Our 8 year saw Animalia at the Indiana State Museum and immediately wished that she could have an Animalia Birthday Party. After speaking with Ratul, a board member, we immediately scheduled Animalia to come to her birthday party and be the main attraction. It was a smashing hit. We scheduled two 45 minute sessions and it flew by while capturing the attention of 15 8 year olds the entire time.

The animals were spectacular and Joel and Zach were fantastic with kids and with the size of the group. Joel was unbelievably accommodating as during the first 45 minute session, it started to pour and we moved into the garage. Animalia provided almost 8 animals and each was a smashing hit.

We would definitely do this party again and strongly and whole heartedly recommend Animalia for birthday parties.

What can I say! Animalia (Ailigh and Joel) are outstanding and the most dedicated and hard working people who spend days and nights caring for all kinds of animals. Have been to many of their presentations and whether children or adults the presentations are so well thought out, lots of energy put into the programs and the audiences certainly learn a lot about domestic and exotic animals. They also have a wonderful group of volunteers who are dedicated to Animalia and know this not for profit company could not do without them. Thank you for all that you do Animalia.

My daughter volunteers for animalia. We recently moved here and it has given her the chance to meet new people and give back to her community. Working with the animals has inspired her to consider a career that would allow her to spend her life helping animals. Animalia has changed her life for the better. Not only do they save animals and rehabilitate them they educate and inspire people to do the same. They are helping save the world, one person and one animal at a time.

Learning is never, ever boring when you attend an Animalia event. There is always something new to see. With wild animals, you never know what might happen and that makes each experience that much more memorable. The staff and volunteers are extremely knowledgable and dedicated, both to the welfare of all wild and domestic animal life. They even know how to handle the human animals as well. :-) Everyone should take this opportunity to visit an Animalia event. You may never get this close to a wild animal ever again. You won't be disappointed. Grade = A++
