About Animal Assisted Happiness

Founded in 2009, our mission is to enrich the lives of youth with needs through barnyard animal interactions at our Smile Farm and mobile visits, creating moments of joy and happiness throughout our AAH Community. Uniquely situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, we provide barnyard buddies so children and their families can 'experience the smiles only animals can bring'. Our vision is a 'million smiles'. We are 1005 funded by donations and grants and largely operate with our large network of volunteers.

Absolutely beautiful place with wonderful and kind volunteers staff. I came with my 6 month old and she loved it She loved the bunnies and chickens. This place is very beautiful and thoughtful. They have painted rocks all over the place which I thought is really nice. Their animals all seem well taken care of. They have all kinds of farm animals and they even let you pet them.

Recommend a great place to volunteer at Animal Assisted Happiness Sunnyvale CA 94089This small farm is not big with many animals like horse goat pig bunny guinea pig duck turtle and chicken. All the animals are raised outdoors making it safe and fun for kids. My kid loves here very much. She is trying her best to interact with the little animals she loves. It is a very reliable non-profit organization for the ideal place to volunteering.Search for Animal Assisted Happiness on Google maps and access to the official website to apply for volunteers. After that you need to participate in orientation training through zoom and then email Jonathan the date and specific time of volunteer activities. After Jonathans email is confirmed you can provide services on the day you choose volunteers Hope more volunteers to join Do your best to create more smiles Go go go

It was an amazing tour for my kids and his friends to celebrate his birthday Claire was our guide and she was very patient with the very hyperactive group of kids we had. Everything was just perfect and adults also had fun at AAH.

If I could give it 10 stars I would A few weekends ago while hiking at Rancho a wonderful woman and her husband told me about this hidden gem if I ever find them ill buy them dinner. This place is amazing. I spent 2 and half hours here with my 3 year old twins. Anyone with toddlers knows that spending that amount of time with no meltdowns is a win The staff is so friendly they allow the kids and adults into the chicken area you can pet the rabbits and guinea pigs. They also allow you to put the goats horses and alpacas if they come up to you which they do The ducks waddle around the farm freely which my boys loved. The entire farm is clean well as clean as a farm can be The paths are well marked. I cant wait to go back. Did I mention the amazing and friendly staff Seriously if you are lucky enough to get the chance to go to this wonderful place. Go.

One of my favorite places to visit. I stayed in California for about six weeks and would try to walk by the park every day just to see the animals. I loved when it was open and spending time with the animals with picturesque pathways throughout the farm. The staff is absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to go back.
