My name is Debra Chennels, I started rescuing goats some 25 years ago whilst working with mental health. I found the goats gave people great reward just seeing them and being able to walk them. I started therapy goats 3 years ago but I’ve always used goats for people with any kind of illness. I started taking them to care homes which have been amazing- the reaction I’ve had.
I’ve learned so much about goats over the years but you never stop learning –they are amazing animals and understand more than we realise.
I have now moved to Wales & plan to open up a therapy camping site for colleges where people can spend time with the goats getting plenty of therapy and chill out when they need to with these lovely animals.
