A Visit To The
Just a short drive from
Carolina you will find the
Faircloth Zoo nestled away
in the small town of Bolivia, North Carolina. Privately owned by
Bill and Lillian Faircloth, the Faircloth Zoo does not receive any
state or government funding. The business is registered as a
non-profit animal reserve and rehabilitation center.
The zoo that you see today
first began with traditional farm animals, but soon grew to include
many exotic animals as well. Presently, the
acre farm is home to over 115 different species of animals including
tigers, lions, bears, camels, wallabies, donkeys, goats, ostriches,
emus, peacocks, pigs, coatimundis, macaws, deer and many more.
The atmosphere at the zoo is
laid back and you can get up close to the animalís cages, allowing
you a better view of the animals than you would see at larger zoos.
There are also several picnic tables
overlooking a pond occupied by ducks and other animals.
The Faircloth Zoo is located
on McKay Road off Highway 17 in Bolivia, North Carolina and is open
year round, 7 days a week. The admission fee for adults is $6.00 and
$4.00 for children. You can contact the owners at 910-353-6820 for
2005. All Rights Reserved.
