I have lived in the Palm Harbor area for 14 years and never visited this place until today. It took a Groupon and a 3 year-old grandson who loves animals to finally explore the place I have driven by countless times. I love animals and have avoided zoos since I was little because I hated to see animals in cages. The animals here are in cages...but these cages are their "homes." They are clean, well cared for and very well fed. The volunteers were all amazing...kind, knowledgeable and committed to the humane treatment of these animals. We met "Pongo," a 15-year-old orangutan that "retired" from showbiz two years ago. He is a beautiful animal and our favorite of all their great apes. The animals have a variety of toys individualized for their likes, skills, etc. The Sanctuary also had exotic birds, goats, alligators, turtles, tortoises, ducks and a big snake. My grandson and I loved the place and we will certainly go back again and again now that we discovered it right in our backyard.
