TABLE TO TOUCH
$50 for one table with all 3 animals (+ mileage)
We will set up a table with our larger snake, medium sized snake and a bearded dragon to share and let our guests hold.
Believe it or not, the snakes are THE MOST popular animal at every Petting Zoo, every single time!
LOOK AND LEARN ONLY
$40 for one table with all 4 animals (+ mileage)
We will bring a table with our Packman Frog, "Geiko" Gecko, Pink Toed Tarantula and either a turtle or tortoise. These are much loved at petting zoos but are more fragile so, no touching. We still have a lot of fun looking and learning about them at the Petting zoo!
Mileage fees are total miles driven round trip according to Google maps starting at our farm located at 24769 475th Ave in Dell Rapids, SD.
We will drive up to 60 miles one way to get to a location, driving further than that puts a lot of trailer time and stress on the animals beyond set up and petting zoo time.
Mileage rate; $1.50 per mile driven
Hand washing stations with soap and water must be provided according to best health practices and insurance requirements. If not available on site, a hand washing station will need to be rented and provided on site before any animals are due to arrive.
We do provide Treat cups at 2/$1 at longer events. If you would prefer to not have them sold at your event but want them provided it will be a $30 charge.
It is the customers responsibility to ensure all state and local guidelines are being followed and a petting zoo is allowed by all laws and ordinances.
There will be an extra charge for blacktop/concrete/hard surfaces as the animals will need a substrate put down, and cleaned/removed which is an added cost and added labor. Also, extra equipment and extra work will be needed to secure fencing (when applicable) when stakes cannot be put in the ground
A fresh water source that can fill 5 gallon buckets needs to be located within 100 feet, if not there will be an extra charge of $50 for filling and hauling water tanks
All outdoor petting zoos are at the mercy of Midwest weather. We will do our best to accommodate moving the petting zoo “in bus” when weather does not permit outdoors but that may also adjust what animals can come along, travel and access to the general public already stresses our animals and we will not put them in a detrimental condition. We do provide a generator when access to electricity is not available, as well as shade tents, fans and spray bottles to help mitigate heat and some heating sources can be prided for colder weather.
We will do our best to bring the animals requested.
Like humans, animals get sick, hurt, refuse to come out of their shelters for loading or can have other issues that prevent them from having their best days and so we cannot guarantee any animal but will do our best to include them if we are able or add extra animals when one cannot attend.
A minimum 50% non-refundable deposit is required to book/reserve your date and time. The rest of the cost is due upon arrival at the venue. If events outside of human control (i.e. bad weather) occur, we will work with you to reschedule your event.
Local sales tax is not included in prices listed above but will be included unless tax exemption paperwork is provided.
