Animal is one of North Carolina's premier exotic wildlife sanctuaries! With over 20 years animal exhibit experience in Montana - Animal has brought new vitality to what was formerly Noah's Landing. Animal has considerable experence working at the state, local and national levels with such entities as public and private shelters, Zoos, and Humane Society of the United States.

Animal is known for its hands-on educational programs and its ability to take many of the beautiful creatures in their care from throw-away to thrive.

We have made it our mission to broaden the horizons of children and adults alike, from all walks of life, through the use of our animal ambassadors that represent places from all around the world.

By bringing to life such places as Australia, Africa, and the rainforests of South America we will work to instill the feelings of wonder and awe. Feelings that we believe will be the catalyst for realizing the pride of ownership that is needed to drive our society to preserve the beautiful works of Mother Nature and her habitats worldwide.

We work hard to light that spark - in every child we can reach – that makes them say, “I can make a difference in this big, big world”.

It is our mission as well to increase awareness of the ever expanding exotic pet trade and educate about the pros, cons and commitment involved in the keeping of exotic OR domestic pets. We will promote the importance of responsible pet ownership and husbandry practices. We will educate the public on the importance of researching a pet before bringing it home, and are dedicated to providing sanctuary, either temporary or permanent, to any animal in need

Animal has been welcomed warmly by the local communities and would love to share whats new with you! We are now open to the public 11-4 Wednesday-Sunday.

We are looking forward to creating community events such as bonfires, Mother's Day and Father's Day events, Christmas Strolls, and more! We are available for rescue, sanctuary and consultation on care and keeping of any pet and consultations are free! We also offer summer camps, onsite field trips, and onsite birthday parties.
