Residents lap up visits from pets

South Western Times

Cute and cuddly animals caused an outbreak of wide smiles and cooing at Ocean Star Aged Care last month when Saving Animals From Euthanasia Bunbury volunteers brought kittens and dogs to visit residents.

After the inaugural trial’s success earlier this year, the sessions became locked in as a monthly affair as part of the aged care centre’s effort to promote community interaction.
