All my class got to hold several animals were able to ask lots of questions to develop their learning. Lynn was informative, warm and adapted her visit to suit our needs. I was particularly impressed with how she catered for our SEND children. Overall an experience myself and the children will never forget. The smiles on their faces were priceless.

  • FAQs | Animals in Mind | Northampton

    FAQs You Asked, We Answered. In an Animal Encounter, how many Animals do we usually meet? This can depend on the number of people at the encounter and type of animals, but on average we meet eight different, amazing animals. In Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT), can we chose which Animal will be involved? Absolutely. Sessions depend on the voluntary participation of both the person and the animal. Obviously, if the preferred animal is not well, or is not willingly participating, we would work with the assitance of another animal by mutual consent with a willing animal and the child / person. What if I am not satisfied with Animals in Mind? We have never had a complaint, and AiM pride ourselves on meeting everyones needs. We are members of the Society of Companion Animal Studies and comply with their code of practice. If you feel for any reason that we have not cared for you / our animals, we welcome feedback directly to us by emailing enquiries@animalsinmind.uk. The animals are coming to meet us at an event, can we pick our animals? You can most certainly request favourite animals, and of course animals you do not want to meet. Working with animals means that we must put their welfare first and this means we can not 100% guarantee a specific animal will be present. For example, if an animal is moulting / shedding it's skin (like a snake), this can be a vulnerable time for the animal, so we do not handle the animal during this time. We do have lots of lovely animals and therefore it is highly unlikely that a similar animal will not be avaialble and happy to participate in the encounter. How do we prevent disease? A big question - please listen to our short video here on how we prevent disease. Can we meet the animals outside? Animals can be outside, depending on the weather conditions and time of year.
