I was very surprised after visiting this "sanctuary". The organization is run by an ex-circus family and the animals are still put on display and forced to put on performances. I've visited twice and the first time I was there baby animals were taken outside of their cages to have their pictures taken with visitors. It seemed very much like a roadside attraction. I think the people running the operation love animals and have the best intentions. However, they also don't see anything wrong with using their "rescued" animals for performances. Call a spade a spade- this is no "sanctuary"

I found the staff and volunteers very loving toward the animals. The animals were healthy and well fed. Facilities were clean and in good shape. I feel the organization is living up to its mission and is doing a great job in caring for God's creatures. It was an interesting visit and I have more appreciation for what they do after going there.

This organization is not exactly what most people would consider a true exotic animal sanctuary. The founders are retired circus people, and many of the animals are used in performance acts that are passed off as "education." While the people who run the organization no doubt care about their animals, it appears to be more of a stationary circus disguised as a sanctuary, rather than a true rescue.
