TimberKnolls Spirit Cove is a nonprofit equine and canine (specifically Newfoundlands, or “Newfies”) therapy program providing hope and healing at no charge to veterans, military families, firefighters, EMS workers, doctors, nurses, teachers, and trauma victims.

The program offers help to more than 100,000 people nationwide each year. The therapy ranch will be located on 16 acres off Evans Road that has been purchased from Kanuga. Only a limited amount of therapy will be done on site, as the animals almost exclusively travel “to” their clients in hospitals,schools, fire departments, police departments, and other locations throughout the country.

Newfoundlands are known as ‘gentle giants’ with a quiet temperament and natural ability to connect with people in need of healing and care, especially those suffering from illness or trauma. The program will also offer equine therapy.
