The Mission of the Animal Express is to teach people about the animals that we share our world with!  We use fun, hands on educational shows to help pass on our passion for the animals we work with.  By creating unforgettable events we are teaching others how to respect the animals around us.  Some of our animals are rescues or donations that now call our zoo home.
