Lots of childhood memories here!! One of my favorite places in town! The animals are in the care of loving staff and are getting a chance at a better life. Keep up the good work!
Very exotic place for ALL the animals! The owner is very passionate to take care of the animals.
Been going for years. I went this year and noticed how much worse this place is. Quite a lot of sick animals. Animals they had for years. The weeds in the habitats is anywhere from my waist to shoulders. Seen 3 animals not including the animals in the petting zoo. That was the only area cleaned and presentable. So sad!
We enjoyed our visit on a nice cool day in June. There is an impressive number of big cats. We experienced the power of a lioness roaring. Most of the time the lions and tigers were lounging (so manage your expectations). But when they're moving it's an impressive show. Be patient. A wolf came to the fence to investigate and tell us we were on her turf. Lots of snarling. Fun. Many other animals to keep you and the kids entertained (zebras, deer, lemurs, monkeys). We had a relaxing afternoon. The care and concern for the animals is apparent. My impression is the sanctuary prioritizes the health of the animals over the entertainment of visitors. And that's fine with me. Everyone is friendly. I only wished I could have gotten closer to the bears.
This is a good place with an important mission & they take it seriously. The exotic animals come here mostly under horrible circumstances and may not feel like being out but you can purchase the undivided love & attention of the goats for the cost of the crackers available inside. I believe you may be able to observe the animals here closer than most zoos.
