St. Patricks Catholic Primary School, based in Wolverhampton undertook the HugglePetsCIC Animal Assisted Intervention Programme to help improve the wellbeing of their pupils following the pandemic and closure of schools. Having chosen the 'Anxiety and Low Mood' six week programme for their pupils, they noticed a considerable difference in the moods, behaviours and overall wellbeing of the children within a couple of weeks of attending our sessions.

Feedback from Pupils include: 

Jasleen, with Barbara the Bearded Dragon  Elliott, with Roachy the Cochroach  Archie, with Gary the Snail

I was nice to see different animals like a stick insect, I LOVE HUGGLEPETS! - Maisie, 10 years old 

It's been helping me feel braver and I can tell and talk to grown ups about how I feel. I feel happier most of the time.

Isabella, 7 years old

Feedback from the Therapist include: 

Maisie engaged well with the sessions...and felt able to talk about her emotions, the animals seemed to have a positive impact on her confidence in the group. 


We are pleased to have been part of these positive changes with young people who are struggling with their mental health.
