We are following all guidelines by the states for which we work.

Many of our programs and classes will contain at least 6 live animals. These animals are safe when handled properly, and our educators have many years of experience with these species. However, Animal Wonders will not be responsible if student disruptions or misbehavior causes an animal to react in a protective matter. Animal Wonders does not condone ownership, approve use of, or will ever expose children to primates, wild cats, or other potentially dangerous animals. Our animals are for educational purposes; they are not circus acts or performers. WE ARE NOT THE COMPANY THAT TAKES ORDERS FOR OR SELLS BABY EXOTIC ANIMALS!!! Animal Wonders is fully insured and licensed with the state of Missouri. In our twelve years of serving the community, we have never been tried to exhibit or present our animals as the most exotic, ornamental, or extreme. We cannot stress enough that we are EDUCATION FIRST, we can present to you a very informative and educational program without the ilk of the exotic animal entertainer nor would we ever refer to any of our animals as exotic - never have, never will.
We depend on our programs & donations to help fund the care and housing for our animals, most of which are either rescues or surrenders. We seem to be always taking in new animals that need a home or different situation, their care adds up. If you would like to help support Animal Wonders, it would be greatly appreciated. We are always in need of donations, caging material, lumber, crates, aquariums, straw, & newspapers.
