The adventure starts here…
The Quest: animal kingdom. The animal world is far more expansive than can be expressed in words… and even knowing as much as we do about them, there’s still more to know yet, with species undiscovered and mysteries unsolved. We seek to share the amazing nature of some of our planet’s creatures the best way we know how: through live animals, knowledge, enthusiasm, and laughter. Animal Quest offers a variety of animal-related services delivered with just that, namely:
- Live animal presentations, displays, and mini petting zoos for birthday parties, schools, libraries, park districts, senior homes, Scout events, fundraisers… — you name it! Turn any event loose and let out your wild side.
Most of our animals are rescues! Read more about us and our animals in an article by the Chicago Tribune.
Frankie the Dinosaur is now available for parties and events!

Fundraisers & Donations
We try to support our local communities as much as possible. If you need donations for silent auctions, prizes, fundraisers, etc., please contact us. We’d love to help!
We also do:
- Animal ‘rentals’ for television, film, and advertising. Need a good shot of a bug’s mug? Or maybe you need something soft and cuddly to draw your audience’s attention, or perhaps more scales and longer tails? Add a touch of nature to your ad!
