I'm glad I got to see this. Lots of wild cats, many other animals, each with their own story about how they came to the Animal Ark shelter. Some were illegal pets, others are former show animals, others were abandoned or hit by cars.
I was a little worried to see one badger restlessly running laps within her designated space - she looked nervous. But I have to believe that the caretakers know better than I do what these wild animals need for their comfort. I could have asked one of the knowledgeable staffers about it. The two we met were friendly and helpful, answering our questions and offering more background information about the shelter and its animals.
In summertime, go as early in the day as you can; the animals, like us, just want to keep cool during the hottest parts of the day, and may be hiding in the shade when you visit. Wear a hat, wear sunblock, protect your skin: there is little shelter from the sun here. A light, long-sleeved shirt wouldn't be a bad idea. The shop sells water and ice cream bars as well as gift merchandise, and there's another station on site where you can buy water and cold drinks on the honor system.
