  • Really enjoyed our trip to this zoo. Even though it has a relatively small footprint, they have a great variety of critters including some super cute lynx kittens!  more »
  • Great place visit with kids of any age. Very inexpensive and I love that these are rescue animals. The peacocks roam free which the kids just loved! Pack a lunch and bring a cooler as there are severa...  more »
  • Sanctuary for Injured / Orphaned Animals. Have been going each year for 20 years. Not too big that kids or grand parents to get exhausted. But, lots of animals, snakes, spiders, for an easy 1 -2 hour ...  more »

  • Awesome place to relax and spend the day. The animals look healthy and it is a little hidden oasis for families with kids to go to. They have about 3 places kids can go play at and picnic tables. It is a well kept sanctuary... where your money goes to good use.
  • It is small, it's not the most maintained but it is the most loved. These animals had no where else to go because of tragedy on their end, but this place gave them something that mother nature might not have, a chance. Its special in that you get a better view of the animals then might get at some larger zoo. My family and I got to watch Shash, a black bear that grew up in captivity due to his mother's death, sit down right in front of us and have his meal. I mean right in front of me, not from some fence line looking down, it was special.
  • The staff were awesome and knowledgeable. The animals are all rescues and were well cared for and loved.
  • Beautiful scenery and you can see a lot of the Prescott area. Nice pavilions with a bbq and just a great place to spend the day.
  • Good place to visit. It's all ran by volunteers. A nice little hidden place to find.
