Our Mini Pet petting zoo is versatile by being suitable for both the young ( a favourite in Child Care Centres and home birthday parties) and old (great for Pet Therapy at Aged Care facilities) with minimal space required for the set up, which makes it great for any type of event.

Little kids (as well as the grownups!) love the chance to cuddle and feed their favorite animals! We offer young children the chance to finally meet the stars of their favorite books and TV shows, whilst teaching them about the animals and why we need them in our lives
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our friendly animals! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom. Why not combine the Mini Pets with the Farmyard or Bush Babies for the perfect educational experience? For programs on life cycles visit our Rabbit Rearing or Chicken Hatching web page.
