This is definitely the route that you want to go in order to create a special atmosphere and memory that will last forever. Of course, you will want to do your due diligence when it comes your search because you want to make sure that you rent a very reputable petting zoo where the possibility of something going wrong is minimized. That is why we created this guide for you. If you become very familiar with this guide we promise you that you will end up hiring the most professional petting zoo in the Tampa area for your big birthday bash.

So, let's get started. Have you ever searched for a petting zoo before? We didn't think so. The first stage of your search will be to find some high quality candidates in the Tampa area. We suggest that you try and harness the power of the world wide web before you do anything else. Do a Google search for “petting zoos in the Tampa area.” You should be able to peruse through each website with no problem. Check out their portfolio showing past clients enjoying the petting zoo. Also, read up on how they take care of the animals in terms of their shots and cleanings. If any of the petting zoos strike you as have a huge upside and being of a high quality, then we suggest that you start writing down each candidate that you think has potential so that you can check into them further at a later date and time. Don't forget about the people you talk to on a regular basis because they can also serve as a potentially productive source of information. Ask your family, friends and coworkers if they have ever hired a petting zoo or experienced one that they would call a high quality experience. If so, get the name of the petting zoo. Call each petting zoo up and find out if they have your birthday date open on their calendar. If they do, it is time to sit down and talk.

When interviewing each petting zoo representative, you will want to make sure that you gather as much information as you possibly can so that you can make an informed choice in which petting zoo would be the best one for you. Start by talking about who will clean up after the animals. After all, these are animals and anything is possible. Any reputable company should assure you that they will clean up anything and everything left by the animals to the point where you won't even know they were there. Make sure that they are licensed and insured because you want to make sure everyone is protected just in case. What exactly will the children be allowed to do with the animals? Will it be petting only? Brushing? Feeding? Is this experience completely safe for the kids? What is the cost to rent the petting zoo and for how long? Have them show you pictures of past setups with the children interacting with the animals. One of the candidates should emerge based on a number of criteria. At that point it will be time to book the petting zoo and look forward to all of the kids having the time of their lives.
