Animal Days
Our Animal Days give young people aged 5 – 15 years a chance to attend the shelter during the school holidays to learn about responsible pet ownership and other animal related issues.

Sessions are three hours long and  tailored to dogs or small animals and cats.

The ‘Dog Session’ Animal Experience includes the opportunity to gain some hands on experience with dogs in the rescue environment. The children get to create a dog specific craft or enrichment item, learn about how to safely interact with dogs and understand dog behaviour, as well as experience kennel cleaning and partake in a dog walk/training activity.

The ‘Cats and Smalls Session’ Animal Experience includes the opportunity to gain some hands on experience with cats and small animals in the rescue environment. The children get to create a cat/rabbit specific craft or enrichment item, learn about how to safely interact with cats and small animals and understand their behaviour, as well as experience small animal cleaning and partake in a small animal handling and cat fussing.

Most days we run two of these sessions and children may attend both sessions if tickets are available at the time of booking.

We also run ‘Full Day’ sessions where your children will get to spend a full day interacting with our cats, dogs, and small animals.

EASTER HOLIDAY CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

It is with regret that we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Animal Experience Days during the Easter Holidays due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, we believe this is the most appropriate and responsible action at this time.

We will update this page with infromation about future Animal Days when we are able to safely resume normal activities.

Please note ALL bookings must be completed online and spaces are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional sessions can also be arranged for home schooled children during normal term time, please contact us to discuss this further.
