At PAWS we believe that every wild animal forced to live in captivity deserves the chance to live as normal and as dignified a life as possible — with space to roam, quality nutrition, and excellent veterinary care — in an environment that's as natural and as peaceful as possible. The money raised from the sale of tickets to our open houses is used for the care and feeding of the animals living at our three sanctuaries, more rescues, habitat construction, and for the advocacy work we do that drives public policy changes to improve the health and welfare of all captive wild animals.
ABOUT THIS EVENT:
ARK 2000 Open House guests board shuttles to visit the bear, lion, tiger, leopard and elephant habitats. Once you exit the shuttle you will be walking on grass, dirt, gravel, and some paved surfaces, so please wear comfortable shoes. You may not touch any animal and all guests will be required to stay a safe distance away from the animals. PAWS management, keepers and volunteers will be on hand to tell you about the animals and answer questions.
A gift shop will be available on the day of the event. (We accept cash, checks and major credit cards.)
Event happens rain or shine. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing.
ADDRESS/DIRECTIONS: Please use our directions below. Don't believe GPS directions because some instructions will take you right past our gate. If you reach Mountain Oaks School, you've gone too far!
