Animal Handler  

New Joy Farm is a traveling party rental company looking for someone that can work part-time on weekends at events and birthday parties. We provide pony rides, unicorn rides, and a petting zoo for events mostly in central and northern NJ.  Typically events are on Saturdays and Sundays but we also occasionally have weekday events. If you're not afraid of animals and would love to work with them, this is the perfect opportunity. Whether at a festival, birthday party or corporate event, we love to make families smiles.  Our animals bring joy to both parents and children.        

We are looking for Animal Handlers to work with ponies, goats, lambs, chickens and pigs.  Regarding the ponies, you will learn to groom them, get them saddled and loaded on the horse trailer. Once at events you will make sure the area is suitable for riding.  While giving pony rides,  help children on the pony and walk the pony around using the lead line. While giving the rides, children are  inquisitive so you will need to be interactive with them.

The petting zoo is with the rest of the animals. The Animal Handlers will set up the barriers for the animals at the parties.  They will  unload and load the animals for transporting to and from each event. During the petting zoos, we allow the children to feed and pet the animals properly. Children and parents are supervised while participating in the petting zoo. 

No past experience is needed.  We will train each handler. 

Requirements

Must be children and people friendly
Must not be afraid of animals (ex: horses, ponies, lambs, goats, pigs and chickens)
Must have transportation
