We brought our 18 month old son to this "zoo" while visiting Cumberland. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough courage to get out of the car. It looked like it had been abandoned for years, and there was a "No Trespassing" sign. We didn't want to be a snack for one of the exhibits.

Anyone going here needs to understand this is a refuge for rescued animals, and everything is covered in dung. Everything. Most of the more affable animals (pigs, roosters, house cats, peacocks, ducks, and tortoises) are roaming freely, like an enormous petting zoo. If you can get past the smell and constant hopscotch routine, you'll find some unusually intimate exhibits with... More

We had a great visit here this past Saturday. We had some items to pick up in Cumberland and decided to make a day trip of it (We live 1 1/2 hrs away). Thanks to tripadvisor we discovered this little hidden gem. If not for the internet we would have never known it was there as there aren't any signs... More

What an amazing experience while in the big cats area the owner came up and greated us. What a phenomenal man. His love for each of his animals at the zoo is easy to see. It was great to know each of the animals were rescued and to hear the various stories about how he got them. I highly recommend... More

This zoo was wonderful imagine you get to meet someone who bought a zoo or decided to build a zoo. Bob the owner is that person. We arrived here and we met Bob the owner who gave us lots of information regarding his zoo. My kids learned so much at the time we were here. You can tell by how... More

This is a great place. Lots of animals and very affordable admission. Could use some more funding/staff. Too many ducks and cats

The zoo has a small variety of animals. Upon arriving at the zoo we were greeted by a 9 year old volunteer who offered to give us a guided tour. The young man was very informative about the animals. He repeatedly engaged my 4 year old son in conversation about the animals. While walking through the middle enclosure there is... More

At first glance you may decide not to visit, but that is a mistake. We got there shortly after opening and were the only ones there. We were able to talk with caretakers of the animals who gave us lots of information and insight about the animals. Some animals there were raised from birth, others were rescued. Animals were well...
