“Compassion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Love anything that helps animals, especially wildlife displaced from all the building going on and taking their habitat. Great place.

“Fantastic Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

For a $10 donation you can spend all day at this place! So many animals to see and you can get really close.

“Not a zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a very interesting organization that rescues exotic animals, lions, tigers, bears, leopards, and more. I had no idea there were so many exotic pets in the US and that so many have been abused. These folks do what they can to make these animals comfortable.

If you have the opportunity to have a tour it is so much more interesting than just walking through. Dedicated people.

This was a great day trip experience. Lots of wild cats. They consume thousands of pounds of meat weekly. Run mostly be volunteers.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Tending to injured wildlife, and preserving the environment, doesn't do justice to the excellent work being carried out at this facility. Children especially, will be fascinated by the methods employed to save wounded critters.
