for year-end gifts, please consider Dr. Ross’ wish. Your support will not only help make his day extra special, it will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children with special needs who benefit from a special education program that embraces nature-based learning and animal-assisted activities and therapies.

Need another reason? Your gift will also help provide food and veterinary care for the 300+ farm animals and unreleaseable wildlife who call Green Chimneys home. These furry and feathered friends are vital in the helping Green Chimneys children learn and grow.
