They clearly state in their description they are not a zoo, and this is true. Their focus was definitely education and helping animals that had no place to go.The animal presentation was informative and interactive. I even held a tarantula.

What an amazing little place. Quaint but totally chill. Not a place where you get scolded for being curious. When we first came in there was a show (1:30pm) where we learned about various cute animals and were able to pet and/or hold them. Chris,...More

In all fairness they recently reopened after suffering damage from Irma so they are ostensibly not at their best. That being said, it reallly was not a good experience. The animals did appear healthy, but the area was truly unpleasant to the senses. Their website...More

This is one of our favorite rehab/rescue in South Florida. They provide a sanctuary for the animals, many of whom cannot be released back into the wild after rehabilitation. Very clean. They are working on building larger habitats. The educational presentation is always a must...More

As animal lovers we always look for zoo's and animal interaction opportunities when we travel. We have a Malamute and Samoyed, so the chance to meet Wolves face to face seemed too much to miss. But we wish we had. Apart from the fact this...More

This is a very nice little private zoo. Our 5 year old twins really enjoyed it. They loved the animal interaction during the presentation. Most places don't have this. Some of the enclosures could be a bit larger, but was a good day out
