Payment Methods Payment is due at the date & time of the show. Cash, Check and all major credit cards are accepted. Credit cards must be approved before show date. A $50% non-refundable deposit is required booking all shows Pony Parties. There is a $35 fee for checks with insufficient funds. There is a $35 late fee for school checks that are 30 days past due.

Transport Expense
All shows will have to add a transport charge to the show type that they choose. This is determined after show site address is determined in miles. For example, most estimated costs into downtown Chicago are approx $35-40. North side of the city are approx $50. South side of Chicago $30-35, far south Peotone/Mokena $30-35, Joliet/Essix $40-45. Indiana $45+. Wisonsin $65+. Transport Expense for shows including the pony is slightly higher due to trailering from second location.

Parking nearby is requested and required for downtown shows. If parking is metered or garage parking is required, any additional fees are added to show cost. Please reserve a spot near your home for downtown shows where parking is difficult, as additional excessive time used to find parking can cut into show time.

Animal Requirements with the COLD and HEAT
Due to the health & safety requirements of some of the creatures, outdoor parties may be postponed if the temperature is not at least 60 degrees. Alternative indoor areas should be considered when booking during times of questionable weather. Garages, basements & screened porches can work great when the weather changes suddenly.

Summer outdoor shows in extreme heat, a very shady area must be available so that the animals can stay cool while awaiting their turn. Summer weekends and holidays fill up FAST, so call early for best availabilty.

Winter indoor shows are still very popular! A tarp is brought to protect your carpet or floor from any animal droppings. Heated garages and basements work just fine too if you don't want the critters in the nice part of your house!

Bunnies * Snakes * Alligators!

Erin would like to remind that:
"This is an educationally based show, so teaching the kids something is just as important as touching the animals!"

YMCA kids were fascinated by an Emperor Scorpion and the unusual Blue-Tongue Skink.
