M.O.M.S Petting Zoo, nestled in the picturesque landscape of Port Bolivar, TX, is a family-owned and operated sanctuary designed to create cherished memories and nurture connections with lovable animals. Founded by Brandon and Lindsay Kelly, M.O.M.S came to life inspired by their daughter Willow’s affection for animals and the Kelly family’s passion for petting zoos.
The name M.O.M.S, which stands for Mitchells on Madison, is a heartfelt tribute to their late father, Don Mitchell, who passed away in 2021. Don instilled in them the importance of believing in themselves and making the most of life. In the wake of his passing, the Kelly family embarked on this new adventure, creating a space where people could forge unforgettable memories with their loved ones as the perfect way to honor Don’s legacy.
At M.O.M.S Petting Zoo, every moment shared, every smile exchanged, and every memory made is a testament to the love and wisdom that Don Mitchell imparted to his family, continuing to inspire and touch the lives of countless visitors.
