Animal Magic at Downshaw Lodge

Residents of Downshaw Lodge in Tameside had some very special four-legged and furry visitors.

A group of animal owners brought their pets along to the home, for an afternoon that was thoroughly enjoyed by residents and staff alike.

Residents had plenty of opportunity to feed and cuddle the animals, including silky-haired guinea pigs and a friendly dog. Some of the pets even performed tricks, much to everyone’s delight.

We noted that the visit was a real mood-enhancer for many residents and have invited them to come again. We are also hoping to arrange some funding to purchase some pets for the home.
