5th Annual Fall Festival

Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) is announcing our annual Fall Festival!

November 7th, 8th, and 14th! 

During the festivities you will experience an up close and personal tour of the facility learning all about the big cats and lemurs. The animals will play with pumpkins and chase presents that are specially made for them by our visitors. The facility will be decked out for the fall season as we welcome in the big cat’s favorite time of year.


Fun for the Cats: The big cats will run, jump and play with their pumpkins and have specially made presents (with treats inside) tossed to them to chase. Our cats love the cooler weather in the fall and get extra frisky!

Fun for Us: Games, refreshments, face-painting, prizes, arts and crafts, treats, and the present toss will be tons of fun for the whole family.
















Visitors 18 years old or older will have the opportunity to feed the cats their favorite snack…chicken treats! Plus, we are bringing back the big cat bobbing for pumpkins.........
