Bringing joy and loving connection through therapeutic animal assisted visits is our mission!

We’re passionate about animals!  Bringing joy, loving connection and healing to people is our mission.

We believe that spending time with animals can be healing in so many ways.

Studies show that there are so many benefits including:

  • Reduced lonliness

  • Cognitive enrichment

  • Use of motor skills and sensory stimulation

  • Lower blood pressure and calm feelings

  • Boosted self esteem

  • Feelings of care and unconditional acceptance

  • Social stimulation in a positive way/healing heart connection

Sharing our animal friends via Zoom with the students at the Straight Up Abilities summer camp Zoom was

an absolute joy.  Complex needs don't stop these awesome kids and young adults!  So much fun and joyful

hearts a plenty! Thanks to founder Robin Olive for having us, and all of our little zoo critters for a great time together!

Wyatt, Noah and Brooke: We recently brought our baby bunnies Poppet and Chauncey for an in home visit to the Lahr family.  11 year old Noah has high sensory sensitivities but told us that we he holds the bunnies he feels, “happy, comfy and … happy!”  We think brother Wyatt and Mom agreed!  

Introducing children to specific animals with calm, regulated interactions can have an amazing effect on little minds, hearts and nervous systems with lasting results.
