About Animal Company

The Animal Company offers a comprehensive range of trained animals for hire, for use in Film, TV, Advertising and still photography. Uniquely many of the animals we use, are privately owned by us. However if we do not have what you are looking for, The Animal Company has access to hundreds of different animal species via our network of animal experts throughout the country.

As part of our animal hire for tv & film service we ensure that all animals are accompanied by experienced handlers. Animal Welfare is of the up most priority, which is why we work closely with Defra and Animals in Transit to ensure the highest standards of care. This means we always provide healthy, happy animals. We supply exotic, traditional farm and domestic animals for hire.

The Animal Company is the UK’s fastest growing animal hire firm, supplying trained animals for Film, TV, Media & Events. This year we have launched which has proved a great success and enabled us to work for some of the top names in the business. The Mini Farm is a mobile petting farm, aimed at introducing animals to children who may not ordinarily get the opportunity to bottle feed lambs or pet rabbits and chicks.

The Animal Company is an independently owned and run business, based in the Peak District, Derbyshire. Our aim is to always put the needs of our customers first. With years of joint experience in training, animals for hire, run by Nathan Anderson-Dixon from his small holding.

Each animal has its own unique personality and habits, our experienced animal handlers, and our partner companies take time and care in getting to know each creature. It is important to understand each animal’s needs and characteristics. If you don’t see the animal you want on our site, simply contact us.
