Small Animal Birthday Party Handler (Fairfax Virginia and greater north Virginia area)

compensation: $150 per Party Event plus Tips.
employment type: part-time

Do you like working with animals and kids? If yes, then this is the job for you. We provide education and entertainment for children's birthday parties and for school programs.

Our animals are clean, domesticated, docile creatures accustomed to being indoors/outdoors and around children of all ages. They include rabbits, guinea pig, tortoise, bearded dragon (small lizard) Small Bird (TBD) Chinchillas, Sugar Gliders, and Hedge Hog. Since we work with kids, we only use the cutest and safest animals. We do not use farm animals.

We do our parties on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00, 1:30. 4:00.
We normally do 2 to 5 shows a weekend. We pay $150 per show, plus you get to keep your tips. Tips are from $25 to $50 most shows. Please note that not all customers tip. You will make about $350 to $800 per weekend. We will provide all the animals and caging, but you will have to care for them and keep them at your home. Most of the time it will only take a small space, and many of the animals can be kept outside.

This is a part-time weekend job position. Training is provided and no prior knowledge required.
