The animals seemed to be very happy and healthy. I had an overall good experience while visiting the zoo. The owner Bob Candy was very kind and welcoming, and could described in-depth information about each individual animal, as well as knowing them by name.

Anyone going here needs to understand this is a refuge for rescued animals, and everything is covered in dung. Everything. Most of the more affable animals (pigs, roosters, house cats, peacocks, ducks, and tortoises) are roaming freely, like an enormous petting zoo. If you can...More
