We bring friendly farm animals or reptiles to visit you,
your event guest, and your students.
What We Do
We provide an opportunity for hands-on experiences with a variety of our friendly animals at the location of your choice. You can choose from one of our packages that include farm animals, reptiles, amphibians, insects or a little of both. Types of events can range (but are not limited to) birthday celebrations, school and daycare visits, city events and street festivals, pumpkin patches, weddings, and photography opportunities. We have great customer service, loads of experience and we love, love, love our animals!
Let's Talk About Covid
From March 2020 to June 2021, we were closed to in-person visits to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. For 16 months the animals spent their time lounging around wondering where all the people went! With the vaccination and safety protocols in place, we finally feel it's time to start our in-person visits again! We were so excited!
If you are interested in having us on-site but are still taking covid cautious precautions, do not worry. Every employee from animal care, the office staff, and animal handlers is fully vaccinated. Our animal handlers stay home if they are ill, and will reschedule your event. We still wear our masks when we are around guests. If you would like us to take a coivd test when we arrive at your site, that is no problem. We ask that you provide the quick test and pay for the non-refundable travel fee in advance of our arrival. If you have any questions about this please contact our office.
We still ask that in an effort to keep our animal handlers healthy so we can avoid a shutdown due to a covid outbreak, anyone who wishes to wear a mask inside the petting zoo is much appreciated!
Our Mission in What We Do
We, at Little Explorers, are professional educators who have a passion for animals and their positive influence they can bring to others! We strive to share this through our educational programs and gentle interactions with our animals through hands-on guided activities. We are committed to helping our guests reconnect with wildlife by building friendships with our animals and practicing empathy and kindness towards these sentimental beings.
How Do We Treat Our Animals?
We believe that how we treat our animals is a reflection of how they treat us. The old saying "Do unto others as others would do unto you," is a great philosophy that we live by.We try our hardest to keep their feelings and well-being #1 in our minds with each action we take. They are first and foremost our pets! Their health & safety are our first priorities. We ensure that their enclosures are well maintained with clean facilities, fresh water, and nutritious food.Our staff is always watching out for the animals to ensure that they are happy and healthy. Plus, it helps to be cuddled with every day, too!
