National Endangered Wild Animal Research & Conservation Center, Inc. (NEW ARCC)'s Petting Farm is a non-profit organization offering opportunities for children and families to learn about annimals. The non-profit organization was founded in 1985 by Steve and Debbie Collison out of their love for animals and concern for the future and the Petting Zoo opened in 1990 with the mission to introduce children of all ages to animals in their natural setting. Tours are by appointment only and weather permitting. A tour includes introduction to the animals, some available to pet and some to feed, and a hayride. Visitors will see horses, cows, Aftrican pygmy goats, Siberian tigers, African wild cats, servals, rheas, emus, exotic waterfowl, peacocks, a pot-bellied pig, miniature donkey, llamas and Bennett wallabies.
