Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo

Come Be A Part Of Our Family

When we moved our family to Canon City in 2018, we had no idea that a year later we would be running a petting zoo out of our backyard. We started adding animals to our space and inviting friends, family and neighbors over to watch them play. When we saw the happiness, joy and giggles our animals brought others, we knew we had to expand these good feelings to the rest of the community. 

Our goal is to provide people with a better understanding of the animals with hands on animal education and knowledge on how to better care for animals. But most of all, we want Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo to be a place where you can relax and soak in all the love that our animals truly love to receive and give. 

Curious about what kind of animals you can interact with on your visit? Check out our animals to see just a few of the furry friends we have here at Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo.

In our 3 years in this wonderful town, we have gone from owning no animals to having our own Ol' MacDonald farm on our property. And we consider each of our animals to be part of our family. But by visiting our farm, engaging with our animals and choosing to spend your time here, that makes you part of our family, too.

We hope you leave here with a little more knowledge about animals than you came in with. We hope you take with you the refreshed and happy feelings from spending time making memories with our animals.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide and promote a place of peace, love and care for the human-animal bond, through education and interaction. 

A Day At The Petting Zoo

Meet Our Furry Friends

All of our animals love to be pet, scratched and loved on by our visitors to the farm. We are proud to have over 100 animals at our petting zoo for your family to enjoy. All of our animals are taken care of and loved every day. We have wallabies, chickens, goats, alpacas, rabbits, donkeys, ponies, ducks, pigs and more. During your time here, feel free to pet, scratch and love on all of the animals who call this farm home.

Animals can provide great comfort and relaxation, so we hope your soul feels refreshed after visiting Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo in Cañon City, Colorado.

In addition to a petting zoo with hundreds of animals, Shepperly Farm is also happy to host your child's birthday party. We have a party room with vintage, coin-operated arcade games, concessions, additional yard games and more. You provide the cake and snacks- we provide the fun! Spend your party time petting animals and enjoying the outdoors and then close it out with some good, old-fashioned arcade fun.


What a wonderful experience for adults and children! Thank you for sharing your time and farm to teach children the love of animals.

What an awesome and educational place to take the kids to! The owners were so welcoming and knowledgeable. We got to physically pet or hold all the animals. The animals were all very friendly and some even posed for pictures.
