If I was rating the animals I would give 5 stars- sadly, my recent visits to the sanctuary have been unnerving when it comes to contact with some of the people. I originally went on a tour about a year ago with several people from my company, after a woman from Pasados had presented at the school of a co-worker's child. We were so impressed, heard sad stories with happy endings and everyone was friendly there. Our tour guide presented truly inspiring stories of each animaI we visited. I have returned 4 times since and have seen a gradual declined in the attitudes of people who work there. The most disturbing was overhearing very hateful and even inappropriate comments about a couple of people there and offensive comments about religion.This was around the holidays and I was downstairs where volunteers sign in. More recently I heard a young man who works there joke about a rooster found dead and full of lice. He made a crack about being itchy. I decided then it was my last visit. This is not the same place I first visited last year.
