Christmas critters came and entertained residents at Dounemount Care Home in Macduff.
Zoolab brought in rats, centipedes, snakes and a tarantula for residents to get up close and personal with them.
Kay Robertson, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed getting hands on with the critters. Most of them were brave enough to touch them, even if it was only brief. Pet Therapy like this is a special experience for our residents because they get to handle creatures they necessarily wouldn’t meet on a day to day basis. It was great seeing all of their faces.”
