Ashlyn was a great guide, because she was not reciting facts she had memorized, but introducing us to her animal friends, some of whom she had known since their birth. Her stories about how the animals came to be there were very enjoyable. She was knowledgeable and entertaining; and gracious about answering questions and letting folks handle, touch, and interact with several of the species.Highly recommended, great photo opportunities. You will leave feeling good about how your admission dollars will be used to care for the animals.

We had a great time learning about the animals and learning about each and every one of them. The animal interaction was also fun for the boys (10 and 13 years old). The facility is very clean and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

I am 72 and my wife and I took our daughter and our grandchild. Our entire family never had such up great experience with so many exotic animals. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and caring of both the animals and patrons. I would highly recommend McCarthy's for all ages and would compare to taking a road tour in a Rolls Royce.

The Sanctuary tour was the coolest thing. Lions, tigers, and Kinkajous, snakes, talking birds, and even a crocodile each with its own story, shared by our tour guide Ashlyn. who btw is a great ambassador for sanctuary. The animals are well loved and cared for and their habitats kept remarkably clean.
There are plenty of great photo opportunities to preserve your memories.
Overall, it was a great experience, we had lots of fun. I'd recommend this place to everyone.
