It was established in 1977 to save animals that could no longer survive in their natural habitats.
So, why is it called the Popcorn Zoo? At the entrance desk, you can buy air-popped popcorn to feed to the birds and some of the farm animals. You shouldn’t try to feed the other animals though, due to their specialized diets.

The zoo is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The zoo also has a Monkey House that has many different types of monkeys. Along with exotic animals, they have native animals too: white-tailed and fallow deer, bobcats, black bears, and a raccoon.

All of the animals are rescued.
The Society is a not for profit, 501 © 3 organization. It prides itself on devotion to the thousands of animals that they care for annually and the chance for a better life.
