Are there any petting zoos around here that a 2 year old would enjoy. Just looking for a place for her to see some animals - it's too cold to spend the day at the zoo.

Hi R.,
maybe you could contact local private animal sanctuaries. They usually welcome visitors if you call ahead. There are rabbit, turtle, cat etc. sanctuaries. Also I think if you try to contact some of those guys who advertise in dallas child magazine about animals to parties are usually educational rescues, maybe they would let you come in.
Hope this helped a bit.

Hi R.,

There is a petting zoo at Fairfield Farms in Plano at Parker Rd and 75. The children receive a bucket with food to feed all the animals. They have sheep, goats, chickens, ponies (to ride too), ducks, geese, etc. My 2 year old just loved it and everytime we go past it she reminds me about our visit - and that was in June! Enjoy...
