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!

This is such an amazing zoo! All rescue animals - you can really get good close ups and talk to zookeepers. They will tell you when feeding times are - answers questions. There is Wallabie Encounter - and Splash pad for young kids - petting zoo - play area - green grass. The Peacocks wander freely. A Gift shop with... More

The zoo was nice, got to see the feeding of the tortoise, lion and bear. Our grandson thoroughly enjoyed it. In and out in under 2 hours. Price isn't bad although they don't offer military discount to military retired only active duty. I can say I don't see many active duty in the Prescott area. No eating facilities so bring... More

Very small in comparison to other zoos. It is really more of an animal rescue than zoo. You can walk around the entire zoo in about an hour or less. Low entrance fee.

You will be lucky to see actual animals, mostly pictures of the animals in the habitats. Save your time and try Bearizona, or out of Africa, both are excellent and well worth it.

mnm72275, Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry you did not have the experience you hoped for. As we're a "Zoological Sanctuary" and truly here for the conservation of the animals and education of the community, we do not force our animals to be on display during any set times - for their own happiness, they're allowed to roam...

Grand daughter loved it. Its small but a good experience for the little ones. My granddaughter liked the 4H area where she could pet the goats. The animals seemed very happy and willing to entertain.

If we lived in Prescott, we'd get the yearly pass and be here every week! You can get so close to the animals and watch the tiger and bear get fed. My child had a blast and we were there for hours. For very small kids, you may want to find out which animals to avoid after feeding time (dead... More
