Improving lives through animal therapy
Guinea Pig

ZooLab is all about making people's lives better – even in the most difficult circumstances. That's why we work in care homes where being able to touch and hold an animal may very well be the brightest thing in someone's life.  

We work in settings as diverse as care homes for the elderly, children's hospices and in pupil referral units.  What unites all of these very different places and people is the power of animal therapy. Take a look at our testimonials and animal galleries to see the effect that animals can have on people.  Animal-assisted therapy is recognised as an occupational therapy within psychology: animals bring people together, helping people to see things with a different perspective and to cope in the most adverse situations.
