"A Place of Rescue" and "A Journey to Peace."

Scatter Joy Acres

Scatter Joy Acres  is a 26-acre urban Rescue/Animal Therapy ranch in Omaha, NE. 
 We take in abused, neglected and abandoned animals. Those we that don’t find loving forever home are trained 
to become therapists in our Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) program. 

Our certified AAT program provides help for those in greatest need in our community:
 at-risk children, the developmentally disabled, seniors, homeless, the mentally ill, veterans, and those re-entering society.

Projects Needing Financial Assistance

There are a number of projects that need to be completed at Scatter Joy Acres.  We are in need of:

Feeding all our animals is a never-ending expense.  A month of feed for: 

horse or donkey - $100                                                                  

goat or llama - $75                                                             

chickens and ducks - $50

Our animals thank you for your donation so you can continue to put smiles on the faces of people of all ages.
