It was good to see this place as a refuge and family for the animals there. $2.75 was a bit to much for an ice dream cone to feed the bears was a bit much as I had to buy three. But over all this is a Truly Great experience and a Great Family Learning experience and value.

Great place for kids and family's. Bob and family do a wonderful job protecting and educating on the animals and what the DEW is all about.

Loved this place. Bob and Julie are awesome!!! So warm and caring to the visitors. The tour with Bob was educational and funny. Bob told about each animal, where they came from, their habits and then shared funny stories. He is a warm hearted guy that has a passion for what he does. The place was clean and the animal...

This is a wonderful animal sanctuary in Mount Vetnon Maine. It's a hidden gem. The grounds and animal enclosures are very well maintained and clean. It is obvious they truly care about the animals they have rescued and care for. The tour was very educational and Bob knows these animals. I highly recommend a visit. We will be back!

We have been coming here every year way before the show Yankee Jungle was a hit, it's a bit of a shame it's gotten so big, too many people, Bob still gives tours but it doesn't feel the same and now the state of Maine has set these rules where you can't see or get near certain animals, ruins the...

We have been vacationing in Mount Vernon my entire life yet I have to admit it took the show Yankee Jungle to get me over to visit DEW Haven. We were not disappointed. My kids were so excited to see lions, tigers, and monkeys. The place could use a little TLC but you can tell they love the animals there,... More

We brought a picnic lunch and used the small picnic area to eat. When we arrived inside the park there was a guide there to show us around.Bob gave wonderful descriptions of each of the animals we encountered. Folks of all ages would enjoy this experience.

We are fans of their show Yankee Jungle. We spent about 3 hours there. We went around once and then did the tour with Bob. It is obvious the animals love Bob very much. They are very well cared for. Many of them came from terrible situations prior to arriving at DEW and are living their days out in a... More

After watching the TV show Yankee Jungle and reading the negative publicity we decided to make the trip from Florida to Maine and check the place out for ourselves. As a couple we went in with my husband thrilled and thought what a great place while I on the other hand was apprehensive and doubtful. We entered and walked the... More
