The residents of Waverley Lodge, based in Romsey, Hampshire were treated to a unique and exciting experience last week with a visit from ZooLab! This interactive animal encounter brought a variety of fascinating creatures to the doorstep of the care home, igniting curiosity and sparking joy among the residents.

From creepy crawlies to cuddly companions

ZooLab's team of expert rangers brought an amazing array of animals for the residents to meet. From creepy crawlies like insects and spiders to slithering snakes and a cuddly gerbil, there was something to pique everyone's interest.

Pixie steals the show

While all the animals were met with curiosity and fascination, one furry visitor stole the show – Jackie's dog, Pixie! Pixie, along with her mum and dad, joined in on the fun, bringing a dose of canine companionship to the event. Even those hesitant about the exotic creatures couldn't resist a cuddle with Pixie.

Learning and connection

The ZooLab visit wasn't just about entertainment; it was an opportunity for residents to learn about different animals, overcome potential fears, and connect with something new and exciting. The gentle guidance of the ZooLab rangers ensured a safe and positive experience for everyone involved.

Laughter, smiles, and lasting memories

The day was filled with laughter, curious questions, and heartwarming moments as residents interacted with the animals. These encounters sparked conversations, rekindled memories of childhood pets, and created lasting memories that will be cherished for a long time.
