Whatever the age of your child, a birthday petting zoo is a great way to celebrate a new year and entertain guests. Before you decide to include this type of activity in your festivities, make sure you have the space for it. You’ll also want to let your invited guests know that there will be live animals at the party. This can help people plan if they have any allergies or fears. The petting zoo will be a lot of fun for children of all ages and their adult parents and caregivers.

Many different types of animals are available for events like this. You can look for ponies, mules, goats, sheep, even pigs and cows. Most of the places that deliver a portable zoo will have plenty of animals to choose from. Party guests can take pony rides, feed chickens, and engage with the animals in many different and interesting ways.
