This place really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I were looking for a short fun day trip for our 5 year old. The staff are very friendly and so are many of the animals.

We came and enjoyed this a lot. Lots of animals to see here, we went to the presentation which was interesting. Took the train ride thing, fed the giraffe and a few other animals. Played on the small playground, enough for us for one day.

I stepped in at the zoo on 7-24-18 and all was enjoyed. The animals were rescued and happy. The staff cares from what i can see. I think people should support their local zoo.

Visited the facility with children and grand children. It was as expected of a rescue zoo, not a lot of frills, some exotic animals; way too many goats. The staff was as much a treat as the animals. Friendly and engaging, especially for the little...More
