Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
T & D's rescue receives animals in need from private individuals, government agencies, zoos, and other refuge organizations. We provide a permanent home for these animals and open each summer to share their beauty with you. Over 200 abused, mistreated, or unwanted animals call T&D’s home, including 60 felines (lions, tigers, cougars, leopards, bobcats, servals, and jungle cats). Other animals, bear, fox, deer, coyote, wolf-dog, raccoon, lemur, parrots, and others have also found their way to T&D's.

T&D’s is fully licensed by the state and federal governments to house and exhibit wildlife. Professional animal care is provided by the Mattive family and dedicated veterinarians at the onsite medical building.

T&D’s is not funded by the government. The care of the animals is made possible in part by private contributions. T&D’s does not breed, buy, or sell exotic wildlife.

T&D’s strives to provide large enclosures for the animals in our care. You will find tigers cooling off in the pond within their two acre exercise area, lions lounging in an acre exhibit, and bears wandering about their acre enclosure. Catch a glimpse of the wolves in their acre enclosure or the coyotes playing "King of the Hill" in their 1/2 acre enclosure. A new tiger enclosure completed in September 2008. Donations still be accepted to help defray the cost of materials. Please help.

Besides providing room to run, T&D’s also believes in enriching the animals lives. As you walk around, you may see balls, tires, ropes, and other items provided for the animals enjoyment.

Diet is also extremely important. The carnivores eat over 12,000 pounds of meat each and every month! This is equivalent to 10-12 cows! Each lion and each tiger need 30-40 pounds (and sometimes up to 100 pounds) of meat every day.

  • I especially loved Thor The Lion -- and his roar that could be heard throughout the land, and all the animals responding!  more »
  • The facility specializes in providing a safe environment for WILD animals that have been stolen from their natural environment and an attempt was made to raise them as pets. It works for a while...  more »
