Hey... are you insured?
Yes - to meet legal requirements Jaws n Claws have Public Liability Insurance for £10million. You are very welcome to ask for documentation of this if required.
Can I choose which animals are brought along?
The welfare of our animals is paramount and due to the nature of livestock we cannot guarantee which animals will be available on any particular day. However, you are welcome to make 'special requests' and we will do our best to accommodate them. Of course if there is an animal you would prefer we didn't bring (e.g rat, spider or snake) please let us know and we promise NOT to bring it!
How far in advance do I need to book?
We are in great demand, especially at weekends, so to avoid disappointment please give us as much notice as possible. However, even if you think you've left it a little late please ask, you may be lucky and find we have the date you want still available.
Kids get all the fun! Can you do adult parties?
Yes - why not? You don’t have to be young to enjoy animals! Animal encounters are perfect for every age and we are regularly asked to provide the entertainment at 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th etc. birthday parties! Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
How much space do I need to provide?
We can work around whatever space you have available. You may like to hire a hall or similar venue if there will be lots of guests. However, we can usually organise a brilliant party in the space of a normal living room.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept payment by cheque, cash or bank transfer.
What is the maximum number of guests I can invite to a party?
Ideally under 20 children is best, although arrangements can be made to accommodate more with another ranger at a small cost. This helps with everyone getting to handle as many animals as possible and also cuts down on the amount of time people are sitting without an animal.
Can you provide entertainment for corporate functions?
Yes - Animal Encounter presentations and display are both ideal for larger events. We can work around your requirements. Bespoke packages are also available. Please contact us to discuss your particular requirements.
Do you have a Risk Assessment?
Yes - please feel free to ask us for a copy! We also have a comprehensive Health and Safety policy.
What do you provide for the workshops?
We provide all materials, and equipment needed for our workshops so the only things you will need to provide are hand-washing facilities... and children!
Which workshops are suitable for which keystages?
How long do the workshops last?
The workshops last for 1 hour or just over depending on the amount of children, but can be altered to suit your needs.
