About
We Bring the Zoo to You!
"Parties with a Purpose!"

I have suffered from some serious health issues this past year: Due to complications following eye surgery a year and a half ago, I have lost the vision in my left eye and am unable to drive--this has been devastating to someone whose love and livelihood for the last 24 years depends on traveling. Last October I became critically ill with a still undiagnosed disorder, but have recovered sufficiently to begin a very limited, and very local schedule (Wilmington , De. and immediate vicinity). I have had some success with hiring drivers, but they are expensive and can be unreliable. I have worked with several clients who , in exchange for providing assistance with transportation (using my vehicle, my gas, my insurance), receive a $25 discount.

"Annie's Menagerie: We bring the ZOO to YOU!" is a traveling small animal petting zoo (turtles, bunnies, hedgehogs, and a whole lot more!) for children (AND adults!) and services parts of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.

Our mission is to offer animal lovers of all ages and abilities the chance to get up close and personal with unique critters, to create lasting memories through an interactive (and funny!) hands-on presentation, and to focus on educating children about the wonders of wildlife.

The children get to pet, hold or feed almost everything I bring with me. At the same time he will learn many interesting facts about each critter, how they raise their families, what their lives would be like in the wild, how to care for them as pets, and so on.

They also get to see a chinchilla take a dust bath, a turtle roll over on command (really), cheer for their favorite in the hermit crab race, and MUCH more!

Educational and FUN!

The kids will talk about it for years to come! I am now being asked to bring my pets to the birthday parties for the children of the children I did Birthday Parties for 20 years ago!

I am USDA licensed, fully insured, clean federal criminal and child abuse background checks, and celebrating 24 years of delighting animal lovers of all ages and abilities with my amazing pets!

"Pay it Forward!" Campaign: Parties with a Purpose!--Initiated 1/01/2014 in celebration of my 20th Anniversary in appreciation and gratitude for all the support I have received throughout the years. Each month, I donate a portion of the proceeds from each show I do to a lesser known children's/animal charity/non-profit. By hiring me you will also be supporting a wonderful organization dear to my heart.

Please see my web site and Facebook page for more info and some cute pictures!

Note: REVIEWS and STAR RATINGS
I have been in business since 1994 and strive to give 150% to my clients. This has resulted in a 5 STAR rating from each and every client over the years...with one exception:
Without getting into any details or placing blame the 6 zero ratings I received were from members of the same family for a single event 2 years back.

I have worked very hard for 24 years to achieve the excellent reputation I now have and 5 STAR customer satisfaction (please take the time to see all the other reviews here, on my Facebook page and on my web site under testimonials).
Thank you!

Annie's Menagerie was a big hit at our backyard party for 7 to 10 year olds along with their parents. All of the kids were engaged and enraptured with Miss Annie's animals. With all of her exotic animals the one that got the most "oooo"s was the bunny. Go figure! But the big hit with the adults was the hedgehog. It seemed they all felt the urge to pet him. The hour long presentation went by quickly and none of the children lost interest. Miss Annie had lots of fun facts and stories about the animals that kept kids and parents sitting at the edge of their seats.

After a shaky start (she had a problem with her car) We had a wonderful time! Annie's Menagerie was everything I hoped for and more. Annie's Menagerie kept the children and adults mesmerized and she was extremely knowledgeable and patient. She was well organized, pleasant and kind to the critters, and the children. I would love to have her back again!

"All's well that ends well!" What an adventurous day! Especially the car ride with Raven! Did you see the Uber guy's face when he saw all the animals? Priceless! Thanks for having me and my critters! If you DO have me back I would like to offer you a big fat discount for being such a good sport!

Annie was asked to visit us for our 9 yo daughter's birthday party. She was prompt, organized and exceedingly pleasant to both the children and their parents. Her animals absolutely delighted the girls (and the adults). They loved the opportunity to touch the chinchilla, ferret, and hedgehog, plus they learned a little about the animals themselves. She was well worth the investment. We recommend her highly.

My Mother booked Annie's Menagerie in the beginning of March. On March 9 she was paid in full to come out for my daughters party on April 30. Annie had all of my contact information and on March 30 called my cell phone and we briefly discussed time, date, location, etc. After that call I had not heard from Annie again so I assumed everything was under control since she claimed to be a professional. Annie never showed up on the day of the party and worse, didn't answer when I called to ask where she was. She called me back 4 hrs later to blame me for not giving her my address. Now she is refusing to refund our money. All around an extremely unprofessional experience.

This review: This person has flooded my business review page on FB with lies, harrased me for the last 4 days, and now is attempting to extort cash from me to remove their slanderous posts/comments. 1. I was given NO address that day or any time after that despite my repeated pleas and attempts thru Gigmasters & emails right up until the nite before (9 pm). There was NO response. Her excuse: in a car accident that week and "forgot". (My fault??) 2. I had 3 other parties that day, did not get the message til that evening, called immediately, and she screamed profanities. 3. I have offered to reschedule at her convenience 4. Please see all other reviews: all
