'Animals Fur All' background Information:
Animals Fur All is a family run business that we began after years of medical appointments and therefore needing to work around our children's needs. Both of our children have a diagnosis of ASD and ADHD and we have always found animals to be very good for them. Our children find animals very calming and easy to love, great for learning empathy and responsibility.
We love sharing our animals with others.
Our ponies and horses love what we do and are ready to meet you all.

 

Everyone 16 years and over will need to be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations and show proof on the day.

 

Thank you to VicHealth for their support. This event has been made possible by funding from the VicHealth Reimagining Health grant.
