Dunrovin's Exotic Animal Sanctuary is the only 501c(3) non-profit exotic sanctuary in Moore County, NC! We started with about 10 rescues and are now up to over 200!
We take in all kinds of animals including fish, reptiles, exotic mammals, tropical birds, and even some livestock. All the animals that we have rescued stay here permanently so we know they are getting the best care and they aren't stressed moving homes or breaking bonds with people.

Harvey is our South American coatimundi. He is one of the friendliest animals here at Dunrovin Exotic Animal Sanctuary with his two favorite things in life being belly rubs and food.
Walter is our green vervet monkey. Unfortunately, Walter has a problem getting along with other monkeys so he had to be rehomed to us.
Timmy is our 26-year-old sulcata tortoise. Sulcata tortoises are the 3rd largest species in the world and can get to be over 150 lbs.
Sam is our keel-billed toucan. Sam is one of the birds in our large aviary and always catches people's eye.
Pistachio is our 2-year-old capybara. He was a runt and has been born with a deformity leaving him with only 1 top tooth.
Harley is one of our many macaws. He is a lot of people's favorite here at the park, and loves to play peek-a-boo with our guests.
