WE HAVE A HOME HEALTH BUSINESS IN INDIANA. THIS WAS OUR 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY AND WE HAD A "CARNIVAL" FOR ALL OF OUR STAFF & CLIENTS. OUR CLIENTS ARE UNABLE TO GET OUT OF THEIR HOMES AND VENTURE OUT FOR VARIOUS REASONS. THE ANIMALS WE A HUGE HIT WITH THEM. THEY LOVED HAVING THE CHANCE TO SEE ANIMALS. THEY LOVED BEING ABLE TO FEED AND PET THE ANIMALS. WE REALLY APPRECIATED THE WORKERS FROM JUNGLE ISLAND ZOO PROVIDING THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THESE INDIVIDUALS. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
I have had the honor of working with Kim Osting and the Jungle Island Zoo for several years and I find they are clean, reliable and a real asset to any event. They bring beautiful, well cared for animals and the children and adults a like love to see, feed and pet them. I highly recommend the Jungle Island Zoo!
In the midst of bounce houses, bungee cords, ziplines, and so-called foods tinted with red 40, a little corner with God's creations gently calls to the festival-goers with adorable animals nuzzling palms and fingers of the littlest children for carrots and bits of grass. To see the sheep, goats, calves, kangaroos, llamas, and ponies at our annual Eid Festival has been a joy and blessing. Our patrons enjoy the pony rides and feeding the animals, especially parents who want something serene to enjoy the day with their families. Jungle Island Zoo has provided us this serenity for several festivals. They have been quick to respond, easy to schedule with, and reasonable in their pricing. We look forward to working with them each year.
For several years now Jungle Island Zoo has provided a petting zoo and pony rides for our annual International Festival. The staff is courteous and professional and the animals are always a big hit with the children. Ben and Kim Osting do a wonderful job and we look forward to having them back each year.
The reindeer brings such a magical touch to our Holiday Open House! The animals are just beautiful, well groomed and everything is handled in the most professional way. We definitely will schedule our reindeer from the Jungle Island Zoo every time.
I have used Jungle Island zoo for the last several years to supply the animals for our churches outdoor live nativity portrayal.
The reason I would recommend them is because they offer an all-inclusive service. They provide the transportation, loading and un-loading, the animal confinement (staking or fencing) and animal handling during the entire production. Basically they take care of all things relating to the animals. The stock that they provide has always been good looking, well groomed and under control. With all this said the number reason that I would recommend them is because they are dependable. They do what they say they will do and they do it on time. A dependable outfit that I would recommend to anyone.
Jungle Island Petting Zoo was an asset to our Apple Festival. All the visitors enjoyed visiting with the many varieties of animals represented there. Ben and Kim were great with the public - we're looking forward to having them come again!
This summer, Kim and Ben Osting brought animals from their zoo to our library for a family program. Besides the wonderful array of animals, the presentation to the kids and parents really caught their attention. I especially appreciated the Osting's ability to adapt as it began to rain and the program was forced completely inside -- except for the camel, which was a real crowd pleaser! We had a lot of positive feedback from those who attended and will have them back another time.
Our Vacation Bible School contracted with Jungle Island Zoo to come for an evening as part of our Holyland Adventure. Kids today just don't have much exposure to animals, so we thought this would be a great addition to our program. The Zoo Crew was FANTASTIC! They exceeded our expectations by far. They were patient with the kids, explaining about the animals numerous times to numerous groups as they came through. The adults were surprised at the amount of new information they walked away with - they soon realized it wasn't just for the kids! The animals were clean and well cared for. The baby camel and the joey were very successful and they snake certainly made an impression! Kids are still talking about it months after the event."
"On the business side, Jungle Island Zoo is very good about communicating with their clients. We knew what to expect when they got here and were able to be prepared for them. They were fair-minded and very responsible! When we first heard the price, we were a little hesitant, but the event was well worth it. They certainly put on a quality display.
I am writing regarding the Jungle Island Zoo that we had at our Kidfest event at the Civic Center in Lima. This was an excellent animal display with various different animals in which our spectators could pet and feed. They were very well kept and clean. The staff was very accommodating and worked well with our attendees and was very informative when asked a question. We are booking them for our event next year and will continue our relationship with them."
