Fantastic experience for our children. It was fun to see and hear about the Zebras and Antelope. Best part was feeding the giraffe. Our children have a great memory of this trip to Point Arena!

The animals were beautiful, the focus of the preserve was well intentioned and the guide was super knowledgeable - seemed to have a well-studied answer to all questions. Highly recommend the preserve if you have a few hours to spend while in the Mendocino area.

I dont know -- suggest calling and asking the preserve. A concern would be if your dog barks or runs about.
