A Thank You from Countryside Manor of Bristol


"We at Countryside Manor of Bristol enjoyed your Pet Therapy Program that you brought to our facility during National Nursing Home Week, enhancing our theme of 'Cruising Around the World' 2012. The residents were very excited to actually see a llama up close, to be educated on them and to pet a 'real live' llama named Jack. The products that made from the llama 'fur' i.e.: sweaters, scarves, etc., were beautiful and the large photographs of the llamas added a lot of 'hands on' stimulation to the activity. What a perfect and unique program that actually comes to you!"

"Thank you so much for making our special week so much fun!

-Katheryn Fabiaschi - Recreation Director

A Reference Letter from Children's Discovery Center in Torrington

"Children's Discovery Center has had the pleasure of visits from Debbie Elias' Country Quilt Llama Farm since 1999!"

"Debbie is extremely professional while presenting her program. The story and activities are age appropriate and entertaining. The children are allowed to pet the llama if they wish, under Debbie's watchful eyes. She will teach the children about the llama's diet and habitats. The program is entertaining and education. It is something we look forward to each year."

-Barbara Storrs - Center Director
Children's Discovery Center, Torrington



A Letter of Recommendation from Hill and Plain School in New Milford

"Deb's llamas are gentle, intelligent animals that are so child friendly. They presented programs to our preschool and kindergarten children. Our older school children keep asking when they will see the llama program! We will surely need to invite Deb and her llamas back to our school."

"I would highly recommend 'Hooked on Llamas' as a very worthwhile school program."

-Nancy Nahley - School Librarian
Hill and Plain School, New Milford



A Testimonial from the West Hartford Public Library in West Hartford

"I cannot describe the amazement of the children who walked into our room, and there was a llama sitting quietly on the rug! When he stood up the children could not believe their eyes at how tall he was! A wonderful presentation, don't miss it!"
