  • Outstanding experience for the entire family. And every Animal lover. Animal areas and grounds are clean and welll kept, and the animals themselves look healthy and well cared for. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. So glad to see an organization dedicated to wild animal rescue. Truly enjoyable.
  • I'd give a "A" for effort for what they've done on probably a small budget, but I was a little underwhelmed overall. It was nice to get outside and walk around, but there were a lot of empty cages and it was hard to see many of the other animals they had. The grounds overall were clean and we'll kept and it was nice there were volunteers around answering questions. We walked through and saw everything in about 30 minutes. This place has done great with what they have but just don't expect the San Diego Zoo.
