Even an animal that has powerful muscles, sharp teeth and deadly claws sometimes needs rescuing! Take a Day Tour of Big Cat Rescue Sanctuary to see the home of about 70 tigers, lions, leopards and more that have been saved from abuse and abandonment, and find out how they are given the care and shelter they deserve. On this 1.5 hour walking tour, don’t be surprised if your heart fills with joy as you watch these playful kitties romping and socializing in their new home!
Big Cat Rescue is the one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned exotic cats. Celebrity supporters of the work being done by BCR include Bo Derek, Harrison Ford and Leonardo DiCaprio, and more.
Confiscated from a drug raid, got too old for the circus, neglected by an owner: these are just a few of the stories of this facility’s cats. But now they can enjoy a dignified life of leisure, play and socializing at this accredited big cat sanctuary, which is one of the largest in the world!
Let your tour guide relate their tales of hardship and triumph and take you to see some of the following:
- Meet a pair of frolicking leopards that leap from platform to platform in their fenced-in enclosure.
- See a chirping serval rescued from a basement and enjoying the sunlight it was denied during its ordeal.
- Witness the biggest and most impressive creatures in the refuge; the lions and tigers. Though they cannot be returned to the wild, discover how the sanctuary gives them the most natural existence possible!
We are a sanctuary, not a zoo, so our animals come first. We do not allow people to wander around unescorted. Our tours are all guided and provide an educational experience that includes the plight of big cats in the wild and in captivity and what you can do to save them.
We are closed on Thursdays. We offer guided tours on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday at 3 PM for adults and children 10 and over (no infants!). On Saturday & Sunday we offer tours at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. for adults and children 10 and over (no infants!). These are walking tours and take about an hour and a half. If you have children under the age of 10, including infants, they can ONLY visit by attending the noon Kids Tour on Saturdays or Sundays.
