Age requirements for children

Please understand we want to ensure that all guests have an enjoyable experience while visiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Some Discovery Weekend events may have a limited capacity, or age restrictions due to safety risks. Please see below for age restrictions on some activities. All other activities are open to all ages, and family members are welcome to participate. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

We hope you understand it is mandatory for all guests to attend one of the Discovery Weekend's orientations (see weekend schedule) before joining us for events in which animals are present.

For the Discovery Weekend Sanctuary tours, parents need to bring a car seat for children ages 0-4 years and a booster seat for children ages 5-7 years, if you wish to ride in the tour bus.
