Annie, was awesome with all of her knowledge and working with the kids and keeping their attention! Adults loved the animals just as much as the kids did... Annie is a sweet, generous and great person so very happy she was able to do our party!!
"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).
