Michael Poggi has more than 30 years of experience rehabilitating injured exotic animals. This makes him one of the foremost experts on handling a variety of animals including tigers, leopards, cougars, zebras, owls, foxes, raccoons, cranes, storks, wild Egyptian geese, pocket monkeys, capuchin monkeys, owl monkeys, marmoset monkeys, rare endangered cottontop tamarins, mini pigs, large white bunnies, micro bunnies, rare albino iguanas, baby alpacas, lemurssnakes, fancy exotic birds, ponies, exotic petting zoo animals, Siberian lynx, and more.

Michael works with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the eventual release of hundreds of animals that he has taken in and treated, often at his own expense.  He is widely known for his compassion and enthusiasm for birds, mammals, and reptiles alike.

Michael first fully realized his passion for caring and learning about exotic animals when he interned as a veterinary assistant during college.

Michael especially enjoys exhibiting his exotic animal collection to future enthusiasts and educating the public about the importance of worldwide wildlife conservation efforts. He also raises and sells marmoset monkeys (also known as pocket monkeys) as pets.

Our family animal photo gallery includes most all of the animals currently residing at our facility in south Florida called Poggis animal house. Many of our beautiful creatures have been rescued over the years from the exotic pet industry. Some animals may not currently be available for events. We are licensed by the state fish and game and the USDA and are closely regulated. Poggis animal house takes first priority in making sure the animals are healthy,  happy, and well adjusted. The animals are not trained to do tricks or forced to perform. We encourage only natural behaviors using praise and positive reinforcement. Michael and his family have rescued thousands of exotic animals over the pat 30 years and have paid for their care, medicine, food, and housing with no help from the fish and wildlife or the government. The animal educational parties helps to offset the cost of hundreds of rescued animals that is paid for personally by Poggis animal house.
