We own a small zoo in the south. I have over 32 in the animal field and I have no other zoo/sanctuary that even comes close to the magnitude of GW Exotic. The place is well kept, well managed, the animals are healthy and have regular veterinary care.
Your public zoos could actually take a few
lessons from GW Exotics. They involve the visitors so that the visit leaves a memory that stays forever and strikes a heartwarming feeling in the depth of your soul. I recommend if you EVER get the chance to go to do it! You will NOT regret it!

It seems indisputable that GW Exotic Animal Park does indeed rescue animals. And it appears the level of care provided has greatly improved over the years, after what seems to have been a rocky start. However, the financial burden of never saying no, of never turning away an animal, when doing so financially endangers the lives of the 1,400 others already living in the facility, is troublesome to me. It also seems to be a huge contradiction to, on one hand, "rescue" animals and, on the other, to breed and produce more captive animals to be used for commercial purposes. The director has stated he would take the baby tigers off the road if he could afford to. If that's true, and this mission to rescue is sincere, then GW needs to make some serious changes in my 'giving' book before I can support them or recommend them to anyone else.

Stop using exotic animals in ways that perpetuate the need for rescue organizations to exist

Great facility that has been the target of many negative and unfounded attacks. Go there and see for yourself what a great facility this is, run by great people with truly golden hearts. Rumors are unfounded and a little bit childish in regards to GW's and I've never seen anything but excellence in every way coming from here.

I have worked for allot of company's and Joe treats his animals with respect and kindness that i have never seen. He is the hardest working man i know and ask so little in return. people everybody has flaws and nobody is perfect, it is a wise man who talks little and only preforms on actions, Joe is one of those men.

I have visited several zoos, sanctuaries and orgs through out my many years. By far, GWPark surpasses all others as to the quality of care they give to their animals in their keep. Clean cages, healthy animals, well-maintained park with the general public's safety in mind. Staff is easy accessible to answer your questions.

We have worked a long side GW for many years, they never turn down an animal in need. If you need help they are the first ones to step up and answer the call. Wonderful place and a must see stop!

This is the largest and the best kept facility in the United States. The people that say they breed for profit are just blind to the gossip. This park is now the leading facility in DNA testing to save the species and much more. Keeping up the good work to protect the tiger species against a 25 year agenda by the AR to make them extinct. keep up the good work.

I can assure you this is one of the finest places on earth. With the excellent staff here you will always find that the animals are loved, cared for and the guest are treated just like kings and queens. The park grounds are beautiful and all the cages are spotless. One of the best private owned zoos in the world. This zoo serves also as a refuge to homeless animals that have no where else to go. It is a must see place. any negative comment is from people who have never been here.
