Charity number


Nuzzlets is a small Charity based near York. Our objectives are to provide loving homes for unwanted animals and free access to all children for therapy and education. Particularly welcome are disabled and special needs children and children with life threatening illnesses. We offer many services to the local and wider community and are keen to involve the local community in our work. As many of our animals have been mistreated, we try to educate young people about the cost and long term commitment of looking after animals. We run an animal welfare club, offer work experience, deliver talks to the Beavers, Young Farmers, St John’s Ambulance Cadets and school assemblies. We also visit after school clubs and encourage Duke of Edinburgh students to carry out their service section at Nuzzlets. Activities include walking goats and rabbits, goat and rabbit agility, collecting eggs and stroking all the animals. Many disabled, special needs and terminally ill children visit Nuzzlets, either with their special schools, their families or with the children’s hospice. We also take the animals to the children’s hospice; the animals encourage movement and have a therapeutic effect. More recently we have visited deprived family groups and disabled adults have visited us. We arrange children’s birthday parties for disabled and special needs children. Everyone benefits, both the animals and the children.
