We went there over 12 years ago by mistake, driving through and found this awesome place. Decided to stop and donated to when Sulton was a baby lion. Awesome place, the keepers are informative the animals seem to be happy and well taken care of. None of them were pacing the fence. The keepers were friendly as well as the staff. We donated a large sum to Sulton to see what he is up to every year. Recommend visiting. Some day when I am in the area I will have to visit again. We drove from NJ passing through. So not a place I can locally visit.
Keepers of the Wild is the most compassionate & wonderful interpreter of misplaced animals. So very inspiring to animals that, for the most part, have been neglected & abused. I actually shed more than a couple of tears hearing the history's of these magnificent animals. There is no stress now in their faces now... maybe a cranky one here and there. I was too it was 100*
The employees there are so knowledgeable. We always enjoy ourselves when we visit. It's so refreshing to know these animals are safe now and can live out their lives happy.
I try to visit yearly. Love the way the exotic animals have a large natural environment to live out their lives. I try to donate as much as I can. Every time I visit I see new improvements. Caryn and Al
Keepers of the Wild is amazing and I'm grateful for the work they do providing a second chance to animals harmed by humans!
I absolutely love the work the Keepers of the Wild do. Feeding time is a great time to learn more about their rescue work. Absolutely one of the best places I've ever been.
I have visited Keepers of the Wild several times now. The first two times was with my sons class as a field trip. It is amazing how they have grown. It is a fantastic place to visit. Jonathan Kraft is a wonderful man and sincerely dedicated to these animals. I took the guided tour with Tina. It is clear they have a great respect for these animals. The tour was great and very informative.
They get a lot of visitors making their way down Route 66. We had a couple from Australia with our group. They were shocked at some of the laws in some states that allow exotic animals as pets.
I think the most eye opening info is that have a lion and several tigers that were "photo op" animals. Some states allow you to have your pics takes with cubs. When they get too big, they are usually destroyed. Keepers have been able to offer a home to some of these animals and for that I thank them!
I can't say enough about Keepers and all the good they do. I have sponsored animals there over the years and I even flew over from CA so I could visit in person. If you can donate time, money or supplies please do because it all goes to the animals. I can't wait to visit again!!
