Volunteers from the community will be helping Latham Centers, Inc. on May 8th by participating in an old fashioned barn-raising to welcome our new, miniature donkeys to their new home in Sandwich. Yes, donkeys!
This therapeutic approach, called Asinotherapy, is modeled on a program currently in operation in Germany where adults with Prader-Willi Syndrome are interacting and caring for these gentle animals, learning care-giving skills and patience along the way.
For more information on the donkey project, or on Prader-Willi Syndrome contact: Executive Director Anne McManus, Program Director Mike Marchese or Director of Training Chris Gallant at Latham Centers, Inc., Brewster, Ma. 508-896-5776.
"Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms." ~George Eliot
