The public bring rescue animals to this site where they are cared for until they are well enough to be returned to the wild or to a safe place. It's a beautiful seaside farm with enthusiastic volunteers and we came away with a greater understanding of the work they do

Nice tour of their facilities, with viewing and interaction with some of their "permanent residents". Super nice people there. You cannot tour the active rehab areas except once each year on Open House day, though.

If you have ever seen the TV show, you know how much work they do at the farm. It is nothing short of amazing. They have an education session that is as good for adults as kids. A great day!
