Care Home, SEN and Animals as Therapy visits

Caring Creatures


Animals have a special way of lighting up a persons day and cheering people up.  Many people feel a natural connection with animals. We can bring a variety of animals to care homes, day centres, SEN groups, hospitals, hospices and charities for people to see up close, handle, stroke and sometimes even feed. The animals aid in evoking emotions and memories, help create new memories and invite calm.

We bring along animals that suit this type of session, including our tame, greedy guinea pigs and cuddly rats! We also have our wonderful rescue dog, Chip- who is great to pet and fuss and even does his own mini 'show' of tricks- which never fails to get everyone roaring with laughter!


Please get in touch with our multi-award winning team if we can add a special something to someones day! We love seeing everyones faces light up! Several local care homes choose to have us visit regularly as a treat for their residents and benefit from a multi-booking discount- please get in touch for more information. Animals can also be taken to the rooms of bed-bound individuals.

Our lead presenter Becky also holds a diploma with distinction in Animal Assisted Therapy and our team has a wealth of experience working with  a range of SEND and with those with dementia and other health conditions- so you can book with confidence.

"We have used Teaching Talons a few times now and would highly recommend them! They are knowledgeable, extremely interactive, and all the team are great with the children and animals. Very good value for money and we will definitely be booking in with them again!"

-Emily Turnbull, Residential Worker, Foxgloves childrens home
