When you visit the Kelly Miller Circus, we encourage you to take a moment and appreciate the beauty and majesty of the animal members of our circus family.  We are very proud of them.  They are our friends and fellow performers; and are very important members of our team.

Six members of our company are employed strictly for the care, comfort and welfare of our animal partners.  These professionals are dedicated to their care and well-being, making sure they get the most nutritious food, grooming and plenty of human interaction.  Time is made for exercise both mental and physical and for play.  Every 30 days our animals receive a veterinary exam (how many pets receive this attention?).

We maintain contacts with animal professionals and veterinarians worldwide so that we are kept abreast of the newest and best trends for the care of our animals.

The Kelly Miller Circus exceeds all federal animal welfare standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the Animal Welfare Act.  We are regulated by and inspected frequently by the USDA, state and local authorities.  The Kelly Miller Circus is a member of the Outdoor Amusement Business Association and have committed to the standards of animal care set by this organization.
