  • I️ was very impressed with the upkeep of the sanctuary. The workers seemed to be busy cleaning and caring for the injured animals during my whole visit. 4 large bald eagles acted as the highlight for ...  more »
  • If you love animals, and love supporting places with rescue animals this is the place to go. Quaint and small, but a nice place to stroll to absorb animals.  more »
  • This is one of the best animal sanctuaries I have been to. All of the cages were clean and the pools were blue instead of murky green. We went on Halloween and the animals had pumpkins in their cages....  more »

  • Last week, we visited the Sanctuary and it was more than I expected. We were able to attend the live showing of the animals. Absolutely, nice atmosphere and kid friendly environment. It was "free" admission, however donations were appreciated. The only thing I would recommend, especially if you are being kids, please bring snacks. We didn't see anywhere on the property where food items could be purchased. However, they do have a gift shop. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
  • This place is outstanding. Every employee really cares about the operation and is always willing to help! Great place!
  • My sister has lived in the surrounding area for 35 years never had been. I have lived here for 8 years never been. We went today with family from Maine. We all loved the visit! Educational and FREE! Donations are how they run the place, make sure you donate something! I will be returning on a monthly basis.
  • Love it here. I use to volunteer here 15 years ago and loved it. I still come to visit often. Love all the things they do for the community and the wildlife. They really love these animals.
  • Great place to see animals up close! It's free, although they do accept donations (low pressure). Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!
