Genesis Zoological & Wildlife Rescue
Are you looking for an educational, fun, and affordable place to visit this weekend?
LkldTV learned that baboons love pickles when we met with Kim Allaway of Genesis Zoological and Wildlife Rescue, a rehabilitation facility located inAuburndale, Florida. They have been rehabilitating native wildlife since 1989 and are known in Polk County as a good place to take injured, orphaned and displaced wild animals.
The main functions of the center are to rescue wildlife and facilitate their release, and the permanent care of exotic and nonreleasable animals. The nonprofit center does not receive local, state or federal funding and depends solely on donations and volunteer staff.
The Center is open to the public Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. A $2 donation is requested for admittance, all of which goes to feed the animals.
