  • We attended the after-hours personal tour and the experience was fantastic! The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable. His care for the welfare of all of the rescue animals was immediately evident. The personal interactive experiences with several of the animals is something I HIGHLY recommend. Well worth the price and I recommend this Zoo to anyone who loves animals.
  • My maid of honor booked us the after hours tour as a part of my bachlorette weekend, and it was absolutely fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the animals and were even able to interact with some of them as Mark told us about their stories and their personalities. It is obvious that they are well taken care of, and while listening to Mark talk about them, it is clear that he respects each one on an individual basis and knows all of their quirks. It is a smaller place, so don't expect all the fancy bells and whistles a larger zoo would have; however, if you come with the idea in mind that this is a place for these rescued animals to call home, and you are open to learning about them and the history of the place, you will have a pleasant experience. I definitely plan on coming back in the future.
  • I have always been someone that does not go to zoos, but when I heard there was a zoo with all rescue animals I had to visit! This zoo is very clean and all of the animals were happy and looked healthy. I really liked how they all had places in their enclosures where they could go and hide to be left alone if they wanted to be. Each enclosure has facts about the species and a lot also have another placard that tells you that specific animals back story. There is also a petting zoo and you can feed the animals with grain that is provided. I had a wonderful experience!
  • this is a cool place. the owner is very dedicated to saving and protecting all these animals. absolutely loved this place. the owner is very interactive and is very helpful with any question u have. I highly recommend visiting and buy something from the gift shop. it all benefits the rescue
  • I'm not sure if this is considered a hidden gem. But it is! This is a much more personal experience than a National or bigger zoo. It had a lot of different animals including a tiger, kangaroo, lynx and alligators and crocodiles. It also has a petting zoo with goats, horses and sheep. The monkeys were awesome...very entertaining. The owner will explain a lot and gives valuable information about the animals and seems to make sure everyone has a good experience. We'll definitely visit more often.
