    This was just posted by the Lion Habitat Ranch.
    I don't understand...I thought Roos had jumped through all the appropriate hoops. :(



    "Today Roos and more was voted out of business as of Dec 31 2016.
    To all their supporters and friends we offer our sincerest sympathy. Lion Habitat Ranch is now the only non profit, non casino,
    multi animal attraction left in the county.
    We welcome any support from the community to keep growing and building our educational programs where clark county and home schools, girl scouts, boy scouts, and girls and boys club come to learn of the need for protection and care of all animals in the wild and their habitats.
    Keith Evans
    President"

    From Roos FB page today....
    We truly appreciate your support and patronage, yet the time has come to find our beloved animals new homes where they can continue to thrive.
    Come to the zoo on December 17th from 10 - 4pm. Suggested donation of $10 at the gate, all ticket holders from other dates will be called by zoo management in the next week. All offsite private functions will be honored until December 31st.
    Meet the keepers, and say your goodbyes to these wonderful animals.
    We are grateful for your final show of support.

    Official Press Release 12/8/16

    Roos-N-More Zoo, previously owned and operated by Jay and Val Holt, has been under the direction of the Board of Directors since mid-2016. During that time, the Zoo has improved the facility, ensured the heath and safety of the animals, and worked hard to meet Clark County and USDA standards, as well as seeking ZAA accreditation. Within the past two weeks, the USDA awarded the Zoo a clean report of operations.

    The Zoo was up for a use permit renewal at this week's County Commissioners meeting. The decision was made by the Zoo to withdraw its application, thus closing the Zoo to the public. By withdrawing the application, the Zoo can look to the future and work with the Commissioners to reapply for a use permit application for the sole purpose of educational outreach. As the Zoo transitions into this new venture, most animals will be re-homed to accredited partner facilities so that they can continue to thrive.

    Roos-N-More thanks the public for their overwhelming support. As the process of rehoming animals begins, any volunteers or donations would be gratefully accepted.
