We can all agree that there is something special about a cuddle from a furry friend. It gives a sense of calmness, love, loyalty, friendship, companionship, and connection.

RFBI Coffs Harbour Masonic Village residents have been soaking up the puppy love during regular weekly visits from Rusty. Rusty is a beautiful 11-week old Bull Mastiff puppy who has been visiting the village since he was 8-weeks old with his owner, Samantha, one of our Leisure & Lifestyle Supervisors.

During his first visit he was a little shy of the many people who wanted to give him a cuddle, but since then he has been lapping up the attention and acts like he owns the place. He has even managed to sneak into a few beds for some cuddles and a nap.

The benefits of pet therapy for seniors are many and Rusty will always be a welcome guest in the village.
