I don't know where to start. Deborah and her crew of volunteers have created a perfect refuge for some very lucky animals. When we visited here, I we were amazed at the LOVE and COMPASSION that these volunteers (uhh yeah- volunteers) have for these wonderful animals. If you think you have had a good animal expirence at a zoo or another refuge, you are wrong. I have never been anywhere where I got to experience the behavior of lions, tigers, wolves, lynx, panthers, etc ....from 5 feet away!!! These animals are well cared for and loved. We also got the rare expirence of aging with a lion cub, which was awesome. Please don't miss an opportunity to experience these animals and volunteers. And please, after you go, continue to make donations to this amazing not for profit organization. I can't believe the hours and hours of time that these people are able to spend with these animals, and how much of their own money ends up going to take care of the animals that have become their family. Such an awesome experience. It is no frills.... All money they get goes straight to the care of the animals. Like I said, do not pass this up!
