 Even though the animals have large enclosures, T&D's offers you the
opportunity to view many of them at a distance of just five feet!  

You can count the whiskers on tigers, lions, etc...

Note: Laws prohibit visitors from direct contact with the animals.

tiger logo Due to the various backgrounds of the animals at T&D's and our belief that animals should not be exploited, our facility is only scheduled for visitors to enjoy and learn about the animals approximately 40 days a year. We also realize that education is important and therefore, open for groups by appointment during the week.  Occasionally, we exhibit a few of the animals off site to provide an unforgettable educational experience.

WHAT TO EXPECT: During a weekday visit you MUST go on the guided tour (see above).  During your weekend visit, you may walk around on your own to view the animals. All exhibits are outdoors. T&D's volunteers are stationed at different areas to answer your questions about the animals.  You will be walking on a gravel/grass path throughout a mostly wooded area.  There are no hills and several benches located along the path for your use.  We also have a picnic area that you are welcome to use.  We sell cold drinks but no food.  So...bring a lunch, use the picnic area, and RELAX!  Closed toe walking shoes (sneakers) are preferred.  Wheelchairs will work with some effort.  Electric wheelchairs are best.  (Sorry, we do not have any wheelchairs to rent.)

In Our Neighborhood.

For your safety, we will not open during thunderstorms nor do we allow umbrellas.
