Terrapin is a PRIVATE facility and is NOT open to the general public for walk-in visits. The privacy of our clients and boarders is very important to us. We also prefer to avoid interruptions while working with our vet and rehab cases. For those reasons, we ask that all visitors please call ahead to schedule an appointment.
