Pets as Therapy (PAT)


There are proven physical and mental health benefits to being around animals. Extensive research has shown that the presence of an animal can have a positive impact on physiology and psychology and so help to reduce stress levels. Stroking a pet for example, has been shown to lower blood pressure and the heart rate, bringing a calming effect. In this way, pets may be used to provide emotional support as well as provide a service..

Children who visit The Hub enjoy taking care of our resident tortoise, Marlo, and our tropical fish.
