Rooterville is a nonprofit home to over 100 rescued farm animals of all types, THEY make it an amazing place to visit!
Come on out to the country for the experience of a lifetime interacting with sweet farm animals in luxury accommodations or bring a tent and "rough" it in your choice of spots on our beautiful 20 acre property surrounded by lots of amazing wild creatures of all sorts and our friendly animal ambassadors.
Maybe you'll spot a bald eagle getting a meal from our ponds!
There's so much to see and enjoy right here at the sanctuary, we have over 100 rescued animals who can't wait to meet you and maybe bum a snack from you too.
If you get bored, there is plenty to do nearby:
Goldhead Park, a paved Bike Trail, Jacksonville, St Augustine, High Springs, Ocala and Gainesville are all within an hour's drive.
Melrose is quaint and rural.
We don't rush here.
Except at feeding time!
You'll get to experience that too. Trolley Tours are free on weekends.
We can't wait to meet you!
You'll come as a guest and leave as a friend!
No smoking, pets or meat prepared on the property please.
