Allen’s Place Inc

Catawba CountyVisit our WebsiteTherapeutic Riding

Founded in 2011


To provide a safe environment for children of all abilities to benefit from animal assisted therapy regardless of diagnosis.


The idea of Allen’s place began as nothing more than a conversation between two indviduals who barely knew each other. After countless hours of conversation it was obvious that their talents should be combined in order to make a difference in the lives of children with terminal illnesses or special needs and to allow the memory of Allen to live on at his favorite residence. Allen was the son of the Executive Director and battled rhabdomyosarcoma for 2 1/2 years. His struggle finally ended on December 28, 2010. Our Program Coordinator is the adoptive mom of four children with special needs. Together, we vow to make a difference in Allen’s name and memory.
