In 2016 Cooper Ridge was established and it became clear early on that our animals would serve a special purpose.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in the Augusta, Georgia area.
Utilizing both Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) we provide developmental, educational, and emotional support to children through structured farm activities.

Improve the mental, physical and emotional well-being of our participants while setting the highest industry standard for AAT involving farm animals.
Children today face far greater pressures and challenges than ever before. Social media and electronics have proven to be both a blessing and a curse at times during those crucial developmental years. Now add to this the layer of a child struggling with a disability, experiencing social or behavioral disorders, or in need of emotional support.
This is where Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) comes into play. Caring for and building a trusting relationship with a non-judgmental animal can be life-changing for a struggling child.
Animals have an innate ability to help and heal us, if you are interested in finding out more please contact us at 706-381-0880 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
