Exhibit Rates & Details

Live animal presentations are currently only available to Vermont and New Hampshire business and public locations, and cannot be held in a private residence. I do NOT have a public facility that is open to the public, and all programs are offered as traveling-only exhibits.

Travel/prep fees are determined based on location and additional factors pertaining to the exhibit type and help to cover necessary additional expenses.  Additional time for pictures, questions, and hands-on interaction is included with all program offerings.

Exhibits MUST be booked at least 30 days in advance, payment is due in full on or prior to the day of the event.

For outdoor events, temperature must be at least 65F and not exceed 85F with shade provided and no high winds or rain. The safety and comfort of my animals is #1 priority for ALL event types, and I reserve the right to refuse or cancel an event if the health or safety of the animals is at risk. Submit an inquiry for complete health & safety details.
