Carefully selected for gentleness and calm demeanors, our animal friends are treated with respect and care and provided with quality diets and spacious, clean habitats. We're proud to be fully USDA licensed and to exceed standards for sanitation and animal well-being. Order up a ZOO FOR YOU and we'll set up an awesome 10'X20' petting zoo with lots of amazing animals, including familiar barnyard friends pygmy goats, chickens, geese and a charming Kunekune pig, as well as exotics such as wallabies and a Patagonian Cavy. ZOO FOR YOU is available for events lasting from 2 hours to all day. Great for birthday parties, company picnics, customer appreciation days, block parties, festivals- you name it! We also offer a variety of ENCOUNTERS packages so you may select just the right show for your special event. Typically an hour in length, your guests will interact with a select group of fascinating creatures and hear about their origins, habitats and more. These programs are excellent entertainment choices for birthday parties, pre-schools, educational enrichment, nursing homes, club meetings and other small gatherings. Whether you choose ZOO FOR YOU or an ENCOUNTER, you can be sure your guests will have a great time!
