ADDITIONAL FEESOutdoor programs pose real risk for the animals from catching a cold to over heating, being attacked by wild or domestic animals, escaping and being bitten by disease transmitting insects. In order to reduce this risk we charge an additional $100.00 fee for outdoor programs.
Multi Level Fee: Programs not held on the main floor such as in a basement or on a second or third floor will have an additional $25.00 fee added if your building has an elevator and $50.00 extra for locations that we have to climb stairs. This fee reduces the risk of having to hold up the elevator or in some cases reduces the set up time in libraries or schools that only have stairs. It also increases our liability because animals would be located in 3 different locations and cannot be watched properly. It would also require extra staff to stand and move all of the 15-20+ boxes of animals and props we need to set up for a program. This is also a work out for the performer before and after a program to walk up and down several flights of stairs in schools or libraries that don't have elevators. Please indicate if you will have programs on another floor and describe your layout before we arrive.
Programs held after 5pm within 100 miles of our location pay an additional $50.00 and programs held beyond 100 miles must book a hotel room for us and the animals or pay an additional $100.00 and we will book the hotel.
Schools, libraries, camps or youth group organizations in the same area or system can get a reduced rates if you call and reserve multiple bookings or share dates with other locations.
