Hands on Exotics Show - Saturday 11am & 1:30pm
Experience the Magic of meeting some unique and not so common animals up close and in person!
Saturday, Sept 8th, 2018 at the Community Hall Centre stage.
There will be two live shows - 11:00 am and 1:30 pm
Hands on Exotics is an animal shelter based out of Toronto, Ontario which specializes in the care of exotic animals (i.e. animals other than cats and dogs). The histories of our animals are varied but the vast majority of them started out as pets living in private homes until their owners could no longer take care of them and asked us to take them in. Others were seized by the SPCA or animal services from homes or other places that were not keeping them well or not keeping them legally.
Hands on Exotics, believes that public education is extremely important in helping to raise awareness for conservation issues and responsible pet ownership. Their of program animals are carefully selected for both their temperament and safety – they only bring out animals that enjoy human interaction. It is strictly against their policies to use an animal for outreach programs that would be stressed by traveling or human interaction.
Come to their show to Meet, interact and learn with their animal ambassadors in person!
