Temporary Zoo Closing March 25 thru April 23

The Virginia Govenor has ordered all non-essential businesses closed beginning March 25, 2020.  After that we will be closed until the governor orders change (as of now possible opening date is April 23, 2020). The zoo owners(Mark & Christine) live on the zoo grounds to always provide 24/7 care to the animals. The animals will be receiving the same amazing care they receive every single day!
