New this year at the Melon Patch is Animal Magic! 

Through our ever-popular, live performances, we have shared our knowledge, respect and appreciation for the animals that share our planet.  Educating the public and promoting conservation are just a couple of the many ways we show our commitment to the animal kingdom.   When local animal control officers are confronted with a
dangerous exotic, we’re sent in to rescue the often illegally obtained “pet.”
