  • Visited with my Dad and younger sister and we absolutely loved it. Staff is very knowledgeable (shout out to Katie!) And they clearly love and care for these animals. Great selection of animals with nice facilities and a cute gift shop. Would 100% come back again for such a wonderful experience
  • Absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable staff. Owners that care about the well being of the animals. We were there when it was raining and one of the co-owners rushed with a bucket of umbrellas to the group. We went on the Saturday 10am tour but I can see us returning. Knowing our money went to the nonprofit well being of the animals made the price more than worth it. The animals looked very well cared for.
