“Rescued 14 species of cats!”

Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. We are home to over 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts. Our dual mission is to provide the best home we can for the cats in our care and educate the public about the plight of these majestic animals, both in captivity and in the wild, to end abuse and avoid extinction.

As mentioned by others, you do have to call and make a reservation! Don't worry, it's not as awkward as it sounds. The volunteers who work here and very nice and extremely passionate! They truly care about the cats and their well being and you will notice this if you do take a tour. All proceeds goes to the sanctuary and the cats which is another plus.

They give you the back story on all the big cats and how they got there. As an animal lover I'm decently aware of the lack of legislation protecting them, but big cat rescue informed the visitors even more. They even inform you about a specific bill and provide the means for you to call your legislator and request a co-sponsor or for the bill!

Again I greatly recommend! For those who are anti-zoos, remember this is a sanctuary! They are fairly anti-zoos too and only keep the cats here that cannot be rerelease a into the wild.

Love this place! Make sure to visit their website to see what times the tours are. It is a true animal sanctuary. I've been there two separate times. I got to see different sections on both tours. It is this huge property that you would never know was there unless you were looking for it. It is clearly evident that the primary mission is providing a comfortable and enriching environment for the cats, which I love. I love all the different things the staff does to entertain the cats. You can also watch video footage on http://explore.org/live-cams/player/big-cat-rescue-vacation-rotation.
