The Foundation for Animal Rescue and Education (F.A.R.E.) is a registered Canadian non-profit organization that manages Little Ray’s Nature Centre’s physical home and cares for our animals.

Many of the animals we feature in our experiences are rescues.
In fact, F.A.R.E. is the largest exotic animal rescue in Canada!
Your generous donations to F.A.R.E. help Little Ray’s house, feed, and provide professional care for our precious animals.
There are many ways to support F.A.R.E.
We’re always happy to talk to animal lovers who want to help our cause!

Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
Julie can not remember a time when she wasn't surrounded by animals. As a young child she dreamed of a career in veterinary medicine and even though life had other plans, her strong love for nature and all of its inhabitants has remained unchanged.
As a former entrepreneur with experience in marketing, event production, fundraising and partnerships, Julie brings with her a very strong sense of community and connection. She currently manages Little Ray's donor and membership programs as well as fundraising and sponsorship initiatives.
She resides with her family in the Ottawa area, surrounded by dogs, cats, a bearded dragon and a 27 year old cockatiel that she's owned and loved since the age of 16.
Our Ottawa location is open again for Private Tours and VIP Sloth tours following all Provincial and Municipal Covid regulations.
We are looking forward to hosting your group again.
