2011 Dec 4:  My husband and I, the proud parents of Benjy Robinov had the pleasure of touring the facility October 28, 2011. We are still talking about the experience and telling all our friends about the sanctuary.

A definite destination to Tampa for more people to realize the importance of Big Cat Rescue.

Thank you for making the difference on this planet.

Sincerely,  Elise & Marvin Tepper

My boyfriend and I visited Big Cat Rescue while we were waiting for our late evening flight home, and I'm so very glad we had the opportunity to visit this beautiful place.

This is NOT a zoo and all tours are guided. We did the day tour as I'd heard it was the best experience for your buck, and were not disappointed. Our tour guide, Kim, was friendly and informative, and seemed to genuinely care about the animals. In fact, all the volunteers and keepers that we came across seemed to have love for their animals. The staff are not allowed to touch or handle the animals, and have even figured out ways to keep the enclosures clean without entering. This is because Big Cat Rescue is designed to give the animals as much of an experience of being in the wild as possible.


Unfortunately... the animals here are former pets or performing animals and have seen the worst in people. At BCR, they are given the best care possible, and every attempt is made to help them return to their 'wild' roots. Sadly most of them will never see the wild again due to health or just plain not knowing what to do out there...

The enclosures are tailored to the animals, and the ones for the bigger cats are HUGE. Our tour ended up being nearly 2 hours and still it wasn't enough to experience all the beauty. This place is a blessing for those who need rescuing. The entry fee is $29 per person but totally worth it, and with the money going to feed the cats and maintain, I have no issue with this whatsoever. If you're in Tampa, make this a stop on your journey.

CeciMadrugaI have been a supporter of Big Cat Rescue since I discovered them years ago. The work they do here gives me such a great hope for our all our beloved big cats, especially the Florida Panther, which is critically endangered. They go all the way to make the big cats they care for as comfortable, healthy, mentally stimulated, and well-fed as possible, in fact I'm sure they'd do more if it was at all possible. These are my heroes, and I will be there for them as long as I am around.

PatriciaJeznachVisited this place and it is GREAT
AnneFarsonBig Cat Rescue helps the animals that can't help themselves due to the abuse or mismanagement of humans. (Supposedly the SUPERIOR race). They offer educational tours and have an awesome gift shop that you can check out in person (Tampa, FL) or online. It's a great rehab facility and they assist with returning big cats to the wild (the ones that CAN go back) and make sure the ones that can't be returned have a safe and happy environment for the rest of their natural lives. Of course they feed them quite well and their well-trained and loving staff of volunteers love them all. I hope that when I no longer have to work full-time to support myself and my family, that I can become a volunteer and help Big Cat Rescue in their endeavors.
PamelaDevoidA fantastic organization for cats that need our help.  Best Volunteers and organizers that give up countless hours to support unwanted cats.  I know how expensive these cats are and we want Big Cats to be around for a long time.
Thank You, Pamela Devoid

JenniferAtkinsI love all the kitties, from the biggest to the smallest.

JacquelynHahnThis is a great service.  I recently visited Big Cat Rescue and was pleased to see the catatats provided for each of the Big Cats.
MJBroadbentBig Cat Rescue is amazing and incredibly big-hearted. All the rescue cats have a large, natural, safe space and are well-loved. Such a better life than they had before! It's also a fantastic place to visit. Forget zoos and theme parks; take your family and friends to spend some time at Big Cat Rescue. It will touch your hearts in a way you can't even imagine.

AngelaVanCleveBig Cat Rescue is an organization that I have utmost respect for, they take in many big cats that otherwise would have no chance of being saved, mainly due to others stupidity in thinking they can keep a big cat just because they have a liscence to do so.

CourtneyLarsonThis group really does make a difference in the lives of these cats. Every cat has a day to day existance and thanks to Big Cat Rescue that existance is a pleasurable one.
LaurenHartThe fear and torture these cats experience everyday will be forgotten once they step foot into big cat heaven at Big Cat Rescue.  The love and ongoing efforts to save every cat possible is  something every person who works/volunteers and donates should feel wonderful about on a daily basis.  Although as a rescue organization they are not \god\" and cannot save every cat- Big Cat Rescue does their best and tries their hardest to do what they can-if that means saving a cat/cats or raising public awareness and attempting to change laws- On behalf of all the cats who have been rescued and will be rescued in the future

barbarariddleBig Cat Rescue feeds my soul.
KathleenKirkpatrickI love to visit Big CatRescue
coreyhydeleave wild animals alone in the WILD!
donnaabersmanThey can't open doors, but we can open those doors for them.  Most of these magnificent animals were shut behind doors and abused; we have the gift of the power to liberate.  It feels good!  Try it!
MoniqueMcGeeSomeone has to step up to the plate for all of the voiceless exotics that are bred in captivity and languish in sheds of horror and darkness, all to inhumane ends in the long-run.  This wreckless regard has to stop and until it does, we all have to do the right thing.
JulietteSmockI want to make a difference in a Big Cat's life and let them know that they are loved!
pennyarnettThey're genuinely pursuing safe and natural habitat for big cats - as well as pursuing legislation to further that effort.  It's not commercial, it's for real.
CaseyHaperFew experiences have touched me more than seeing the cats at Big Car Rescue and hearing the sad stories of how they came to be in their care. I can't think of a more worthy cause.
RelytonI've visited, and they are a wonderful organization.
CareyJohnsonEveryone there is totally dedicated to the welfare and education of the big cats.
shriversmithI support Big Cat Rescue because I LOVE cats and they have a VERY WORTHY cause!!!
MadelineGeorgeBecause they do everything they can to help big cats in need of shelter, food & medical care. They are awesome!
TerriHalleThis is for the Big-O FuZZyButtZ and their caretakers who work endlessly to keep them safe from any more harm on this earth.  Thank you BCR for helping spread the word to keep more of these precious WILD animals from needing a place like yours.  Education is key.
ColbyCoxAfter visiting Big Cat Rescue in December I was so impressed with the facility, the employees, the volunteers and all they do for the big cats.  What a wonderful sanctuary!!
LyndaAkinThis is a much needed, very worthy cause
JoannaKennedyfor their good work
BeckyGagliardoI believe in their mission and fully support what they are trying to do.  Get the laws changed so that people can not own these magnificent animals.
AzureHansenHappy 18th birthday to both my little lion Juice and and Big Cat Rescue!!
domuroI don't live in Tampa, so I can't volunteer.  Just wanted to help! Sgt. D.  Chicago Police Department
TracyFozdarSimple........they are doing a fantastic job!
BlakeFordI can't imagine the amount of $$$ just required to feed just one of these big guys.  My monthly $15.00 may not be a lot on it;s own but if everyone donated just a little every month we could really make a difference.  If I can do it anyone can!
VickiAlbertsBig Cat Rescue is a wonderful organization.
LoriUdenbergI think that Big Cat Rescue is the best thing that could ever  happen for these wonderful creatures, since there are so many soulless people in this country that can't see the beauty in these cats in their natural habitat.
MariaSarnoThese wonderful creatures would have no refuge otherwise.
LauraRoperI love cats, no matter how small or how big. If I can help I will.
MinnaAndersen-ZimmerYou deserve to get back the love that you give to your amazing cats!
Collier & AssociatesReal Estate LLCGOD Bless all the animals, may they find Love, Food and Shelter and may those too ill be with GOD at the Rainbow Bridge with all of us who love them so. We will show them our love here and ther forever! I pray for the day animals and humans can live in peace and have respect and true love for one another.
PaulaMatherWonderful, caring charity.
MichelleWisemanThis is an excellent facility, run by caring, dedicated and knowledgeable staff and volunteers.
ClaudiaBBig Cats are the most beautiful creature on Earth, for me, and helping them is always a pleasure. Like Big Cats Rescue says; what's a 10$? Go to restaurent is more expensive. And this 10$ is about to save a life... I think everyone could do an effort, and giving a litte 10$ is a great way to do it. After all, if the Cats are so risk-if -if all species are , finally- isn't due to human beings? Perhaps we cannot change the past, but we can ensure that their future will be better, them, the first inhabitants of the Earth.
PamelaWaldronBig Cat Rescue is AMAZING!
JenniferHolleyWhat a noble and amazing cause! Thank you for providing a safe place for these beautiful animals to live!
Norma`Scanlonhelping these wonderful cats live out their lives in peace,free from cruel conditions!
RebeccaSaxonI support Big Cat Rescue in every decision they make. I hope we can all band together to make it illegal in the US for these beautiful creatures to be put in such circumstances that we even need a Big Cat Rescue. I am glad they are here until that day comes and will continue to support them as long as I am able.
CaryBautistaAlthough all animals are wonderful, the cats, both big and small, wild or tamed are absolutely regal, majestic and beautiful.  Tigers, my soulmates, are the love of my life.  There is no other cat as awesome and beautiful as these cats.  Mother nature gave us such a treasure in these wonderful creatures and it is heartbreaking that humans cannot respect and cherish these gorgeous cats.
DeniseBrookeBig Cat Rescue does a great service to these cats that would otherwise have no where safe to go. They can live out their lives in a safe, comfortable place. The sanctuary keeps as many trees & natural plants around to stimulatet the animals senses & it is a beautiful place to visit.

BrookieJudgeI'm just so thankful an organization exists to help these abused yet amazing cats exists.
SuzanneSweetenfor the \big hearts\" at Big Cat rescue that help those cats in need that can't help themselves."
RobynDillardBig Cat Rescue truly cares about the animals that they care for.  I have been there several times to visit the cats and have talked to the people who work with them and I come away knowing that the cats are in the best place that they can be next to the wild.  Their goal is not only to take care of these abandoned and abused cats but also to education the public on why these animals should not be kept as pets but should be left to live where they belong-in the wild.
ShereeMarquardsonEverything deserves to live a decent life.....thanks for giving them the option to \live\" instead of be lived through."
MarthaLidralBig Cat Rescue is a wonderful sanctuary that rescues wild cats and takes care of them for life.
alexbatesThis sanctuary is an inspiration and a wonderful home for these damaged cats
DorothyHobbisI support Big Cat Rescue for all of the care and devotion these people give to all of these beautiful cats. Without this care and devotion, I'm sure these animals would not be alive today.
JhaneMarelloBCR provides their cats with a healthy and vibrant environment where they can live in peace and receive the best possible care.  It is a most impressive home for for earth's most wonder creatures - our big cats.
CarolynDistelIt takes a lot of dedication and commitment to take in these cats.  It costs a fortune and can be so heartbreaking.  Bless Big Cat Rescue for taking on this labor of love.
LauraSolidayI have visited BigCat Rescue and was impressed both times at the care the animals received and the dedication of volunteers and staff who spread the word that big cats belong in the wild.
DebraScottBig Cat Rescue's founder and volunteers all work hard to make a difference in the lives of the animals they have been able to rescue.  BCR also strives to change laws to protect the cats, especially to keep them from being pets.  This is a top notch organization that truly cares!

Susan LauraHowellBig Cats rule!!
JeanAlbiniI am an animal lover especially cats (all sizes) I hate the fact that these beautiful big cats are abused, taken in as pets and abandoned.  As much as I would love to have one myself I know they belong in the wild.  I wish I lived there to be able to volunteer on a daily basis.

MeredithMacCrackenNo other organization takes such good care and works so hard rescuing big cats. Thank you!
DeeNormanThese beautiful cats deserve to know love and to live a life free from cruelty and mistreatment!
HelenTanguisI remember as a child seeing the tiger where I lived in the southeast trapped in a small cage with no hope for escape.  It made me feel so sad that I cried for him.
KATHYMCDANIELI support Big Cat Rescue because their purpose is to put themselves out of business by making it unnecessary to have a sanctuary for big cats through education and tireless efforts to stop trade in big cats. They encourage Congress to pass bills that aid exotic animals & big cats and as long as their sanctuary is needed, they will provide wonderful accommodations and much love to those cats who live there.  When a sanctuary is the only option available to these cats other than death or suffering, this sanctuary is one of the best there is!
Mary JoBrinkerBig Cat Rescue respects life, especially precious creatures of the cat family. To protect and heal those who cannot speak for themselves is the highest human endeavor. Man has a responsibility to keep animals in his protective care for future generations. Big Cat Rescue deserves help to carry out their mission.
lesliehaglerI'll never forget my trip to Big Cat Rescue.  A dream come true to see those cats so well taken care of!

sehrishkhawajatheres alot of people who think animals are toys...get watever you want and you can treat it as you wish. well if they for once they thought that animals are no less equal to live on this earth like humans they would no better to respect them...just because we dont speak, eat, talk and live like an animal doesnt mean they should be treated badly....humans are more barbaric savages then any species on earth...we are cruel, ignorant and destructive and we only care for ourselves...well im sick of being one of those humans and want to make a change...i love all animals and believe they deserve a chance to live the very best in there way. we need to stop taking these animals away from there homelands and putting them in small cages merely as eyecandy...we dont want to be put in cages ourselves stop doing it to other species!!

ScottEwingThe Cats are beautiful and the staff truly care for their well being. It's the greatest place for cats to be.
ScottChamberlinTheir work is priceless. One trip to the rescue and you'll be forever sold.
DianePellI've always been an Animal Lover and Cats are my favorite. I feel more people should believe that Animals have feelings too and need our help. Many people believe that the human race is superior, if so then we should act responsible and care for all living creatures and our planet. Thanks to all who care and help.
BobBaumgarnerBigCat Rescue's employees and volunteers are caring people, they care very well for their animals, the grounds are kept clean, the habitats are much larger than the enclosures are in most zoos. Most of these cats have never lived in the wild, so they cannot be returned to the wild. The cats and their caregivers deserve support from all of us.
Sue AnnMessineoBig Cat Rescue is an awesome organization! They are trying so hard to do right by all of these animals, we all need to help.

MichelleCorkWe need Big Cat Rescue to help right all the ignorance of people purchasing these beautiful animals to try and make money off them or keep them as pets.
NadineKostiukAs an emerging Wildlife-Equine Artist, who supports (through my art), the sanctuary best-suited to help the subjects I paint, Big Cat Rescue is one of the very best. They not only provide wonderful 'wild' homes for their felines, but they are extremely aggressive in their efforts to educate people not to inadvertently, through misinformation & blind ignorance, support those horrifically ignorant & cruel individuals/ organizations that  perpetuate cruelty & threaten the very existence of these magnificent creatures. Humanity needs them - wild & free! (
RoseKapkaBecause they provide a wonderful care and home for these cats that really deserve it.  I've been there 2 times and I have seen for myself the care they get.
LisetteMayasI support this organization because of the amazing time and effort the staff and volunteers put in to ensure that these cats live out the rest of their lives in peace and happiness.
DanKaneThese fantastic animals are at our mercy.  They would much rather live in their natural habitat.  We have either destroyed it or removed them from it.  The least we can do is try to make them as comfortable as possible for the remainder of their lives.
ColleenKasperekBig Cat Rescue really walks the walk!  Take a tour of this wonderful place and you'll see for yourself.  They rescue the victims of human greed and ignorance!
Sandor.I adore all cats,,large and small. They need our help!!!!

PatShearHad the privilige of visiting Big Cat Rescue a few years ago and seeing the amazing work that is done there to help these beautiful animals.  To the entire staff: Bless you for all you do!
KimThornadtssonI love what they do for the cats.  They are a much needed sanctuary for these beautiful animals that have been exploited and abused, or abandoned, and they provide a life of comfort and dignity for them.
SteveCarterThese folks do a wonderful job of rescuing all types of big cats from inept or abusive owners, an untimely end at the taxidermist, injuries suffered in the wild, etc.  They do a great job of providing loving care and enrichment for the animals, and educating the public.  A wonderful place to visit and bring your kids, and my daughter's favorite charity.
CarterSandersI am no longer a FL resident, but I really support this organization's good work. I hope to visit next time I'm in town.

JimReganI think felines of all sizes are God's most amazing & wonderful creation and they need our help. Small cats can live with me; big cats can't.
GregMeadowsThank you for everything you do for the big cats!
RenateBellBig Cat Rescue is such a wonderful sanctuary, from the care and attention given, the friendly staff and volunteer crew who make it all happen, the beautiful, amazing cats, big and small, and to Carole Baskin herself, for having the vision and the heart to create this protective, serene 'retirement home' for so many deserving big cats as well as for expanding its effectiveness for students as an educational center. I highly recommend making a donation to BCR. I have visited personally and know each dollar given is appreciated and used wisely.

JoanCarpenterI have been following recent news about circus elephants and was struck by the number of Tigers that are in similar circumstances.  I really have no personal connection with big cats and found your website helpfull to be able to better appreciate them.
DeeDeSantisI support Big Cat Rescue and the wonderful work they do providing safe, natural habitats for abused, unwanted, and neglected big cats.
NicholeYettawBig Cats, like many animals lately, have been unfairly treated.  They are beautiful creatures that suffer because of humans--it's time that humans step up and protect them.  It's time to right the wrongs of the past and make sure these cats continue to be around in the future.
EmilyDamronOur support of Big Cat Rescue is a direct result of the publication we receive from them and our 8 yr old's love for big cats

KatieRughBig Cat Rescue is truly dedicated not just to the care of exotic animals, but also to their long-term needs, and shows this through their tireless lobbying to change exotic animal legislation.
LauraLidralBig Cat Rescue my favorite Florida charity.  I have visited the facility and the cats are so well cared for and they seem happy. The cats that can't be released back into the wild have wonderful enclosures and plenty of enrichment.  Those that can are rehabilited if necessary and released when they are ready.
LisaIannizotoI have personally taken a tour at Big Cat Rescue and I fell in love with all of the cats.  They are so beautiful!  I'm going back to visit again and see the new Liger, Freckles and his tiger friends, Cookie & Alex.
