Sharkarosa is open to the public each Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Monday through Friday the park is closed for private events only.  


Oh the difference a day makes!  Yesterday we announced that we would be opening this weekend; unfortunately, our Governor has been left with no choice but to sign the Executive Order below regarding any gatherings in the State of Texas.  The health and well being of us all is at stake.  Therefore, until further notice we will be closed.  Please stay connected to Sharkarosa's social media as we will be making announcements and letting you know about new ways to connect with us.  Thank you for your continued support through this difficult time.

Donations for the animals of Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch

Please visit our Donate page, under the third tab above, where we have posted a list of items that our sweet animals could sure use!  It's a simple list of items used everyday by our zookeepers and that you might have at home.  Before you put them in the trash, or in a garage sale, think about donating them to us!!!

A Year of Giving!

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!!

April - to be announced

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

"What I like most about working here is working with the animals everyday.  You learn so much about all of the animals and you get to see each animal's unique personality." - Cass

"What I like most about working here is getting hands on experience I can't get anywhere else.  Once you learn the ropes you aren't treated like a typical "intern" doing the busy work.  THis has been an amazing learning experience!" - Courtney
