Giraffe & Friends Encounter



Come meet and connect with the residents of the animal sanctuary! During the encounter you will be able to feed, take photos, and ask questions with our animal guide. You will spend time indoors with our playful otters, then we will head into the barn where you will feed the giraffe, mini cow, mini pony, tortoises, mini pigs, and maybe more! This is an on-hands wildlife experience unlike any other.  We put you right up in the center of the action with our friendly exotic animals. You will surely take home a permanent grin and memories that last a lifetime, playing with our furry friends here at Blue Hills Giraffe & Animal Sanctuary!
