CARE is a great destination for groups of all sizes and ages!

We can develop specialized tours to fit class field trips, after-school programs, office outings, etc. Please contact us if you are interested in scheduling a group trip.

The minimum donation suggested for CARE tours is $15 per adult and/or $10 per child. Donations can be made at CARE on the day of the tour. Currently we are only able to accept cash at the facility. All donations are tax-deductible.

Wear comfortable walking shoes and check the weather before visiting the facility (visit the link below)! Although it is a future plan of ours, we currently do not have paved walkways, so please keep that in mind as well on wet days.

Cameras are welcome! Bring water in the hot summer months!

  • New Summer Tour Hours!!
  • Tours every Saturday and Sunday at 9am, 11am, 1pm, and 3pm. No appointment needed for scheduled tour times!
  • CARE now offers a new 9am tour M-F during the summer. *Please be advised that the big cats are typically fed at night during the summer. This means that they could still have food with them in the morning. If you are sensitive to seeing the cats' food (typically whole cow/horse parts) and/or them eating, please let us know or contact us before hand to make other arrangements.
  • Appointments are required for holidays or special events.
  • Children must be at least 7 years old to tour the facility unless special arrangements are made with CARE.

Donate to CARE
We would not be able to accomplish what we do without YOU. We face many challenges daily in our work to provide a permanent sanctuary to our beloved animals. Your support helps ensure that their future in captivity will be brighter. Your participation makes a big difference. Thank you for sharing the CARE!
