Bolton - Animal Adventures

336 Sugar Road

Ed and Brenda Laquidara have spent their entire lives working with animals, from farm animals to exotics. In 1997, Ed and Brenda turned their hobby of caring for animals into a full-time professional animal education facility. Animal Adventures is located in Bolton, Massachusetts. We take in exotic animals that are no longer able to be kept by their current owners. The animals that come into the facility are either kept at Animal Adventures and used for educational programs, or are placed at other animal facilities. Animal Adventures delivers thousands of educational programs throughout New England each year.


In an ongoing effort to provide a unique and memorable learning experience for all audiences, we strive for excellence in our animals, our presentations, our educational curriculum, and our business practices.

In keeping with our high standards none of our animals are wild caught. We rescue abandoned, orphaned and neglected animals and provide them with a high-quality life while using them to inspire and educate you. We also receive animals from specialty breeders.

This place is amazing. Super knowledgeable staff. You can get up close and personal with a lot of the animals. Small, but that means the animals get a ton of one on one care. The people complaining about small enclosures have their hearts in the right place... But a lot of these animals are rescues/rehabs with specific needs and everything is pretty standard for a facility like this. The animals all appear to be healthy and happy.

Unique selection of a wide variety of animals. My family and I got a private tour by a very knowledgeable employee and got to pet a bunch of animals. I'd never touched an armadillo before today. My three-year-old loved the playground though I thought it could use some TLC. I also wasn't impressed by the size and quality of some of the animal enclosures. It did seem that the employees loved the animals though.

We had a wonderful experience with Bil! She was so engaged and kind and patient with us while we took our time going through our extreme tour! I honestly would come over and over again just to go through this wonderful tour! Everyone we met was so nice and clearly loved what they do! So worth the money and my sister loved doing this for her birthday surprise!

This place was great! My kids loved interacting with the animals (and I did too!) And there are enough animals and activities there to keep you busy and having fun without tiring out. Ast time we went to a zoo, we were exhausted by the time we were done. I love that you can get, feed, hug many of the animals and the workers were great. Our teenage daughter said she wants to come with us next time...there will definitely be a next time!

I went with my girlfriend and we had an awesome time here. We had a great guide named Alex (with the tattoos) and did the extreme package. It was definitely worth it because we got to pet so many exotic animals that we have never pet and may never have pet. Overall, this was a awesome place with lots of exotic animals.
