Small Petting Zoo

The small Petting Zoo is our most popular option. 5 species are included, but you’ll probably see more than 5 animals. The best part is that you get to pick which animals we bring! You can let the birthday boy/girl pick her favorite animals, and we bring them to you! We have Mini Horses, Mini Donkey, Mini Cow, Mini Pig, Goats, Sheep, Rabbits, Chickens, Ducks, Turtles, Snake, Guinea Pigs and an adorable fluffy white dog who LOVES children. This option is popular because the set up space is small enough for any back yard, or even the garage on rainy days! We travel FREE in the St. Louis area, and within 60 miles of our location.
