Animals Activities Licence
Anyone exhibiting animals in England must now be in possession of the new licence that ensures they are providing the correct high levels of animal welfare which is inspected by the local authority. As someone working within the industry we proved that we ensure the highest levels of health & safety with relevant inspections of the animals, enclosures, policies, insurances, risk assessments and procedures which were all thoroughly checked. We are pleased to confirm we were awarded the highest 3 year licence and our reference is AW042.
Anyone not displaying the licence and reference is illegally trading in animals and should not be supported.
the serious bit...
What do we do?
We may come across as naturally laid back, fun people however we do take our jobs and responsibilities extremely seriously....
We are Mark & Jerry and we are fully dedicated to offering a unique and fully interactive experience for both children and adults. We are not a big company and don't breed or sell animals - this journey has always been about us choosing to offer a home to unwanted animals and then bringing a selection of those out to meet people.
With experienced handlers at each event we are able to make sure that you are in safe hands whilst also taking care of all the needs of the attending animals. We don’t waste our time buying online accreditation’s as they are never observed or regulated in person. We have been awared a 3 year licence to exhibit our animals and are the only animal handling company with fully qualified teachers as handlers which, along with Marks invaluable knowledge studying his Exotic Animal Care Level 3, means we can also offer a unique learning experience like no other.
Almost all of our animals are 'rescue animals' which is something that has been a passion of ours for many years. Without having any children of our own we think of the animals as our own children and they live with us as part of our weird and amazing family. We do still sometimes take in new animals and always feel flattered and honored when asked but sadly we can't help every animal in need and so do have to say no occasionally but will always put you in touch with the right organisations that can help.

Animal Welfare & Safety is always our number one priority and we follow the Animal Welfare Acts Five Freedoms:
1.FREEDOM FROM HUNGER OR THIRST by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
2.FREEDOM FROM DISCOMFORT by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a suitable, comfortable resting area.
3.FREEDOM FROM PAIN, INJURY OR DISEASE by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
4.FREEDOM TO EXPRESS (THE MOST) NORMAL BEHAVIOUR
by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind (something we work extremely hard to achieve and have lots of success adopting single animals and getting them bonded with their own kind.
5.FREEDOM FROM FEAR AND DISTRESS by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
THERE ARE MANY ANIMAL HANDLERS AROUND THE COUNTRY SO DO TRY TO BARE IN MIND THE FOLLOWING:
Any reputable animal handling company should have DBS certificates, Public Liability Insurance, Risk Assessments and must obtain a Performing Animal Licence from their local authority. When visiting schools they should ideally have both teaching qualifications above Primary School Level (unless only working with Pre-Schoolers) and qualifications within the animal sector.
Why choose us?
We offer unique animal encounters including an Online Animal Club, Live Streaming, Celebrations, along with visits to Schools, Nurseries, Care Homes, Fêtes, Groups, Clubs and more.
