We go to care homes around the Midlands, bringing animals for Animal Assisted Therapy.
This includes discussing pets and animals residents have owned or encountered during their life and we focus on discussing memories, sometimes with amazing results!

 Senior Citizens


Residents often struggle emotionally as they have no access to animals
Lola the Therapy Dog and her puppy cat Kitkat are a source of delight to many and can go to bed-bound residents.

Residents become animated and chat excitedly about the animals to each other. Their old vibrant personality begins to show through.  They ask questions and feel involved.  Some of the exotic animals remind them of family holidays or experiences working abroad. 

Working with Jarville Jungle and others, we can also offer music and crafts. Block booking several sessions throughout the year can reduce the price. 


 Special Needs


Residents enjoy being encouraged to hold the animals.  They ask questions, interact more and feel involved. They can learn simple literacy and numeracy using the animals.

Projects can be run to create artefacts such as model animals and interesting displays.  

Give your residents (and your carers) a day to remember!! Working with Jarville Jungle and others, we can also offer music and crafts. Block booking several sessions throughout the year can reduce the price.
