Meet the Animals
One of the first animals you will meet at Beacon Barn is Purple the dog. He is a Border Collie mix and was adopted in January 2013 from Pet Helpers, Inc. Purple requires special care due to an eye disorder, however he still loves to be a part of sessions. Next up is Boscoe, who was adopted from North Carolina. He was also adopted in January 2013 about a week after Purple and the two have became the best of friends. Kevin the pig was also rescued in 2013 thanks to Pet Helpers, Inc and although he tends to be more on the shy side, compared to Boscoe, he will greet you at the gate in exchange for a snack! Shawn and Lucky the Sheep are brothers. Tama is 22 years old and Mori is 20 years old and both were born on the farm. They are not always at Beacon Barn due to transitioning between pastures, but when they are you can often find them looking for attention. Recent additions to Beacon Barn are horses Raina and Sahara. Raina was a rescue that came from Pennsylvania and Sahara is a 4-H horse. Spike is our resident mini horse who is best buds with the sheep and Sweetpea the mini pig. Sweetpea may be the smallest of the barn animals, but she is the boss and makes sure everyone knows it! Lastly, there is Dasher, who is a Dachshund/Terrier mix dog that you will often see dressed up in various outfits. Dasher was adopted in 2015 from the Randolph County Humane Society.

All of these animals have their own stories of resilience. Many have been rescued &/or have special needs to some extent.
