Nice rescue facility. All voluntarily run and donations from various places. Was told that Walmart and Public's donates over 100,00.00 in chicken produce etc. Facility is dated but animals look well cared for. Volunteers are friendly and very nice.

Been going here since the 1970's when I was 5 years old... it has not changed. Reminds me of a 1950's roadside attraction.

You can feed monkeys via PVC pipes running from the viewing area to each cage. Food is available for a small fee. You drop some bits of food into the PVC and gravity sends it to the cage, where the monkeys take it in hand.
