I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Julie and Grace did at my daughter’s birthday party last weekend. They were very organized and competent and Julie entertained us all with her vast knowledge about all the critters she brought. We learned so much and I am so glad we got the opportunity to get to know your organization.

Oh my word! Honestly… your 2 employees were simply outstanding. The one who did the speaking was so engaging and shared so much education at the same time. What an incredible experience for all of my daughters 17 guests… and myself! To handle that many children could be difficult, but the presenters commanded the children’s attention- not by nagging, but by engaging and peaking their interest in the critters and asking them questions, or telling a cool fact. We were at 5:30pm booking- last of the day. They still had tons of energy and didn’t come off as the end of their day and wanting to just leave. They were completely punctual and we had just a lovely time. My husband ran like a baby when the tarantulas came out, so I had to be the one to wear them… but he put his big boy panties back on and allowed the snake around his neck. Kids loved the huge fluffy bunny and the icky bugs too. Well done USRS!!! You have put together a great show and … it “shows”! Thanks

I just wanted to email and thank you for such a lovely presentation. My daughter’s party was a success and that one hour of quiet 15 girls all wide eyed and eager to ask great questions to the presenter was so pleasant to see. Our experience was phenomenal and the presenter volunteers were knowledgeable and great with the kids. Thank you again for a great experience. I am definitely going to spread the news of your good works and can’t wait to visit the urban safari society very soon with my daughter very soon as she could not stop talking about all the animals she saw.
Thank you so much.

We had the Urban Safari Rescue Society come do a birthday party for my 4 year old this last Saturday in Maple Ridge, and the girls did such a great job I wanted to write to express my appreciation!
I feel like an idiot for forgetting their names, but the girls were absolutely amazing! They kept a small crowd of young children and toddlers captivated the entire time, and they were pros at dealing with interruptions and the general rowdiness that goes along with that sort of thing. Many of the parents commented to me that they were very impressed at how good your team was with the kids, and I agree- it’s not always easy to remain gracious when wrangling children, but it was clear that your team is not only experienced, but that they genuinely love both what they do and people.
You far exceeded my expectations, and we are already talking about having you back next year.
Thank you again- you truly made my son’s big day extra special for him.
