We do not allow visitors to roam about the sanctuary unescorted ...why? Well I have worked at several zoo type facilities over the years and the majority of the people are polite and courteous however a small percentage are rude and harass the animals and that I will not tolerate one bit (such as the recent tragedy at the San Francisco Zoo).
McCarthy's is proud to announce the birth of our two, beautiful Lion cubs! Don't miss this opportunity! This could be your last chance to be able to interact with cubs! Book a tour at the Sanctuary, where you will meet their Mother and Father, then ask how you can book a romp with the cubs! We will be starting Monday, September 23rd. $50 per person with the addition of the $25 for adults and $15 for children tour fees. We have a beautiful boy and girl! We have named the boy, Scott, in honor of Mark McCarthy's dear friend who passed away a couple hours prior to Scott being born. And the girl is named Nika.
