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.
