St. Joseph Living Center, Windham, CT

The senior residents of St. Joseph Living Center enjoyed a visit from The Farm to Heart Petting Zoo, thanks to our Connecticut chapter.  Many of the residents of this facility are retired or sick nuns who have taken a vow of poverty. Throughout their lives, they dedicated themselves to educating children and working in hospitals, food pantries and homeless shelters. As part of National Skilled Nursing Care Week, the petting zoo brought baby animals to the facility for the residents to hold and pet outside on the facility grounds.  In addition, there was an ice cream sundae bar set up so that the residents could enjoy ice cream sundaes after they interacted with the animals.
