LIBERTY, N.C. — A animal rescue center in Liberty is welcoming back guests just in time for National Wildlife Week.
Liberty Acres Animal Haven & Equine Rescue was open only for a few months in 2020 before it closed due to the pandemic.
Owner Alison Peeler said she began collecting exotic animals more than 10 years ago and is excited to finally share her passion with the community.
"We love teaching about our animals and having people learn all about them," Peeler said at the grand reopening in March.
Her farm is home to zebras, kangaroos, lemurs, camels and many more types of animals.
Peeler and her team provide a forever home for horses that people couldn’t care for or no one will adopt.
“We have probably about 18 horses right now, as well as donkeys,“ Peeler said.
The first week of April is dedicated to national wildlife.
Peeler invites the community to learn more about animals they don't get the chance to see every day.
