Review for Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch, Silver Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have just come back home to the UK from volunteering at FAR for 4 weeks and loved every second of it! Kurt, Lisa and Miranda are extremely compassionate about the animals under their care and work extremely hard for their animals. They were all very friendly, helpful and welcoming and would always point me in the right direction if I was unsure about something. I loved all of the animals at the sanctuary, there were some right characters there (like Rebel, Chief and Roy). I loved working with each and everyone. Unfortunately I was there for the passing of Timber the wolf but I know that everything that could have been done for her was done - a very sad time. The sanctuary itself is very well maintained with very good facilities and is kept very tidy. The enclosures for the animals were perfect because they had plenty of open space and the enclosures themselves were well maintained. The two interns that I worked with were fantastic and showed me the best places to eat in Ocala!! I stayed in the male intern house which was great and only five minutes away from the sanctuary. I really hope I can go back and do it all again in the future!!
