There are 14 members to The Guinea Pig Gang, a lovely mixture of colours, textures and personalities. They can be cuddled in their little baskets or just on a waterproof blanket, depending on the individual requirements. They have a large transport cage on wheels to allow us to be mobile around the home and to access the different floors with minimal set up time as well as little mess. These little critters are fluffy miracle workers who spread happiness and joy where ever they go. Animal therapy is proven to lower stress, reduce anxiety, as well as the feeling isolation and depression. Research shows that there is an increase in focus and self esteem as well as improving fine motor skills when working with animals. We supply fresh veggies for the residents to feed the guineas which is enjoyed by all.
The Guinea Pig Gang is also a super visit for the children at a nursery school. The children can learn all about guinea pig care and nutrition. They can learn how to correctly handle the guineas and enjoy looking at, and feeling the various coat textures.
