Please take not that we can not bring all the animals to your venue. It also depends on the animal, some hibernate, some are occasionally a bit off the weather . . . However we always have more than enough to choose from.
SaveMe Rescue Animals
Should you choose the SaveMe rescue animals to entertain your children, you would be supporting the SaveMe Reptile and Exotics Centre. The majority of the funds will go towards housing, feeding and medicating the animals who reside at the rescue centre.
The advantage of using the rescued animals: most of these animals come to us in a horrific state, neglected and/or abused and most often very ill. As a result we have to hand treat these animals, we have to medicate, bandage, force feed, bath, clean wounds, put ointments on . . . Often the treatment takes quite some time. Because we have to handle these animals daily, they become completely tame. And this makes for ideal interaction with children. Besides most of our animals are already so used to being handled - they actually enjoy it!
We teach the children about the animals at hand, how to treat animals, and how to take care of their own pets. We teach them how to act when coming across animals, how to prevent getting bitten in general. How to respect animals, and to appreciate and preserve our fragile planet. We take pride in teaching children not to be fearful of snakes, but to see them for the beautiful creatures that they are.
We do not allow the children to feed the animals. Human hands are then associated with food and can motivate biting, as the animals may think the are getting fed.
None of our demo’s are planned as a presentation. We let the children take the lead, we let them ask the questions and teach them what they want to know. Its what makes each session different and interesting.
