by Monica Celinski

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.

Presently, the Tiger52 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.
