“A must see when in Chico area”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

These folks do a great job with rescue animals. A variety of wild animals on site, all I believe have been rescued from a prior bad environment. A very dedicated staff consists of a lot of volunteers so your fee helps support their efforts. Check it out!

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This is such a wonderful facility, especially in a rural area, for abandoned, neglected and/or abused animals. It has always had financial difficulty and depends, in large part, on volunteers and contributions.

“Great for kids to see”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Special needs animals are well cared for here. Pay for a guide. Very informative. Watching the animals beIng fed in the early morning is quite a treat. Don't miss it.

“Go when it's cool”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

These are retired and/or special needs animals that have been given a second chance, clean quarters, and loving care. The cages are a bit small, but the animals appear content. There isn't much shade and it's very hot there in the summer. Best time to visit: spring and fall.
