Agricultural Program



A wide range of health professionals and practitioners recognize what many people in the animal caregiving fields and everyday pet owners have known for years: that pets can be good for our health and well-being. Companion animals are being introduced into the therapeutic regimens of nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, behavioral health programs and others. Therapeutic riding improves the motor skills and coordination of the physically challenged. Pets help inmates in correctional facilities and juvenile offenders to learn empathy and compassion. Dogs can help reluctant readers read. We at Desire To Live recognizes that seniors who have a pet can maintain independent living longer.  This pet can also help them with memory. Military veterans are using therapy dogs and horses to help them cope with ADHD. Canine exercise programs are helping people overcome obesity. In short, wherever people have special needs, someone with passion and an animal with the proper temperament can create an imaginative way to being pets and people together for mutual benefit.


We at Desire to Live believe in Animal Theory.  Resident who wants to participate is paired with a calf  of their choice.  The resident enjoys the pleasure of  keeping the animal groomed, fed and loved.    Cows and calves are being train to become show animal by participating resident. 


Gardening ... keeping Desire to Live beautiful is the objective of some of our residents.  Betty's flower beds. Just beautiful
