Come out for a unique way to meet and learn about the many different species that call CARE home!

CARE tours are a great way to see the facility and learn all about the animals that have found a home here. Every tour is guided by a seasoned CARE volunteer, and each guide has their own special stories of the animals to share with you. The tours are educational in nature, and provide details on the different species, as well as the background and stories of each animal here at the facility. The tours last an average of an hour and a half. No appointments are needed for weekend tours for groups of 15 or less.

The minimum donation suggested for CARE tours is $15 per adult and/or $10 per child 12 and under. Donations can be made at CARE on the day of the tour.

Children must be at least 7 years old to go on tours except during the annual Fall Festival event.

Wear comfortable walking shoes and check the weather before visiting the facility. We do not have paved walkways inside the compound. The ground is uneven and can be muddy, and we do not allow umbrellas inside the compound, so please keep that in mind when you visit.

Cameras are welcome!
