  • This place is 20 minutes from my home and I didn't even know it existed! I had the best time with my niece. The staff and volunteers were so knowledgeable and friendly, answering all of my questions. The fact that all the animals are rescued and roaming the grounds in comfort brought me great joy! Being able to interact with them is such a great experience. As a huge cat lover, my day was made when I got to enter the Lynx pen and pet both Aphrodite and Cal, two of the most majestic kitties! It was a dream come true and an experience I will never forget. The Lemurs were fantastic and George (the monkey) was so cute! It was hard to leave but knowing how close they are to my home I'll definitely be back!
  • A couple years back, we had a chance to visit the ranch. The staff and caregivers were knowledgeable in both the animals themselves & their backstories. My Husband & I had an incredible experience with Penny the Lemur. It was later in the day under the weeping willow by the pond. She decided to come over, lay down, and nap while I rubbed her belly. Who knew Lemurs could purr? Penny spent a fair bit of time with us that day. We have a special place in our heart for her & Alex.
  • Love love love this place. It's sad it's going through trouble with the city, and some people. It's a beautiful piece of land, with a variety of beautiful creatures. It is run on donations, and they do great work, and treat the animals with pride respect. The lemurs and other monkeys are free roaming, but that may come to an end soon. I hope they can keep running and people can keep visiting.
  • Was an amazing place to see animals that aren't caged. Last I heard they were closing there doors because of safety complaints. If your concerns u may have an encounter that's close enough to hurt u, why would u go to a place that doesn't cage there animals? Anyways, hope they reopen there doors, I enjoyed my visit with my wife and toddler
  • We are kind of bias towards this place because we also volunteer but it also gives you an idea how much we love going here. We are happy to give up our free time to help Joni and Mark with all of their roommates (they aren't pets) just for the chance to be around these amazing animals as they run free around the yard. As much as I would love to keep this place to myself I can't help but tell everyone what a wonderful place it is. If you plan on stopping by please call first to make sure someone is around and also remember they keep the door open by visitors donations.
