We came here after reading all the reviews of being able to see the animals up close. We saw a tiger and a bear and a very cute baby coyote that only came in to view for the employee but then ran away. Other than that we didn't see any of the animals except the birds which there are a... More

The price is ok. I was disappointed. The place had really bad odor. I realize it's a zoo however it was worse that normal. The Bears were close. They are beautiful I just felt the cages was way to small for them as well as the tiger cage. Uneventful.

We have been to this zoo a few times. We always leave happy. Employees and volunteers are always willing to answer any questions and get the animals out for you to get a closer look. It is small but it is good family time.

I took my daughter and 2 grandchildren to the zoo while they were visiting from out of state. We had so much fun. The property is clean and has a nice lay out. It is easy to walk through. The animals are well fed and look and act healthy and happy. My grandchildren learned much about the animals that are... More

This zoo is for rescued animals. It is small and you can take as much or as little time as you want to go through it.

this is a smaller zoo and it is sort of sad in my opinion as all the animals are either orphaned, or found injured, or otherwise brought in. Still you can get close to the one's that are there.

I loved this place! This is a fairly small zoo with many rescued animals that are from the local area. It is easy to navigate and great for families with small children.

We never had any intentions of visiting as we did. To knowing existed. However upon knowing such a gem was here we signed up as a member. Such a great sanctuary with truly great volunteers. A true find even if was by mistake. Will be a must see any trip we make. Remember it is a sanctuary, not a zoo!... More

Fabulous mix of RESCUE animals that have been injured, abandoned, or abused! Small enough to get up close and personal with the animals residing yet very informative on how they came to be "residents" at this facility and all the volunteers that make their daily lives fulfilling!

I took my nieces and nephew there and to be honest, although I've driven by a few times I had never been. This place has eagles, leopards, peacocks, miniature horses, tigers, mountain lions, black bears, coyotes...It took us some time to get through all the exhibits. You need to check it out. It's much more than a small town zoo!
