Dear Great American Entertainment Co...

Went to the WA Evergreen State Fair yesterday and visited your petting zoo. Wow! What an wonderful experience. Best petting zoo ever. Reminded me of when I was a kid when animals and people were actually allowed to be together! So frustrating when we go to fairs and petting zoos and the handlers won't allow you to touch their animals. And it was FREE!  Thank you, THANK YOU! The staff was so relaxed yet diligent in cleaning up poop and insuring the well being of both animals and guests. WOW! Kids had fun and I was thrilled to pet wallabies, llamas, fawns, piglets and all the other amazingly well-behaved animals. How do they all get along so well? Whatever the secret is, THANK YOU! I hope you will be back again next year?



Your petting zoo is the best ever. I went to the one in Orange County (Southern CA.). I could have spent the entire day there. Got some excellent pictures. 


One genius goat was just waiting by the food dispensing machine. When people put money in, he pushed them out of the way and ate the pellets right out of the machine. A much smaller goat could never reach where the pellets came out so he was standing on top of the hay to get the sympathy vote. 


I was especially impressed with the variety of animals. I had never seen where children (and adults) were also allowed to brush them. 


I hope you come again every year. I will be there. I will plan it so that I can spend at least 1 hour there. Had a great time. Your animals are clearly well taken care of.

Good afternoon,

I am writing to congratulate you on the wonderful experience that you afford children and adults by providing a petting zoo experience.  My friend and I attended the petting zoo at the recent Orange County Fair in California and we had a great time there.  The animals were clean and happy and the animal carers were knowledgeable and attentive to the animals' needs.

This is a great idea to educate people about animals and also to foster better animal/human relationships.

Well done!
