Animal Therapy

Animal therapy, the petting zoo experience from Jigsaw Farm, will bring exotic and native animals to care homes in the Northwest, in both Co. Donegal and in the Derry City & Strabane Local Authority areas.

Care home residents will engage with alpacas, ducks, rabbits, pigs, goats, guinea pigs, tortoises and many more types of animals. The sessions will run over the summer of 2024.

We want to build on our past working relationships with both the staff and residents of the residential facilities in Co. Donegal and in Derry City & Strabane local authority. We want to engage in a meaningful way and believe that the petting zoo experience will provide another significant experience for the residents and staff to participate with.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
