Nursing Homes and Senior Center

Traveling Petting Zoo for Nursing Home Animal Therapy in Ohio

Jungle Island Zoo LLC provides a mobile petting zoo for senior centers in Ohio. Pet therapy is a low-stimulation form of therapy for senior citizens, especially those living in nursing homes. Pet therapy can help increase mental and physical activity, as well as increase individual self-esteem.

Because it’s not always possible to have pets living in your senior center, our professional animal experts are here to bring their benefits right to you.

We take pride in our passion for native wildlife, alternative and domestic livestock, and exotic animals. We enjoy sharing our love of the animal kingdom with others in a safe and organized environment!

Our petting zoos are the perfect entertainment for children and adults. When we visit your nursing home in Ohio, we will select various animals to interact and entertain your group safely.
