Our mission statement:
  • Provide a safe haven at Apifera Farm for elder/special needs creatures
  • This includes hospice cases when needed
  • Dedicate ourselves to bringing our animals together with elder/special needs people for mutual healing and wellness visits at our farm, but also at elder residences 

Do you have an elder/special needs animal that needs rehoming? Contact Katherinekatherine@katherinedunn.com. We look at each case individually. We also want to work with shelters, and farms that have special needs animals/elders/goat kids that might otherwise be euthanized.
