AROUND 150 people got up close and personal with the small animals at the Isle campus of the College of West Anglia on Saturday.
Newcommon Bridge small animal unit in Wisbech opened its doors for the public to take a look behind the scenes.
There were lots of creatures for visitors to look at and touch, from cuddly rabbits to scaly bearded dragons.
A spokesperson for the college said: “It went well. It was quite busy and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.”
The unit also introduced “Sponsor an Animal” where, for a donation, sponsors receive regular newsletters, a certificate of sponsorship and a colour picture of their chosen animal.
Local groups, including Cats Protection, Greyhound Rescue and Hedgehog Rescue, attended the open day as well.
