Someone recommended that we visit the sanctuary during our trip. There isn't an admittance fee, just donations. We really enjoyed ourselves. It's great that there is a place that will take in rescued or injured animals.

We arrived soon after they opened. We started at the gift shop to get information. The service representative there gave us a very passionate explanation of what they do there and why the animals and birds call this home. She was extremely knowledgeable. There was a large group of 2nd grade students assembling for a guided tour. We followed one... More
