A Year of Giving!
January: Emergency Responders Appreciation
Thank you seems appropriate as 2019 comes to a close. We are grateful to all of our guests who come out in support of the ranch whether it was the first time or the tenth time. Your patronage here at the ranch helps us maintain and care for the animals that call Sharkarosa home. In the spirit of giving, as we receive so much from our sponsors, guests and community, Sharkarosa will be recognizing and/or giving back each month! Stay tuned to our social media accounts and this website for further announcements!!
During the month of January we will be honoring our emergency responder personnel, including Police, Fire and Medical! Sharkarosa gives free entry to all emergency responders with ID year-round, but for the month of January each member of their immediate family will also receive one free bag of animal feed!
Come out and join us this January to show your support for these families who sacrifice so much for us when a crisis occurs.
Sharkarosa is open to the public each Saturday and Sunday, year-round, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
With Regard to Groupon From our COO/Director of Operations:
To our guests, both old and new:
Recently, we had someone threaten to give us a bad review because they didn't understand our Groupon Policy. Our Groupon policy is a contract with Groupon and, simply put, states that you can not use a Groupon the same day you purchase it for Sharkarosa.
This policy is reiterated on all of our social media, our website, our front gate and our ticket window. Primarily it is on the Groupon site listed in the fine print which should be read prior to purchase.
We appreciate your continued support of the ranch. Please understand our staff is simply doing their jobs and following the protocol set up with Groupon.
With humble gratitude-
Nancy J. Gorman,
Director of Operations/Chief Operating Officer
