Not Many Know About This Exotic Animal Sanctuary Right Here In Arizona
When traveling along Route 66, there are certain places you expect to encounter: long-abandoned attractions, decades-old diners that serve burgers and malts, some pretty strange monuments, and even a few historic sites. But an exotic animal sanctuary is one spot that you probably wouldn’t expect but is definitely worth the stop. Today, we’re going to take a look at a sanctuary that not only makes a great visit but is also making a big difference in the lives of animals!
