Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo

Colorado Traveling Petting Zoo

When we moved our family to Canon City in 2018, we had no idea that a year later we would be running a traveling 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 turn your place somewhere 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 our visit? Check out our animals to see just a few of the furry friends we have here at Shepperly Farm Petting Zoo that we can bring to you!

In our 4 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. We hope we leave you with a little more knowledge about animals than before we came in. 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.

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.
