Welcome to Animal Equipment by Stoney

Animal Equipment by Stoney LLC was started after Stoney McDonald left the company Animal Capture Equipment Inc. in December 2008. Stoney learned his trade from the late Richard Fuhrman (2011) in the 1990s and worked for him until the end of 2002. Mr Fuhrman's company is now gone also. The company Animal Capture Equipment Inc went out of business in 2012.

Stoney is looking to do high quality equipment for all animals. We are adding new equipment as quickly as possible - like the new style snake tongs that have now come out. We will end up doing all the replacement nets and new nets that fit Fuhrman Diversified nets (flex nets) and Animal Capture Equipment Inc. nets (versa nets).

Stoney is looking forward to building any and all equipment that you may need or require. Please feel free to contact him either by e-mail or phone as to any questions you may have. He is looking forward to working with old friends as well as new friends in the animal world.
