Petting Zoo

WHAT IS A PETTING ZOO?

Make memories that will last for a lifetime by having a petting zoo at your next event! Everyone, no matter what their age, enjoys this unique opportunity. Our petting zoos have been brought to birthday parties, city festivals, corporate events, and much more. Our professional handlers will bring and manage the petting zoo pens.

We offer a three pen petting zoo with animals that include yak or water buffalo calves, goats, a donkey and alpaca. The animals that attend may vary depending on availability. Petting and pictures are permitted from outside the pen. The space needed to accommodate the pens is 30′ X 10’ and it can be set up inside or outside with a tent when necessary.

For the health and safety of our animals, we can never guarantee that one specific animal or species will be available for your event.

AVAILABILITY

Petting zoos are available every day throughout the year. 

Each event is for two hours with additional hours available.

For the safety and comfort of our animals, petting zoos are available for up to five hours per event time per day. All events must be located within 100 miles of the park address. Overnight stays for multiple day bookings are not available. Handlers will travel from and return to the park each day.

The Sloth Interaction was incredible. Got it for my son for his Birthday and had plenty of one one interaction with Padawan. Staff was super friendly and informative and answered all of our questions.

Interesting and not what I expected. I thought it would be a tiny zoo with nothing I haven’t seen in the local Pittsburgh zoo. We got in at half off as we stayed in the Log Cabin Suits and I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of animals that you could feed by hand and the animals where excited to see you. My kids would definitely enjoy it.

Great way to see animals in a way you rarely get to experience in a regular zoo. More to see than in the Pittsburgh Zoo.
