About Me

Suzanne Richards


Since my childhood I have had a great love for animals and am very fortunate to run a business that embodies this dream.  The knowledge I have gained over the years from rescuing, treating and working with many different types of animals has put me in good stead for being in such a diverse field like the film industry.
Action Animals has some very talented trainers who have made it their life’s work to perfect their very specialized craft. We love a good Challenge.

Our Philosophy

At Action Animals we believe that the welfare and happiness of our animals is paramount and our training methods are based on positive reinforcement; so you will always get the best performance from content and healthy animals.

We ensure that there is a set savvy person accompanying all our animal handlers to set; this saves production time, money and unnecessary frustrations.

We are relentless in our pursuit to find that perfect animal for your production; we have an extensive data base and are affiliated with many animal associations. We love the challenge of training various types of animals to perform a specific action when your production requires it.

Action Animals will try to make your production as cost effective as possible and our prices are very competitive.
