W e had a great tour guide and the animals seemed very well cared for. Great place!
Knowledgeable tour guide, well kept area for
Animals. Ability to see many animals.
Took our friends from the east coast and they were thoroughly impressed, we would like to go back for a feeding tour since a lot of the cats were hidden due to the heat of the day. The guide was very helpful and quite entertaining.
This is our fourth visit to this amazing sanctuary. A variety of big cats live here who are obviously very well cared for. Their enclosures are large and shaded with places for them to get out of sight if they chose. This is Not a zoo. The cats aren't forced to be on display. The guides are knowledgeable and the tours are well paced. Definitely recommend a visit.
Love what you do for these beautiful animals
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting but I was expecting to see more cats.
All animals are obviously being treated properly. Workers are respectful to the caring of the cats.
Our tour guide was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and passionate. I was so impressed what the sanctuary has accomplished in caring for these animals, not to mention educating visitors about the laws that are negatively impacting big cats and the importance of getting these laws changed. Great experience.
i was very pleased with my day tour. the overall message of the rescue came through in each cat's story. i felt like it was a very personal look at what the social problem of people improperly housing exotic animals means to these cats. some had been privately owned. i found myself nodding with everything our tour guide said, and came out of it with sobering stories to share.
with that in mind, i was glad to be able to enjoy watching the cats roam about their enclosures. the bobcat and one of the jaguars we saw was very outgoing and loved to strut for the cameras. we even got to see a tiger laying on her back with her paws up and eyes closed like a house cat. the whole tour was enjoyable and made up for the florida heat and humidity.
Very informative and interesting. Happy animals and staff.
We found it very i informative and the keepers not only knowledgeable but very caring
I loved our time and Sherrie (driver) was a delight to talk to. So many of the cats where napping, But that's okay. I will enjoy watching them on my home device. That trip was one off my bucket list. Meant lot to me.
Great place doing good things for needy animals. All the cats look well taken care of.
Making this trip to the Big Cat Rescue was on my bucket list and I loved every minute of it! The guide was amazing and the staff too. Thank you for an amazing experience! I loved seeing the tigers 🐯 ❤️
Tour guides very informative & able to answer any questions, the headsets are a great idea to give the cats stories as this was not available on our previous tour.
The experience was informative, extremely interesting and the animals are beautiful. Big Cat Rescue treats these animals with a lot of empathy & respect. In all, a wonder to see.
Loved the purpose of the establishment and the very intensive care the animals receive. It’s very clean and informative and would love to go again for a feeding time tour. Two thumbs up!
I was impressed with how clean it was and was even more impressed when I heard some of the stories of how the cats got there. Some were heart-breaking, but to see how well they are now treated now with the staff, facilities, etc. was gratifying to know they will never be mistreated any more.
I learned a lot about the cats and how they were rescued. It was very interesting and informative.
Best sanctuary in florida!
Very knowledgeable guide (Barb), well maintained shelter for these beautiful cats😊. Willl become a volunteer very soon!
Great to see some of the cats, friendly and informative staff. I didn’t love the electronic audio and liked to when the tour guides did the describing.
As always, we had a great tour. Thanks to Lisa for all the great information. We bring all out guests to BCR so we go at least 4 times a year.
Tour was on time, tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the mission of the Big Cat Rescue. Grand kids loved it!
We have visited Big Cat several times in the past and always enjoyed it. This time we brought friends from up north and they loved it!
Your mission is wonderful and your respect for the animals shows through. We enjoyed the tour guide's comments and knowledge of each Cat. We will be back!
Highlight of our week in Tampa!
