The baby serval named "Buddy" is back for a return engagement. You'll be able to photograph Buddy in an open field during this event. This is great chance to get closer than usual to one of these beautiful creatures. Buddy is a kitten, but he has his teeth and claws. As always it is important to follow all the guidelines set by the staff and volunteers of Panther Ridge.
**NO REFUNDS. Due to the number of no shows at the previous events we are forced to require a non-refundable up front payment for all participants. If you sign up and can not make it you are free to transfer your spot to another person and have them reimburse you for the cost. These fees go toward helping Panther Ridge continue their efforts to help these beautiful animals.**
We will be meeting at 10am, and the tour is limited to a maximum of 10 people. The cost is $53/pp via PayPal when you RSVP. This is a non-refundable donation. To make sure that Panther Ridge receives the full donation we had to raise the price by $3.00 to offset the PayPal fees charged. This is still a tax-deductible donation to a wonderful cause.
This event is just for the up-close encounter with the serval kitten. If you'd like to also tour the rest of the facility, there is an additional $25.00 fee payable on location, by cash, or check.
