We're open for visitors on Saturdays and Sundays from 10AM til 2PM, weather permitting. NO appointment is needed, just come on out.
NOTE: We CLOSE July 4th til Sept due to the heat.
We'll be open by appointment, for overnight stays, parties and events during this time.
The suggested donation for a visit is only $15 per person or $45 for a family of 4. If you cannot afford that, we still want you to come! Your support helps us care for the animals and keep our gates open, do what you can.
Trolley Tours with Michael are at 11AM and 1PM.
If you would like to visit during the week, please call or email us ahead to schedule a visit. Please email Elaine@Rooterville.org or call us at 352-262-7313.
We look forward to seeing you!
Monthly supporters visit ANYTIME, ANY DAY! If you can let us know you're coming, we'll be sure to be here if you're stopping by after 5PM. Trolley tours may not be available but we'll ride you around on a golf cart if you like.
Schedule Parties, Events, Cow or Goat Cuddle experiences or Private Tours at your convenience. Whatever we can do to make sure you have an amazing time, let us know.
We can't wait to see ya!
We recommend you use GPS or Map-quest to navigate to 1208 County Road 315, Melrose, FL 32666.
IF your navigation system tells you to go to HOPE LANE, DON'T! Our entrance is clearly marked and we're right on CR 315.
Don't drive in without assistance, please. Park outside the gate but please don't block the drive. If there are 2 large dogs or other animals at the gate, they are friendly but prone to running away. Please secure all gates when entering and leaving the sanctuary. Thank you!
