A rustic Spanish-style farm in the heart of San Juan Capistrano that's been standing since 1890 promises more creatures than just the area's famous swallows. The picturesque estate is part of Zoomars?an all-ages petting zoo that's USDA-approved for cleanliness and the place where more than 200 animals call home. The residents range from the familiar to the exotic: goats, sheep, and kunekune pigs mingle alongside exotic emus, zebus, and zebras that greet visitors for pets and feeding. One of the zoo's most popular areas is the guinea-pig patch, where some of the farm's fuzziest and friendliest creatures reside. Zoomars also features family-friendly attractions ranging from a miniature train and pony rides to the newly installed playground with four slides to the rustic Miner's Gulch, where panning the water reveals rare treasures such as gemstones.

Meet the Owner

Owner Carolyn Franks started down the path to animal care in college when she created her own line of dog toys. She soon moved from New Jersey to California where her passion snowballed: developing a full line of pet products, hosting an animal show for kids, running a chain of exotic bird stores, and even traveling to Brazil to learn about animal conservation. In 2005, she used her knowledge to take over the Jones Farm petting zoo, expanding its pens and transforming its brand into Zoomars.

Franks is joined by a well-trained staff of zookeepers and wranglers who share her vision in entertaining kids?and teaching them how to interact with the animals?as they are in caring for and shepherding mammals and birds.

Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At more than 40 Southern California locations, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.

Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically-based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.

At Crown Valley Animal Care, the list of pet-saving services rivals that of any human hospital. In their tireless pursuit to keep pets healthy, dedicated veterinarians use modern technology on furry, fluffy friends. Their laser surgery eschews traditional scalpels for highly precise cuts, while ultrasounds and digital radiology detect any potential inner problems. Professional groomers also comb through matted coats, restoring pooches to pristine condition. In addition to providing dentistry, wellness services, and an in-house laboratory for tests, the center?s staff furnishes warmer, fuzzier facilities as well.

Pet boarding suites provide ample room for dogs to lounge and play. Tiffany lamps, soft beds, and pedestals accommodate visiting cats?be they aristocats, blue-collar cats, or cats with any other color of collar.

In Real Deal Casino Party’s elegant poker packages, staff members set up a deluxe Vegas-style Texas hold ’em table at a home or location of choice. When guests arrive, a professional, experienced dealer can help players brush up on the rules with a 10-minute tutorial, including what kind of flowers to buy in order to woo Lady Luck, before players gather around the table and ante up. Tables are ringed with padded armrests to save sensitive elbows, and guests can store their shaken martinis in the cup holders set into the table's inlaid wooden border. After the party, staff will clean up poker supplies so that hosts can relax, play tiddlywinks with leftover chips, or count their winnings. Dealers sport a tuxedo vest, bow tie, and black dress pants to bolster a classy atmosphere.
