We visited and enjoyed the animals on an evening feeding tour. Most are older animals who were victims of poor human choices. The cages appeared very clean. The tour itself was stretched a little too long, especially for the young kids in the group (and...More

You can tell the keepers really care about the animals here. I wish I would have brought more money to tip them. Admission is way cheaper than it should be for this place. Well cared for animals here.

Mostly older exotic cats, emus, turtles, iguanas, lemurs and an obstinate pig in fairly spacious enclosures. Owner’s wife conducted the tour was intimately familiar with everything. Only cautions were the high weeds, and fire anthills. Boots would have been more appropriate footwear.

Our animals come to us from a variety of different situations! The one thing that they all have in common is that they are in need of a home. We try to provide them the best permanent home possible.
