We will be accepting credit cards, but cash would be appreciated (it will also help our ticket lines move much more quickly). Your admission will go directly to the feeding and care of our animals.


The CARE Foundation is a not-for-profit exotic animal rescue and wildlife education facility providing homes for over 200 animals in Apopka. Normally, we only offer private tours so this OPEN HOUSE is a great opportunity to see our facility and learn about our animals..
We will have volunteers available to answer questions about our animals. There will be food trucks, give-aways and some limited animal feeding opportunities (food will be provided/no outside food, please).


Our 10-acre facility is partially paved, but there are natural pathways to some of our animal enclosures that may be inaccessible to wheelchairs and electric scooters. To visit all of our animals, please be prepared to do a fair amount of walking and allow a minimum of two hours of time.


Parking for the Open House will be at the Zellwood Sweet Corn Festival grounds (4253 Ponkan Road – Zellwood, FL. 32798), less than a half mile from our gate. Shuttles will be running to and from the parking area beginning 15 minutes before our gates open and 15 minutes after they close. Disabled parking will be available for those with valid parking permits.

Please call 407-247-8948 with any questions.


Have you found an injured animal?

We are an exotic animal rescue dedicated to providing permanent homes for primarily non-native species. Unfortunately, we are not licensed to take in or care for orphaned or injured Florida wildlife. If you find an orphaned or injured animal, please contact Back To Nature wildlife rehabilitation center.
