Event Details

"Behind-the-scenes" tours for ages 10 and up feature the opportunity to join a member of our team in a small group setting to tour our facility, see our educational ambassadors, our current patients, outdoor enclosure area and classroom. Most of these areas are not open for the public to see except for these tours. Gift shop open.


Second Chances Wildlife Center is a sanctuary for animals. Your ability to abide by the following rules directly influences our ability - and willingness - to allow visitation. Very few true sanctuaries and rehabilitation facilities are open to visitors. Please do your part to ensure that you, and others, might enjoy this privilege now and in the future!

  • Sorry, no pets or service animals are permitted on our center's property. This is due to the nature and needs of predatory species on the premises.
  • Photography IS permitted but see above on restrictions.
  • Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times.
  • No running or "horseplay". There is a new park in Mt. Washington just a few miles away if you're looking for a great option for outdoor recreation.
  • No loud voices as yelling and people making weird animal sounds are very scary to our residents.
  • Allow sleeping animals to sleep. Please do not try to wake or tap on any cage.
  • Please do not touch any cages or stick fingers in cages. Our animals can bite. And do bite. Our team members do not.
  • We do not allow anyone to feed our animals as they are on a very strict diet, all with varied needs. We do, however, accept donations listed on our website wish list. These gifts are tax deductible.

Tour will start promptly on the hour at the lower level door of the front building. We will not begin earlier so please make arrangements accordingly. Parking is in gravel lot in front.
