Wild Wishes & More

Kingdom Zoo Wildlife Center

The Kingdom Zoo Wildlife Center® is a micro zoo that houses 50 species of exotic animals from six continents. Our purpose is to bring the redeeming love of Christ to hurting children through wildlife encounters and to educate the public about wildlife conservation.

The facility is the hub of our activities that includes the Wild Wishes® program and outreach to various children’s facilities.

Our center was founded in 2014 and we have grown from a handful of animals like our ferrets and hedgehogs.

This collection of animals has grown quickly through our contacts in the zoological world and keeping a vision to have a broad range of wildlife to inspire children that might not have ever heard of a kinkajou, degu, lorikeet or a host of other animals that we are blessed to work with and care for on a daily basis.

"Two of my greatest heroes growing up were Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom," Moore said.

"Perkins was a zoo director on top of his television work and to think I get o do something similar on a smaller scale and work with hurting children is amazing. Every time we educate children about wildlife and wildlife conservation I think of all of those who influenced me. It really is a dream come true."
