Our Therapy Rabbit

George Phoenix, our therapy Rabbit arrived at the Phoenix Resource Centre on the 16 August 2019. George was given time to settle in before meeting some of our customers on his first day!

Our customers with learning disabilities were excited to meet George, and he spent some time sitting on laps being petted. It was amazing to see how they interacted with him. Some of our customers with physical disabilities, frailty and dementia came to see him and they thoroughly enjoyed watching George.

George spent the weekend in his outdoor hutch, being checked on by staff who popped up to see him.

Each day, George joined various sessions where he was well received. The customers had George on their laps, where he is always inundated with cuddles, kisses, and being brushed.

After spending time with individual customers, George will roam around the room exploring his environment getting up on his favourite armchair, at times he can be very naughty - for example, chewing into wires. The rooms have to be George proof!

George also has a respite carer, one of the members of staff, who takes George home most weeks/weekends.
