  • The animals are happy and well taken care of.
  • GO. See this place, help these animals! It isn't glamorous or picturesque, and might well be called sad in many ways - because the only reason it exists is because these animals were previously abused or neglected or used and discarded. Life in captivity isn't what you wish for any animals, especially those meant to be in the WILD, but at least this offers them good care, companionship and LOVE - these folks are truly devoted to the animals in their care. And without this sanctuary they'd face a terrible fate. With more visitors and donations they can offer these creatures so much more and keep fixing things up. Stop by and visit, we're so glad we did.
  • great animals that would of been put down if it wasn't for this sanctuary. the people that run and operate it are great and friendly people. and have gone out of there way to help me with a temporary place for my dog buddy
