CARE's 3rd Annual Fall Festival

Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) is proud to present its 3rd Annual Fall Festival. This year we will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary, so come out to celebrate with us and the cats, lemurs, and coati of CARE!

You will experience an up close and personal tour of the facility learning all about the animals. They will play with pumpkins and chase presents that are specially made for them by 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 and open. Our cats love the cooler weather in the fall! The lemurs will get special treats as well. They love candy!!

Fun for You: 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! We are also bringing back the Tiger Tug-o-War. Adults can test their strength against one of the largest carnivores on the planet, a tiger! Bring your cameras, this will be a memorable experience for all!

Festival Dates: November 9th, 10th, 16th, & 17th

Festival Times: Saturdays at 12pm and 3pm. Sundays 1 pm. Visitors will have one hour to play games, decorate their boxes and pumpkins, and enjoy refreshments before the tour starts.  

CARE asks for a donation of $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. This is the only time of year we allow children of all ages.

What CARE has been able to accomplish this year is incredible and it was because your amazing support and generosity. We work hard to care for each and every animal here, and it is a difficult job, but know that it would not be possible if we didn't have you. You are making a difference in each animals' life here. You will always have our gratitude.

We hope you all the best today and everyday. Thank you for being a part of CARE!
