Dade City's Wild Things (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 pride ourselves on providing a natural botanical garden landscape environment for the animals in our facility.
Stop by and visit our GIFT SHOP, featuring zoo animal themed home decor, jewelry, tiffany lamps, photos, art works, stuffed animals, educational toys, games and gifts for all ages. All proceeds go to support the animals. From the gift shop you can jump on our authentic street trolley to take a short ride to the zoo.
Experience a “once in a lifetime” walking trek or Safari Tram Ride of over 200 ANIMALS ON EXHIBIT, surrounded by a natural botanical garden landscape.
You will be amazed at how close you will be to stalking tigers, playing bears, roaring lions, mischievous 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 three feet of your tour group!
Our mission is to provide quality, lifetime care for animals needing homes and to educate the public about these creatures that share our planet and to instill in our visitors a love for all animals.
We are also licensed and inspected by the State of Florida and Federally by Aphis-USDA Animal Care. We work closely with State and Federal agencies and USDA facilities and zoos throughout the United States to rescue, adopt or place more animals, as they need homes.
