For The Love
of Animals!

As a child, Seth spent all his time learning about animals; at 19, he adopted his first parrot – Zoe the Macaw.

In an effort to socialize Zoe, Seth would regularly volunteer at his local Long-Term Care Home. These interactions enriched the lives of many senior residents (and Zoe), and became a positive experience that steered Seth into a lifelong career.

Animal Advocate
at Your Service

In 2011 Seth turned his passion for animals into a business – Hands on Exotics. Throughout the past decade, his business has grown into an outreach organization that offers programs including:

  • animal assisted therapy,
  • animal education, and
  • the facilitation of animal actors on film, television and in fashion photography.

Seth currently provides a safe home for over 80 adopted animals.

Seth is a delight to work with. We hire him and his animals regularly for commercial, editorial, and entertainment photo and video shoots. Working with animals on set is always exciting, yet can be unpredictable and challenging, but Seth’s patience, respect, and connection with the animals has always delivered. Seth’s energy and positivity on set makes him one of the most captivating beings in the room… perhaps second only to the animals!

I recently used Hands On Exotics for the last video project I worked on. I asked for some snakes and a bird. As someone who is afraid of both of these animals I was terrified, but Seth was AMAZING and made me feel so comfortable. I am definitely calling again on the next project. 10/10

I am a Creative Director in Toronto and I have been using Seth and his animals for almost 10 years. Anytime I need an animal, I call him. The Animals are well trained and well taken care of, never had an issue. Always professional and on time. Would highly recommend, especially with snakes, birds and cats.
