Their mission is to bring the life-giving benefits of trees to the schools, neighborhoods, and public spaces of the San Francisco Mid-Peninsula.

Animal Assisted Happiness (AAH) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of children and their families experiencing special needs, health or family challenges. AAH provides barnyard friends so children and their family members can interact with animals to bring moments of happiness and smiles into their lives. Barnyard friends include mini-horses, a mini-donkey, alpacas, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, pot bellied pigs, chickens and doves.
AAH’s Farm Chores are on Saturday mornings year-round, when volunteers help clean out animal cages, muck stalls, pens and paddocks. Please check AAH’s online calendar for up to date info.
