Family had a great time looking at all the different animals. It is a guided walking tour around the grounds. I think the adults were actually more excited then the adults. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

I want to keep returning to this sanctuary, the interns, the animals and the property are so impressive. So much to learn here, I would visit daily if I could. Love it there, and saving up supplies like old blankets for my next visit!

Brought my 10 year old grandniece here. While I prefer self-guided places, the guided tour was interesting, but we were moving on a schedule in a group. This can be bothersome when you have people who want to talk over the guide or in other...More
