What people say about the Guided Tours
"We visited Aspen Valley Sanctuary because my granddaughter wanted to see a moose. Our guided tour by Elaine was so much more than we ever expected. We met Ella the moose, and so many others, and she fell in love with them all. I suspect she'll be applying for volunteer duty as soon as her schedule allows it. And I will make sure she gets there.
The work you people do is so amazing, I am in awe of you all. Am canvassing my friends and relatives to take this place on as a worthwhile place to send donations for sure. And next time we come, our car will be loaded with all the supplies we can fit in.
Please tell Ella, Tippy, Penelope, Mama and all the rest we will think of them forever, and are happy they have such a perfect home to live in.
