Head to a nature centre for a chance to meet the animals and explore the outdoors, go to a farm to feed the animals, learn about animal conservation with rescue animals at a shelter or rescue centre, or try to a zoo or petting zoo to get up close with wild animals, reptiles, or farm animals.
The animal party places here host parties for kids with a wide variety of animals: birds, like macaws, parrots, owls; reptiles, including lizards and snakes; mammals ranging from small “pocket pets” like chinchillas and hedgehogs to skunks, , and the ever-popular dogs and cats—even some rescued exotic animals like lemurs, caimans, and kangaroos.
