“Not much to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

There wasn't much to see and the person who took our admission fee was very pushy about us making an additional donation.

“Good for a rainy day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This organization cares for creatures in an amazing way. The education center has videos and plaques and picture, but you see no live animals. Including the gift shop, we spent about an hour here. It's a very good cause.

“Great rainy day activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This place does awesome work rescuing injured animals. Don't expect to visit these wild animals though, they are tucked away in the animal hospital area. There are web cams though. Great educational experience learning about the rescue and rehab process. Donations strongly encouraged. Nice gift shop too!

“Excellent Educational Opportunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Yes, just like everyone says you do not see the animals because they are trying to rehabilitate them and release back to the wild. Its a wonderful organization and I applaud what they do. The visitor center is fantastic and very informative. Would go back a gain and I will support them in the future.

“Be sure you know what to expect - you won't see live animals - just video. Great mission to support!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Many folks go expecting to see the animal patients - but the mission of this incredible hospital is to rescue and re-release wildlife. They can't do that successfully if the animals spend too much time around people. Be sure to find out when a volunteer is speaking and take in the talk. Ours was a bit too long (1 hour) but really good. (At 30 - 45 min it would have been GREAT :-) They do have good exhibits - a chance for you and your kids to play doctor and diagnose patients using real xrays, lab reports and lots of briefing done in interesting ways. Also have a great animal related (about animals) gift shop. Well worth the visit (and they have a group rate for large family groups) if you have the right expectations.
