We love doing our Animal therapy as they are always so funny and interesting. Working with the elderly you can never know what to expect. Staunch opinions, and harsh language(from the residents!) all go hand in hand with the animal therapy sessions, and the cheeky smiles and comments make it all worthwhile. You’ll be surprised at the amount of people that’ll end up with lizards on their heads, rabbits on laps, and snakes round their necks and much more. Everybody has the chance to touch and hold all the friendly animals, stimulating body, mind, and soul. With ducks and chickens wandering around, and cheeky Charlie the Noisy Cockerel, everybody will have a great experience, even all the staff.
Many people in care homes don’t have the chance to see animals, reptiles, and insects anymore, but they’ll do more than see them with a visit from the Animal Man's Mini Zoo.We visit many care homes throughout Scotland providing animal therapy sessions for all abilities and ages. Check out the testimonial page for some comments on some of our visits.
