Saunders Country Critters Zoo and Garden Centre Ottawa
As our greenhouse season began to slow down we found ourselves with too little people contact , having been in business where we spoke to people all day suddenly “Talking to the Animals” just wasn’t enough. Hence the decision to open the farm to visitors. Our farm has evolved into a Zoo while still managing to maintain a farm & garden atmosphere.
Saunders Country Critters is a privately owned & operated farm. We have been raising, breeding, showing & selling exotic & unusual critters since the early 1990’s. In the past several years we have sold our other businesses with the intent of semi-retiring and expanding on our breeding programs here at the zoo. We have a very successful breeding program boasting achievements with endangered and at risk species.

Summer 2007 has been a very hectic summer. With the decision to open to the public we also decided to move our greenhouse operation home to the farm. Opening to the public has meant that a lot of perimeter fencing needed to be installed around a lot of pens to insure that our critters never felt threatened or afraid. Our critter comfort will always be our first priority. In some cases (big cats) perimeter fencing was required to insure the safety of our visitors.
