“These folks are doing a Great Thing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a small habitat with quite a few animals which have been rescued for various reasons from the local Nevada/California area.
Facility is extremely well maintained, staff is helpful and informative. It is great fun watching their resident black bear play with his toys and tear away of the creative devices in which they hide his food.
Good place to bring your kids!

“Great Family Event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you like animals, and who doesn't, this is a great place to take the kids. It's both fun and educational, and a cause worthy of supporting.

It is so nice to see such beautiful animals so well taken care of. The educational aspect is a bonus. Cheetahs are beautiful and their stories are so interesting. Loved it.
