“The startling benefits to children with autism of regular contact with alpacas – although largely unexplained – is unequivocally proven.” DR HILARY DEVINE

“Alpacas impart a sense of calm intelligence that cannot fail to be transferred to those spending time with them.” ELIZABETH E FRANCOMBE

“Just an hour spent with these charming creatures did more for me that a month of weekly sessions with my therapist! I can’t recommend it enough.” J. FINNIGAN


The rare and exotic alpaca is a creature of antiquity that is rapidly gaining popularity around the world. Highly prized for their luxurious coats, the alpaca has been considered a treasure of the Andes Mountains for over 6,000 years.

Alpacas are New World camelids and look like small llamas or long-necked camels with no humps, especially when recently sheared. They have shaggy necks and camel-like faces with thick lips, pronounced noses, and long ears. Their large, expressive eyes seem to exhibit both wisdom and childlike curiousity. Easily domesticated, alpacas are friendly, gentle and curious.
