    It was the worst place I have ever been to all the animal's look sad they don't even have a experience of what their own land would look like their shelter looks like dog kernels an poorly mad. The turtle water an alligator water recycles it self it looks like it has never been cleaned.

    This is a nice place to bring daycare age children for an outing. They are able to feed the deer and unable to realize that this place is very unkempt & small. The best part is the view of the mountains

    Loved It!!! The staff is amazing and their love and care for the animals show. My young son and I got to witness the special bonds that people can form with animals. Now my son wants to go into an animal field. The facilities were very clean and well kept. I recommend any family in the Reno area to drop by and visit.
