Great place for kids and family's. Bob and family do a wonderful job protecting and educating on the animals and what the DEW is all about.
9/17/16 This was my first visit and it was a beautiful place to visit. Bob and Julie are two wonderful people. The staff was helpful as well. The place is very clean. I would go back. You can tell tha... read more »
Loved this place. Bob and Julie are awesome!!! So warm and caring to the visitors. The tour with Bob was educational and funny. Bob told about each animal, where they came from, their habits and then ... read more »
My experience differed from those who commented above. The animals I saw had water, but the water was very dirty and black. I was particularly concerned about the exotic birds. I saw three macaws in a small, chicken wire cage with dirty water and no food I could see, as well as no real available shelter from the elements--just a small shaded area. I could hear the screams of a cockatoo all around the park. It was a Molluccan cockatoo, again in a cage too small for it's size. It had no companionship and seemed starved for attention. The owner just yelled to the bird to shut up. He told the tourists that this bird was a recent donation. Birds are social animals and this bird nothing/nobody with whom to socialize. And what care does Dew Haven provide for these tropical birds, and for that matter, other animals from warmer climates in the colder months? I have been unable to stop thinking about what I saw and heard at Dew Haven. I think the owners may be making an effort, but they are in over their heads here. The big cats also had very dirty water in their enclosures. Please, can they at least have some clean water, adequate, healthy food, and some shelter from the elements?
My family and I had a wonderful time there. We decided to go on a Saturday so we could enjoy the benefit off having a guided tour with Bob and whoa, what an experience we had. I would like to take the time to personally thank Bob, Julie, their entire family and everyone that has an impact at Dew Haven!!! What a fantastic place to visit and really connect with the animals and the people. I truly wish Yankee Jungle was still on the air and believe in what the Miners are doing. It's easy to pass judgement behind a computer screen but I challenge all the nah sayers to experience this in person and you to will be a believer in their mission!
My sister and i are going here today as a bit of an adventure as weve never been to mount vernon let alone dew haven! Were soo excited! My sister is most excited to see the kitties, as she has a serious cat problem.. but heres to new adventures!! I hope theres a few reptiles in it for me! :)
An amazing place to bring your kids. These people are awesome and definitely care for their animals. So oooooooh love this this place. Wish I could be a volunteer.
I was going to bring my children with my husband....until I found out that it would cost is $70 for my husband and I and our four kids to see these animals..... You are making it impossible for a family on a limited budget to enjoy the wildlife you have in captivity... So looks like our family will instead support our local humane society... socialize with the animals and go buy a big bag of cat food and big bag of dog food to donate for a fraction of the amount to go to Dew Haven! An unfortunate situation but still sharing the love for animals with four small children!! Dews high prices graciously blessed the animal shelter with a family of 6 and donations of food!! Good day to be had... so for those like us that decide it's too expensive... please consider a small donation of time and or pet food at a humane society near you!! (And save the gas money you would have spent to travel!!)
