“I feel happiest in the company of animals and most fulfilled while caring for them”

 At GIA, we ensure an enriched environment and care for our animals through maintaining good hygiene, offering a biologically appropriate diet, engaging in play and exercise, providing medical assistance and by showing lots of love and affection.  

Simultaneously, interacting with and caring for animals also provide children a wonderful opportunity to strengthen qualities of compassion, empathy and attention. I see this as crucial to help children grow into well rounded human beings that approach the world with concern and respect for others.”
