Baby Animals Visit Allerton House in Weymouth

Sitting still and regal, a Silkie, enjoys the soothing strokes of resident Joann McLaughlin.

Pets and small animals make people of all ages feel good. Residents at Allerton House at Central Park know this is true and were delighted for a chance to visit with and pet a variety of baby farm animals, including bunnies, kids, and piglets from Farm Visits, a traveling petting farm. In older adults, studies have shown that pets can relieve stress and even help to fight off depression. It’s easy to see by the faces of residents that a visit by the baby animals is truly beneficial.
