Animal Rentals



Growing up in a family that raised and trained a multitude of animals, Bill’s experience began at an early age. In fact, it was his duck that played the role of “Chelveston the Duck” on WGN’s Ray Rayner Show.

Bill began working as an organ grinder man in the late seventies, traveling around the country to festivals, county fairs and other large events. His act caught the attention of a McDonald’s Corporation executive, and he was hired by the country to work trade shows and company events. In the early 1980’s, Bill began doing film work with his animals, with one of his groundhogs appearing in Columbia Pictures’ Groundhog Day with Bill Murray in 1993.

Today, in addition to the numerous shows provided by Animal Rentals, Bill continues the tradition of organ grinding with the world’s last organ grinder monkey, Mindy. Together, they travel to colleges and universities, state and county fairs, and corporate events.
