Petting zoos can make people sick if precautions are not taken. To help you reduce the risk of potential illness associated with your petting zoo, the Huron County Health Unit has developed an information package [PDF] and an online application form for organizers. The Huron County Health Unit’s package is a condensed version of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s petting zoo recommendations.
