  • This was an unexpected delight. Lots of big cats and other interesting animals in the middle of nowhere Maine. They have reasonable entrance fees, friendly staff, and wonderful animals that you can...  more »
  • I was expecting more exotic animals and less goats, chickens and lamas. There are a couple of lions and tigers, bears and kangaroos but there were mostly farm animals.  more »
  • This place is unique in this are and has grown form a shoestring. The couple that started the compound are very knowledgeable and intimate with their animals. Please watch the Yankee Jungle on Animal....  more »

  • Love this sanctuary! The animals are beautiful! We got to pet goats and llamas and there are geese and ducks that run around loose! The parrot was definitely my favorite! Such a beautiful bird! I LOVED seeing the tigers eat and prowl around! The mountain lions were absolutely gorgeous, and the monkeys were just so cute!
  • This is an amazing animal haven. Thank you to the staff for answering all our questions on our visit. Thank you to the owners for the amazing job you do in caring for the animals and the wonderful staff u hire. Never realized how much money and work this family does because they love animals. If anyone is looking for an organization to make a donation to seriously come check out this place. The Big cats will steal your hearts!
  • It was under construction but what a wonderful surprise this little place was to us. We will be regulars every year to support this rescue zoo. I loved the black bear, tigers, lions, black panther, mountain lion,. Bob cat, camel, farm animals (who you feed if you want), and the ducks that follow you but are nice.
  • Admission is for the entire day, so you are welcome to leave and eat lunch on the picnic tables before heading back in. You can feed the animals in the beginning of the park, including the bears! There's even some fowl just strolling around with you! More exotic cats than I have ever seen in one place. You can see they are expanding to include more as well. Staff were friendly and helpful, gift shop available at the end of the park. Definitely worth a visit (or three!).
  • This place is Awesome! Bob and Julie Miner are AMAZING!! This world needs more people like them in it. Thank you for all that you do for these precious animals.
