Turtle Back Zoo does not allow pets on the grounds.

Guide Dogs and Assistance Dogs are welcome. Please inform the front desk staff if you will be bringing a guide dog onto zoo grounds.

Please do not visit the zoo and leave your pet in your car.

The staff checks the parking lot for many reasons, but if we find that an animal has been locked in a car, we will call the proper authorities.  We will also not hesitate to use any means necessary to save your pet if it is in immediate distress.
