rescue, rehabilitate animals in need of rescue and use specially selected animals for providing therapy to people in need of rehabilitation

by Barbara Mills in Newark, England, United Kingdom

We have seen the positive effects to both animals and people when you bring both together.

We use a safe and secure environment to allow us to provide  this fantastic experience to anyone who would benefit.

We have provided a safe haven for rescued animals for 25yrs+ 

We decided to use some of the animals for therapy after we saw the benefits the animals made for visitors  both adults and children on our open days.

The biggest benefit was with people who had health and behavioural issues as the animals seem to know  and they react differently.

Animals do not judge people. they accept people for who they are with any differences they may have.

Animals can help people relax who may not be able to relax in everyday life, they can bring out peoples confidence and self worth and enable them to communicate with people more easily.

We have seen amazing health benefits in people who have eyesight, hearing, nerve, memory, muscle and co-ordination  issues and  elderly people all have gained massive confidence and enjoyment from handling the animals.

We use a variety of animals from small guinea pigs to small livestock, miniature ponies and unusual animals. People can choose which animals they wish to start with and can work their way up through the animals at their own pace. using grooming, cuddling and also by the differences in each species. 

i.e eyesight issues... feel the difference between a large longhaired large eared rabbit and  a small shorthaired, small eared rabbit.

There is massive amount that can be incorporated into therapy from small input to large amount of input from the person.

We offer a tiered price structure as we find it is the people who are financially disadvantaged that are the ones that get the most benefit  from contact with the animals 

This is a lifelong self funded passion that  would be able to expand with help from crowdfunding.
