River's Rodents and Reptiles is a Community Interest Company meaning it is a non-profit organisation.


The Community Interest Company aims to benefit the community by - 

  • Support the provision of Animal Handling Sessions to individuals and community groups.

    • By supporting people of all ages in meeting animals they would not normally meet, whilst also promoting sensory development.​

  • Help people of all ages to improve health and well-being through promoting sensory development.

    • Stroking and interacting with animals lowers stress, heart rate and promotes a sense of calm.​

  • Advance community awareness of Animal Welfare.

    • Learning about Animal Welfare, which in turn allows people to be more aware of Animal Care.​

  • To develop and deliver training and learning programs in the care and understanding of animals to individuals, community groups and organisations.

    • By increasing personal and collective knowledge of Animal Care, Animal Diets, Habitats, and Anatomy and Physiology. Clear learning outcomes for schools studying animals.​

  • To be financially accessible to individuals, community groups and organisations on low income and low budgets for activities.

    • Clear fixed fee for Animal Handling Sessions. Special offers for repeat business and free to attend Fundraising Events. ​

River has studied animals for 7 years. He has a National Diploma in Animal Care from Hartpury College, a Higher National Diploma in Animal Management from Berkshire College of Agriculture, a First Class Degree with Honours in Animal Management from Hadlow College and a Post-Graduate Degree in Animal Welfare from Moulton College. He is passionate about animals and enjoys sharing entertaining facts about his animals - with the odd cheesy joke!

River set up this business in March 2017 as a hobby business alongside working in hospitality. Over the lockdowns the Online Animal Sessions took off and allowed River to convert a old Horsebox into a touring Animal Unit.
