  • Gorgeous landscape...spritzing rain from nowhere...sit and experience the fresh clean air and all is well......
  • Beautiful place with nice people. they really care about the animals! I would definitely come back to this place.
  • 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.
  • Nice short walking
  • 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.
