5 Tips to Start an Austin Petting Zoo Business
If you're interested in learning how to start an Austin petting zoo
business, you should first be aware of the challenges that await
you. Taking care of animals could be a lot of fun, but might be quite
harder than you think.
No matter how many nature shows or documentaries you have
already seen on television, nothing beats having real, live animals
in your own backyard; or in this case, in your acres and acres of
Luckily, I'm here to give you a heads up on how to start an Austin
petting zoo business. You don't have to follow everything in detail
just as long as you understand the important points.
Tip # 1: Take Care Of All The Legalities.
Starting an Austin petting zoo business is no small feat. There are
many legal processes you have to go through first, depending on
where you intend to build your petting zoo.
Some of these requirements include registering not only your
business, but perhaps some of your animals as well. Keep in mind
that some places prohibit the existence of certain types of animals.
As daunting as the paperwork seems, it will all be worth it in the
end. In case certain issues pop up, you have the right documents to
back you up.
Tip # 2: Have Enough Land For Your Animals.
You can't squeeze all your animals in a small barn. Make sure there
is enough space for both the animals and the people.
Be mindful that some animals have a prey-predator relationship.
Don't keep these animals in the same vicinity. Some types of birds,
for example, may be threatened by the existence of other birds.
This can lead to extreme stress and even death. So do your
research well and ask the help of an animal specialist or expert.
Tip # 3: Avoid Black Market Transactions.
Bringing in new animals may be a little pricey, but don't let that
tempt you into purchasing an animal from a suspicious source.
Buy your animals from a licensed vendor and make sure they come
with all the necessary documents. Buying from an unknown source
could lead to complicated situations.
If you want to know how to start an Austin petting zoo business,
you're going to have to learn how to do things right.
Tip # 4: Have A Vet Present Around-The-Clock.
Once your Austin petting zoo is good to go, don't forget to get
yourself a dependable veterinarian. Vets are necessary in case one
of your animals gets sick. After all, you don't want an outbreak to
happen in your petting zoo now, would you?
You should also build a clinic and a rest room for your visitors. In
case one of your guests (and they would most probably be kids) is
scratched or bitten (hopefully not, but we'll never know), you need
to have a veterinarian around to handle the situation.
Remember that word-of-mouth is very powerful and one bad
experience might ruin your whole business.
Tip # 5: Pull Out Sick Animals From The Zoo.
If one of your animals gets sick, you have to have a barn ready for
it. Sick animals should not be allowed to interact with other
animals, as well as with your guests. And as previously mentioned:
word gets around. If a visitor chances upon a sick animal, get ready
for a wave of animal activists banging on your door.
These are some of the points you have to understand if you want
to know how to start an Austin petting zoo business. However, the
real work begins once your petting zoo is set up and you settle into
a new routine.
