We are a licensed 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible. We're one of the largest non-profit, no-kill, exotic animal rescues in the United States.

Mark Rosenthal’s “Animal Magic” is a non-profit,
501 (C)(3) organization (I.D. # 20-3596003) dedicated to exotic
wildlife conservation and life science education. Now in
our 41st year, Animal Magic has educated and
enlightened audiences across the U.S. Our unique
blend of exotic animals, life sciences and magic have
made us one of the most sought after acts in the country.
We were even voted Nickelodeon's Michigan
Entertainer of The Year!
Through our ever-popular, live performances, we have
shared our knowledge, respect and appreciation for the
animals that share our planet. Educating the public and
promoting conservation are just a couple of the many
ways we show our commitment to the animal kingdom.
When local animal control officers are confronted with a
dangerous exotic, we’re sent in to rescue the often
illegally obtained “pet.” Our fully licensed sanctuary also
accepts most exotic animals (including venomous
snakes) from private citizens. We're dedicated to
helping those who have discovered that owning this type
of “pet” is unfair to the animal, potentially dangerous and
far more difficult than they imagined.
Just a few of our amazing programs!
Animal Magic has launched a brand new assortment of
specially themed programs. Check the list below for new
adventures but remember, our original Animal Magic
presentation (a fascinating program involving a variety of
animals from around the world) is always available and is your
best bet if you don't require a specialized show!
Endangered (& rare) Species - This is a must-have
assembly if your school is green, or even considering going
green! Who could dream of a binturong entering your school? What about an African rock hyrax (the nearest living relative to the African elephant). We have the only two in Michigan! Please contact Mark for more information.
