Hands on educational programs featuring wild and exotic animals for any occasion: Birthdays, scouting functions, weddings, schools, daycares, senior citizen homes, pet therapy, libraries, carnivals, you name it!!
Kim and Josh did great! Not only was the show awesome but so are they. Good people. Lots of cool animals to see and interact with. Kim gives you just enough information about each animal without going overboard and did it at a level for children to understand. They were great - so great to us. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat and highly recommended this company. Good people.
Kim was so kind to fit us in her schedule for a last minute event! She did a great job interacting and the show was very informative. She was so patient with a high energy group of 9 year olds!!!
What a fun birthday party we had with Animals for Awareness as our entertainment. They were engaging and interactive with the kids. A great variety of animals was brought. Everything was very professional. I would highly recommend.
The animals were wonderful and the program was very educational and interesting. The kids from our VBC really enjoyed the program.
Kimberly Schilling did an excellent job at our Cub Scout event in Arlington Heights, IL. Her program was very educational, she knows EVERYTHING about the animals she had with her, and very hands-on. Kids loved learning about and touching the animals. Kimberly was patient with the boys who all wanted to touch EVERYTHING, and entertained our 1-5th graders for 1 hour and it was great! Thank you!
This was for my 3 year old's birthday party. EVERYONE (kids and adults) had so much fun. Kim was a pleasure to work with and brought a variety of animals and critters to pet and hold. She also provided a lot of interesting information about each animal. I would highly recommend!
Too chilly to be outside, but there was plenty of room in the living room as each animal is brought out one at a time. A very entertaining and educational presentation. An enjoyable experience for both the kids (ages 2- 12) and the adults. Well worth the price.
What a wonderful show! I've been hosting Cub Scout blue and gold for 10 years now! This was by far the best show! Entertaining! Engaging! Fun, while learning to protect our animals on earth! Thank you!!
We had Animals for Awareness do an hour presentation at my daughters 5th birthday party and we loved it! So many compliments on the program and of course meeting the animals was a hit. I'll definitely consider them for future events and plan to continue supporting their nonprofit organization.
I hired Animals for awareness for my son's 1 birthday party. Lauren arrived about 15 minutes before, and set-up quickly. She knew how to keep the kids engaged, and we were so happy with the presentation. It was way better than we expected! I would definitely recommend!
We had them out in August for my son's 3rd birthday. The kids really enjoyed it and I would recommend them to friends and family. My boys were dressed up with safari clothing and looked adorable in pictures.
We had them out for our daughters 10th Birthday Party! Everyone had a Great time, kids and adults!! Very reasonably priced and all for a good cause! Kim was wonderful to work with! Thanks for making her party a hit!!
I had Animal for Awareness for a one-year birthday party. All ages were very interested. Fun and educational. I highly recommend them for all ages, even adults. We were able to take pics at the end with the turtle.
The staff was great I had a small party. I felt like I was treated with the same or better quality than a bigger venue. The best party for hyper children. the show captured all the children attention. Very reasonable priced
Kept a room full of 3-5 year olds entertained for an hour!
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!
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.
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. .
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!!
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!
