HugglePets in the Community is a Community Interest Company (CIC) established in 2018 to help motivate, inspire and empower members of our local community through animal-related therapy and initiatives. Our community is at the heart of everything we do, we are passionate about what we do for our local community and we want you to be part of it too!

Through our animal therapy focused work, we support and work alongside individuals and groups to improve mental health, combat loneliness, challenge behavioural issues and promote psychological well being. Our projects focus on working with local people and incorporate social integration and skills development for children, young people and adults through emotional and social wellbeing sessions.
