Opportunity to get up close and learn about animals
Aug 2016 • Family
Our tour guide was a retired teacher. We learned the story behind every animal living at Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue. Tours are Saturday 12 and 2. $15 adult, $10 for children. Children under 4 are free. Credit cards, checks and cash accepted. They also have birthday parties you can schedule for around $300.

Some animals have been owned by irresponsible humans and therefore thru cannot be returned to the wild. There were some interesting and disappointing stories. Humans, don't try and keep wild animals as pets! Come and visit them here.

Beautiful views, port-a-potty for a bathroom. Wear sunscreen and go to the bathroom before.

A Wonderful Way to Learn about Local Wildlife
May 2016 • Friends
I took a couple kids along to visit the wildlife rescue. You give a donation to take a guided tour and a volunteer, who is very informed, answers your questions. This place operates on donations only and that's what the entry fee pays for. Well worth it!

A must for the animal lovers
Mar 2016 • Solo
If you love animals please stop by here and consider adopting one. They all need loving homes to go home to! You can tell these animals are well cared for by the staff that works here. They truly love their job and love the animals.

This is a very good example of how animals live in the wild and a great way to experience how they are taken care of when injured.

These Folks Are The Best!
Jul 2015 • Family
On several occasions, this facility has given advice and/or taken in an animal for whom we had no resources for care. They are compassionate, kind, and committed to taking care of these helpless creatures. We love them.

Get Out In Nature

You cannot see the world from the freeway. There are so many animals and birds and plants and forests to enjoy. Drive past pristine pastureland that is still family owned. Recommended you see what is being saved and protected from these area. They do an incredible job.

Amazing opportunity to learn about local wildlife
Mar 2015 • Couples
First of all, don't go expecting a traditional "zoo" experience. This is a place that rehabilitates sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. They (rightfully) don't take visitors in to see animals that they are working to re-release. The tours are Saturdays at 2pm (I believe they also do a noon tour during the summer) and the donation for the tour is $15 for adults, less for kids (something like $10). The only way to get in to see the animals is with this guided tour. The animals that you see on the tour are the ones that, for various reasons, are not releaseable. When I visited, there were several foxes, several coyotes, two mountain lions, several possums, a few raccoons, at least one squirrel and a couple of other animals I'm probably forgetting. The tour was about 45 minutes long and the guide was great at explaining why each animal was there and couldn't be released, as well as giving information about the state of local wildlife, the dangers they face, and the role of the Wildlife Rescue. It was a great outing and the children who were on the tour seemed to really enjoy it as well.

Worth a visit
Jul 2013 • Family
We found this place on Tripadvisor, which continues to prove to us the value of using Tripadvisor! This place does tours on Saturdays only, one at noon and one at 2PM during spring and summer. At 2PM only during fall and winter. The outdoor tour lasts about 40 - 45 minutes and is really quite interesting. On the day we visited we were lucky that all the animals were out and active. (We did the 2PM tour). We saw coyote, bobcat, mountain lions, wolves, (And they sure do howl), skunk and red-tailed hawks. The animals on the tour are ones that cannot be released back into the wild and become their "education" animals. There is a fee of $10/adult and $5/child. Everyone can really enjoy this.
