T&D's is licensed by the state and federal governments to house and exhibit the animals. Both agencies have regulations we must follow. One part of these regulations deals with enclosures. Enclosures are designed with the particular species in mind and their specific needs. For example the regulations include pen size, wire strength and height, shelter, number of animals allowed in the area, etc. At T&D's we exceed all state requirements and either meet or exceed federal requirements. We try to give the animals as much room as physically and financially possible. When funding is available, T&D's tries to provide large enclosures for the animals. At T&D's, our family and volunteers are the construction team! We build 99% of the exhibits ourselves, minimizing the costs. However, materials are still expensive! Please Help !
