  • I have seen more animals in my back yard than this poor excuse for a place to visit. Without spending a whole lot of time typing, just avoid this place. All I can say is Really? Give me a break  more »
  • We loved our time here. We got to feed some monkeys and an owl. Their were cats and dogs roaming around to pet. The highlight was a new litter of puppies. Do check this place out and leave a donation ...  more »

  • Dorothy is one of the nicest person. She truly cares for these animals. Casey - a 45 year old macaw is so friendly. We got to feed an owl and several other animals. Kids were wiped out after a long trail before getting to this place, but once in, we could not get them to leave after more than an hour. Do visit this place. It feels great to interact with these rescued animals.
  • Stopped in to see the monkeys and ended up spending hours, Dorothy the owner made us coffee and shared her story, her daughter shared her cooking skills and her excellent lentils and rice. The animals were great, Casey the McCaw and I bonded (mostly because Dorothy kept me well stocked with seeds and popcorn. Time well spent and a cause worth supporting.
  • Beautiful place with many animals. The staff is really nice and helpful and they explain in details. Highly recommended!
  • Remarkable place to visit the wide range of resident animals. Hostel for overnight visitors too.
  • Beautiful place, animals well treated, this is better then saying 50 for a walk in the wild because you have actual contact with the animals, we loved it. Please don't forget to help them out with your donation to keep the place going 😊
