Animal Assisted Therapy

We are a social enterprise that has started from the desire to support children who need help to correct language delays, attention deficit, aggression problems, lack of self-confidence, difficulties in managing negative emotions, reading problems, difficulties in interacting with others, overcoming phobias and more. Through activities assisted by animals, especially puppies, various benefits can be obtained that can help you become an integrated and friendly person in the relationship with those around you.

Connection and communication with RONA

The social event "Connection and communication together with Rona" took place on May 26, 2022, between 17.00 and 19.00, and 15 children with relationship problems participated.

It was a one-of-a-kind and intriguing experience to have this relationship with Rona, the horse who epitomizes the greatest qualities. Gentle and eager to offer the little ones a journey into the amazing universe of emotions guaranteed by riding.

Following the event, the children learned to have courage, patience, trust, sensitivity, to be responsible and assumed, to believe in themselves but also in those around them, to keep an open mind, and to manage their emotions!

Individual sessions with psychotherapists facilitated interaction and personal development with the pets staying at the resort.

Effective engagement with animals, which sometimes mirrors our own behavior, teaches us more about ourselves and helps us become more integrated, better, more empathic, happier, and more upbeat.

Interplay! FRODO, The Wonder Dog, assists with activities!

FABISS PET RESIDENCE, in collaboration with psychologist Ana-Cristina LUCACI and FRODO, The Wonder Dog, planned the event on September 24, 2022, with the involvement of children from the secondary school in Pădureni commune.

Frodo is a 5-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog who is extremely social and very fond of children. He was adopted when he was 8 months old, and his training is based on enrichment. He loves hiking, adventure, and new places, which is where he gets his energy, which, of course, he shares with those around him!

The children learned a little about the secrets of animal language, how to properly interact with animals, how to communicate with the dog, as well as about non-aggressive communication both between people and with the dog. The event was attended by 13 children.

The partners of this event were the Timar Association and the United Way of Romania Foundation, affiliated to United Way Worldwide, who, together with the animals staying at the FABISS Animal Resort, created a magic of animal stories, from Elmer, the elephant, Sylvester, the donkey, Frederick, the mouse, Stellaluna, the bat, and the fascinating rainbow fish, within the "Education for the Future" Project.

On Friday, July 28, 2023, the children from the Carani Community Centre were hosted by Fabiss Pet Residence, where the little ones were able to experience a hands-on lesson on proper care of our friends as well as proper education and healthy interaction between us and them. Thanks to the dream location, the children were able to use their context memory, managing to assimilate the information much more easily.
 
Who helped us with specialized information in the field?
 
🐶 Those who took care of providing the relevant information for the development of the children present are some members of the Pieces of Heaven Association, namely, Raluca Elena Ceaușu, together with the puppy Mady and the puppy Zombie. The three of them taught us what care means, respect for private space, and how to approach the animals without them feeling threatened or stressed.
De asemenea, am învățat ce înseamnă sterilizarea, unde găsim programe de sterilizări gratuite, în cazul în care nu ne permitem o astfel de intervenție, câți puiuți pot fi salvați anual de suferințe doar printr-o singură intervenție de sterilizare. Am învățat despre personalitatea pisicilor vs cățeilor, despre jocurile potrivite fiecărei rase în parte.
 
How did we manage to stay focused?
 
🐶 Raluca's warm voice and her calm manner gave us a good and cooperative mood. Of course, Mady, along with Zombie, made us stay a team until the end.
We thank all those present at the event, which was carried out as part of the "Magic Hat" project, a project financed by the United Way Romania Foundation and implemented by the Timar Association.
 
Last but not least, we warmly welcome the presence at the event of Mr. Ștefan Both from the prestigious radio station "Radio Timișoara" and correspondent of the daily newspaper "Adevărul", a man with a big soul and who, through consummate professionalism, captured step by step the entire event at Fabiss Pet Residence. THANK YOU!
