This was hands down the best birthday party entertainment we have ever had. The kids (10-11 yaer olds) were utterly fascinated (as were the adults!). The presentation was interesting, funny and educational. The birds were hilarious, the python and tortoise impressive, and the furry animals were soooo cute and sweet. Not to mention there is just nothing on earth like seeing a Canadian Lynx casually loping down the stairs into your family room. Ironically, the children's favorite by far was the skunk--arguably the commonest animal there. Why? Because they could hold and cuddle it rather than just see or touch it. It was a truly memorable birthday party. We got great pics of the birthday girl with a HUGE snake hanging around her neck, as well as holding a fennec fox, a kinkajou, etc. We also really like that AFA is a rescue organization so the money we paid is going to support the care of these fascinating animals that would be put down when people could no longer care for them if Kim and her team were not there to rescue them. A great value for the money too--the charge was very reasonable. I would recommend Animals for Awareness to anyone and we will very likely hire them again for other events. .

Professional, Educational, and Fun for All
We hired Animals for Awareness for a birthday party for my children turning 1 and 3. Both children and adults were mesmorized by the exotic animals, and the presenter was calm and patient around the 70+ people in my house. Since it rained that day, we had to set up in my living room, and she couldn't have been more accomodating. She made sure we got photos of the kids with the animals, which were amazing, and made sure she got the adults involved too. If you are looking for affordable entertainment for all ages, I suggest Animals for Awareness.

Very entertaining, informational & fun! BEST birthday party!
Very unforgettable birthday party for 9 year old daughter and 25 friends and classmates! Lauren was great and made the birthday girl feel special. Kids were SO interested and excited, they sat quietly and listened intently. Everyone loved the interaction with the animals and sitting on the tortoise was the highlight of the day!

Phenomenal Show and Staff
Animals for Awareness made my daughter's birthday party a day she'll never forget! The array of animals was so cool. Wasn't too sure about the snake, but Kim was right! Zeus was a huge hit! The animals were well-behaved. Kim and Jack were professional, knowledgable and courteous. They also managed to keep even the younger kids' attention.
I have to say, the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids did. The show was fun, exciting and interesting. I fell in lobe with Canada lynx Kodiak!
Will hire you again in the future! Thank you!

Even though it rained that day the show was the highlight of the party. Very informative and entertaining. Adults along with the kids enjoyed the interaction with the animals. Had members of family asking for their info afterwards. Would recommend!!
