Atlanta loves Critter Parties!

We know this because we do Critter Parties every weekend. The interactive live demonstration and holding lasts for 45 minutes or so, with an additional 10-15 minutes at the end for pictures (and maybe a little extra holding). The total event will last one hour. To book your event, use the link below.

Book your party by clicking the link below. 

 

 

Below are our available animals


This is where you can decide which animals you would like to come and celebrate with you. Though they are all nice and accustomed to being around groups, not all of them are 'handleable' (meaning some will be held by AF experts only) but can be viewed or touched depending on the species.

Please look through and indicate on the form which animals you would like for us to bring. We are more than happy to decide for you, if that works best, but we wanted to provide an opportunity to choose. Those that have been to Critter Camp may have a special relationship with certain animals, and want to make sure they can come celebrate.
