During your visit to Planet Peace, you may have the opportunity to interact with a variety of our therapy and comfort animals. Each animal has a unique personality. We hope you will learn to love each of them as much as we do! 



Jules got Bud "Aladdin Valor" when he was only 8 months old, in May 1988. He is a Polish Arabian and a sweet, gentle soul. Bud is our oldest herd member. Bud enjoys horsemanship lessons and a good scratch on his forehead.



Lacey is a soft and cuddly standard poodle who was adopted in November 2017. She was certified as a therapy dog in winter of 2020. Lacey is extremely compassionate. She loves people, playing with Dudley, and chasing squirrels.

Dudley joined the herd on December 2016. He is a Miniature Shetland Pony and was adopted from Pasture Pals Equine Rescue and has come a long way in his training and trust. Dudley loves snacks, giving any rides, and hugs. 



Ridgely was born in November 2014 and came home to Planet Peace Farm in May of 2015. He was certified as a therapy dog in summer of 2016. Ridgely loves children, being brushed, and sitting on the heater vent in the winter.



Melody is our newest addition. She is a Quarter Horse and was rescued from a feed lot and came to us in October 2020. Like her name, Melody is very mellow. She loves attention and looks forward to horsemanship lessons soon. 



Binky was deposited by aliens as a kitten in April 2014. He determines when he participates as a comfort animal and will show you by rubbing against your leg, sitting nearby, or joining in a walk. He loves Lacey and chasing bugs. 


We garden year-round on the Planet Peace Farm in several community garden areas. We use a sustainable, organic, and low-effort “Back to Eden” gardening approach. We are always looking for volunteers to help plant, weed, water, and harvest. Be on the lookout for opportunities to purchase produce, local honey, and farm-fresh eggs. We also contribute to the “Plant-a-Row for the Hungry” program in Wake County at Logan’s One Stop Garden Shop who donates our vegetables to Interfaith Food Shuttle.
