Request Rocky for Your Event!

Rocky is available upon request to show up at your next event! All requests are first-come, first-served and reviewed by the Advisor for Team Rocky to ensure the request is clear, concise and safe for Rocky to attend. Additionally, please be aware that Rocky always comes with at least one Handler. Handlers serve as Rocky’s eyes, ears and voice since Rocky himself does not speak and is also available to help take photos, give suggestions and care for Rocky and his wellbeing. We also take into account the length that Rocky is requested to be out at an event (for example, it is unrealistic for Rocky to be out for hours at a time) so please be courteous and thoughtful when asking for Team Rocky to show up!
