  • A sensory-friendly environment with reduced noise and activity.
  • A chance to interact with the animals in a comfortable setting.

Gratitude and Recognition:

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the PNE for their generous support, gifting us over 400 spaces for people on the autism spectrum and their families.
