Howdy! Meet the Animals Animal Assisted Therapy Animal Rescue Community Service What People are Saying Feed the Animals News from the Ranch About the Lyons

Rob & Robin LyonWe both retired from Delta airlines, Robin as a flight attendant and Rob as a pilot. And we have been rescuing abandoned and neglected animals at our ranch for over seven years. Five years ago, we decided to take animals to nursing homes and hospitals to cheer up the patients.

We started with cats, dogs, parrots, then minature horses and donkeys.Then we decided to get a camel. Robin had read a report several years before about some veterinary students working with a camel as a therapy project in New York. With a bachelor's degree in behavioral science from U.C. Davis, she decided she could train a camel to interact with the sick and elderly.
