We learned so much about the sufferings which many of these animals endured. The work you do is so great. Our tour guide, Emma, along with the audio, were very informative. We have been telling people about BCR. If we are visiting in the area again, we will probaly return. Continue doing your great work. Hopefully the government will outlaw the practice of individuals owning big cats.
Not only was it beautiful to see the cats it was also very educational. Our tour guide was great.
Very impressed. Much more than I expected. All the cats are very lucky to be there.
I really enjoyed this tour! The guide was very familiar with all the cats & their backgrounds/histories. Also their different personalities. The audio recordings that we listened to about the different cats were very informative and eye opening. It was also nice that my friend, who uses a walker, was able to ride along in the golf cart. The cats are just plain beautiful! You are doing a good thing!
We had great time. We will highly recommend it. It gave us a new perspective on the survival and preservation of big cats.
A very rewarding visit. Fascinating and Educational. All staff and volunteers were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
Very nice tour and people very friendly and the animals always a joy to see and hear their stories.
Excellent tour, guides had alot of knowledge of the felines.
I loved seeing the way the big cats are taken care of and loved by the caretakers. The tour guide knew everything about the cats and kept us informed about their backgrounds. history, care etc. and answered all our questions.
This is not my first visit and it never gets old. What you do with these animals is amazing and I love knowing that I've done something to help in their rehabilitation. Keep up the great work you do.
Excellent tour guide. Supportive volunteer/intern. Very educational. All-around great experience!
Interesting histories of the individual cats. A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. An education!
The head phone were good. little more personal history on the animals would have been nice. Guides were knowledgeable. Prices in the gift shop were good.
One of the most amazing things I’ve done!
Our guide was excellent. He had great knowledge of the different cats. Since I am a returning patron, I was pleased that we had a live person and not a tape. The headset, though, made it so easy to understand and hear. With the tape, it became very repetitious. The day was beautiful and not too hot so most of the cats were frisky. We walked through the sanctuary and into parts I didn't remember ever going so it was very interesting. There has been some renovation in the building since my last visit so I was pleased with the "new look". My reservations were made on line and it was nice not to wait in line. Parking was easy. This is my favorite place to bring my guests.
Not only is Denny very knowledgeable about the cats, but it was refreshing to have a tour guide that was so devoted. We truly enjoyed seeing these animals well taken care of, despite their unfortunate position of having to stay in captivity. We are looking forward to watching the cats on the cams and during furure visits!
Visited Big Cat Rescue on 1/2/2018 for a 10 Am tour. Out group consisted of approx. 20 people. It was amazing to be so up close to these beautiful felines and we were able to get some beautiful snap shots. Our guide was able to give us back ground information on the cats and answer any questions the group had. The pens looked clean and the cats were healthy. They even told us people get married at this location. We purchased some wonderful items from the gift shop and plan to make a return visit. Maybe next time we will take the feeding tour.
First of all, the cats. Just being in their presence is an emotionally moving experience. Then, great organization and helpful staff/volunteers. Thank you for all you do for these amazing and deserving creatures to help them have the best life possible.

The Big Cars are all awesome...gorgeous...the 90 min tour was so rushed...as though...the guide did not really care if you actually saw the Big Cat in each enclosure...and they would try to rush by...saying...cat not out now...but every time we would see the Big Cat and point...stopping the guide from rushing by...and then the not so friendly end of line guides would rush everyone...and or just say something rude or aimed at hurrying everyone on...but WE paid to see the Big Cats...and actually be able to watch them for a few more minutes each...seems that was consensus among our tour group....
The tour was very informative. Not only did we have an excellent opportunity to see loins, tigers, and other big cats in a very up close encounter, we also received a lot of educational and insightful information from our guide. It is just a shame that so many have come to Big Cat Rescue after suffering neglect and mistreatment. These are majestic creatures that are now receiving love, care and attention.
the tour was great ! - your tour guide was awesome - love seeing all the cats and what you do for them ! my favorite is Priya it was great seeing her close up and Tiger Chuffs and found out her birthday was the same day mine is that is awesome !! thank you for all you do for the cats i will continue to support you in your causes thank you so much will be back for sure your staff is the best take care merry christmas and happy newyear !! John Wedin !!
Knowledgeable staff, clean facility and a great mission.
Great tour and very interesting. Seems like you do a wonderful job to take care of the animals!
What an amazing experience I had when I visited "Big Cat Rescue" last week on (12/4)! It was my birthday, and I wanted to do something fun, and also give back to an organization that I felt strongly about. I certainly accomplished both on the day of my visit! My volunteer guide (Denny) was wonderful, and all of the volunteers that I encountered were friendly, helpful and very informative. I learned so much about the cats, and their stories really touched my heart! Thanks to everyone at "Big Cat Rescue" for ALL that you do for these beautiful animals, and for helping to make my birthday extra special! I'm looking forward to my next visit! Blessings, Colleen :) **I'm the proud "Mama Kitty" to Isaac (age 2 and 1/2) and Maggie (9 months)! :)
You can really tell these animals are happy! Would choose this place over any zoo! This place takes care of their animals and it shows. We’ll be back for sure!
Denny was an outstanding tour director and we learned so much about the cats, big and domesticated alike. The day was totally enjoyable and we left feeling so good about the excellent care these beautiful animals get.
This place was awesome!
The work that is being done to save these big cats is great. Also the education that was provided to help the cats is very helpful.
This was such an amazing experience. We did the 3pm tour and saw about half of the cats there. You won't ever see them all in one go as they like to hide but you will definitely enjoy it no matter what. I highly recommend going, plus all the money goes back into the foundation to help these big cats!
