We stopped here on our way home to upstate NY from a weekend in PA. We really enjoy the cleanliness and ability to interact with animals that the various small family run animal parks in New York State offer, and we thought that this park...More

Visited Claws n Paws yesterday. Wide variety of animals from different countries. Don’t miss giraffe feeding! Enjoyed the black leopard. Highly recommend! Great gift shop.

We visited this zoo and found it a pleasant experience! There are several animals that were active and even got to see a demonstration from one of the staff with the snake! Small enough that you can actually do the whole zoo in a few...More

This is a wonderful little zoo in the woods, however it’s is looking very tired. The paths need to be graded and re-stoned, the animal enclosures need to be freshened up, they need to make the areas more like habitats instead of just dirt areas...More

Was able to get much closer to the animals than at a bigger zoo. The animals were all up and playing. The employees were also very friendly and happy to answer any questions.

I loved the exotic animals. It was fun to see the really big snakes they had. The hedgehogs were really really cute. The snow leopards were breathtaking and so were the jaguars. I had a lot of fun at CLAWS "N" PAWS.

Not usually one to review places but this "zoo" felt more like an animal circus. The animals had the bare minimum space for enclosures, and many of them looked sick, drugged, or maybe even dead. Seeing so many animals in this state was heartbreaking, especially...More

Web site still shows May 1st, weather permitting. The weather has been nice lately, if not today, so I guess they opened. Best to call.
