Roos-N-More Zoo is the home that Jay, Valerie, Zach, and Hailey Holt share with over 160 animals. They never started with the intention of becoming a zoo, but as the population of animals increased so did their desire to share them with others.
Jay and Valerie are both Veterinarians who own and operate Roos-N-More Zoo. When they graduated from LSU Veterinarian School, Jay had dreams of becoming a surgeon and Valerie wanted to work in a Zoo. Plans have a way of changing and soon they were parents of two children and running a busy veterinary practice.
In 2002, a Bennett's Wallaby joey named Pogo joined the family and Valerie caught "Roo Fever". Before long, they needed to think about a bigger place to live. One thing lead to another and in 2006 they relocated to Moapa, Nevada with a mob of 15 kangaroos and wallabies.
Soon they wanted animals that they never knew existed. Valerie was drawn to discovering and learning about uncommon species and wanted to share everything she learned. Soon after, their animal collection grew to a size they never could have imagined.
The zoo is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that offers visitors an ed-zoo-cational experience. We believe in conservation through education and hope that the up-close and personal encounters with our animal ambassadors will inspire people to help save their wild counterparts. We are accredited by the Zoological Association of America and are dedicated to making sure our animals are as happy and healthy as they can possibly be.
Roos-N-More is still a work in progress, but we are so proud of what we have accomplished.
"I have fulfilled my dream. I was unable to bring the veterinarian to the zoo so I brought the zoo to the veterinarian."
