This place is the best zoo you will ever visit. The animals are in great health and very well taken care of. This zoo is a rescued place for animals that people can no longer care for or was in over their heads. Bob the owner is terrific and loves what he does. This was the first time I walked... More

Don't go. Animals in bad health and dangerous conditions. This zoo should be shut down. I feel bad for those poor animals.

We brought our 18 month old son to this "zoo" while visiting Cumberland. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough courage to get out of the car. It looked like it had been abandoned for years, and there was a "No Trespassing" sign. We didn't want to be a snack for one of the exhibits.

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 get past the smell and constant hopscotch routine, you'll find some unusually intimate exhibits with... More

We had a great visit here this past Saturday. We had some items to pick up in Cumberland and decided to make a day trip of it (We live 1 1/2 hrs away). Thanks to tripadvisor we discovered this little hidden gem. If not for the internet we would have never known it was there as there aren't any signs... More

What an amazing experience while in the big cats area the owner came up and greated us. What a phenomenal man. His love for each of his animals at the zoo is easy to see. It was great to know each of the animals were rescued and to hear the various stories about how he got them. I highly recommend... More

This zoo was wonderful imagine you get to meet someone who bought a zoo or decided to build a zoo. Bob the owner is that person. We arrived here and we met Bob the owner who gave us lots of information regarding his zoo. My kids learned so much at the time we were here. You can tell by how... More

This is a great place. Lots of animals and very affordable admission. Could use some more funding/staff. Too many ducks and cats
