Archie Futrell and his wife Kathleen are the people who started the zoo. They always loved animals and they were raised on a farm, which is probably why they were attracted to each other. Kathleen also has a degree from the University of South Carolina in biology sciences. We have people working here who have been here since the beginning and even some of their children are here, too.
Support for Our Community
We also support numerous organizations in the area by donating tickets to more needy people that don't have the funds available, including special needs organizations and family support groups.
