Dade City's Wild Things, Inc. (in conjunction with Stearns Zoological Rescue & Rehab Center, Inc.) is a beautiful 22-acre zoo located in the heart of Pasco County in historical Dade City, Florida. We take pride in providing a natural botanical garden landscape environment for the animals in our facility.

Stop by and visit our GIFT SHOP, featuring zoo animal themed items. All proceeds go to support the animals.

From there you can jump on our authentic trolley to take a short ride to the zoo... Experience a "once in a lifetime" walking trek or Tram Ride of over 200 ANIMALS ON EXHIBIT, surrounded by a beautiful garden landscape.

You will be amazed at how close you will be to stalking tigers, playing bears, roaring lions, mischievious monkeys, swimming otters, calling birds and so much more! It will be an experience you will never forget as these animals interact with your personal guide, in most cases within just three feet of your tour group.

Would you enjoy a hands-on encounter with a lion cub, tiger cub, skunk, gator or monkey? Immediately following our Zoo Tours, animal encounters are offered in the gardens.
