Thank you guys for everything It was so lovely. I invited my family to it and they adored it Keep up fellows I look forward to come again
This was a great learning experience for both myself and my granddaughter. She was telling others about the abuse/neglect of the big cats. You do great work!
All aspects were excellent!!' Booking was a snap. Direction to facility were clear. Our guide was knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Most importantly was sharing their missing. My wife and I will be back.
Very educational, so much I didn't know about these beautiful animals. Thank you All for what you do to protect them.
Our guide was wonderful - he is very involved with the cats - their personalities, and their likes and dislikes. he was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the animals habitats and with how sleek and beautiful they all were. BCG is clearly doing a fantastic job with these animals and always putting the cats first. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Pat Gispert
I am so happy that the big cats have been rescued to a forever home with an incredible human family. Your dedication and care is inspiring.
It was a hot day but hearing the stories of each animal was very endearing and brought to life how mankind interferes with nature for profit. I will never think of a baby lion or tiger in the same way and will never pay money to people who have them for profits. I'm also very pleased that the lions can retire to this facility for care and rest.
We love Big Cat Rescue and everything they do. We have been before and will be going again.
They would have gotten five stars, but a lot of the information on the cats was outdated. I did learn a lot about Big cats and their struggle to survive in captivity. I did not realize there is such a big problem with private ownership of these animals. Never new they are a favorite of drug dealers and are treated very badly.
of not treating them as pets but giving them as much freedom and natural surroundings as possible. The volunteers truly seem to care about the majestic animals and give educational information that is not readily available.
I have been a long time fan of big cats, and being afforded the opportunity to see them up close was amazing!!! Unlike visiting the zoo, the cats were very accessible, and we got background information on the history of them. It made the experience more memorable.
What a wonderful experience we had. The tour guide was very knowledgable and answered all our questions. The animals all seem very happy and comfortable in their environment. Thank you for your compassion and perfect living space for these special Cats.
It was sad the circumstances of the innocent felines, but to have a safe place where they can love out the remainder of their lives in a manor where they are loved, cared for, well fed and medically taken cared of with the best that is to offer is what amazed me the most. I am honored to have brought my son to experience this organization.
I loved seeing those amazing creatures saved from heartbreaking conditions. God bless you all!
The tour guide was so knowledgeable and considerate of all questions! The tour lasted about an hour and a half, but jam packed with information and photo opportunities. There was mostly shade throughout the tour, however I would suggest dressing and packing appropriately for warm weather. I would definitely recommend Big Cat Rescue as a must go place for those who either love big cats, or just love to learn through experience.
Loved seeing Cameron and Zabu again. Our tour guide was very informative and I loved being back at Big Cat. Thank you for all that you do. Your hard work does not go unnoticed.
Great way to see the big cats up close in a humane setting. The staff does a great job caring for abused and neglected cats
I was very impressed with how content all the big cats looked. It is obvious that everyone at BCR puts them first. The tour was fun, and we got to learn about the cats and their stories. Some of them are truly heartbreaking...thank you BCR for all that you do!
Our guide, Rebecca was very nice.
The Big Cat Rescue is a very thought provoking experience and certainly makes you see captive cats from a very different point of view. This is our 2nd visit and we will certainly return again-unless you acieve your goal to go completely out of business because no more big cats need rescuing!! The animals here are so well cared for and although ideally they should be living in the wild the cats here could not survive in the wild and they certainly have the next best enviroment to live out their days. I defy anyone to leave Big Cat Rescue without being truly moved at the plight that these poor creatures were rescued from.
I enjoyed the walking tour of the cats, but wanted to ask additional questions while walking.
Great tour guides & I appreciate the dedication of your staff to the mission :)
Friendly and knowledgable staff! Beautiful cats! Such a great environment.
You are giving these animals a fighting chance to live out the rest of their days in a peaceful and safe environment. They are now able to rest in luxury.
The place was clean, the animals looked healthy and happy, the tour Guide was polite and informative, overall an exciting experience
Loved it! Very educational and moving!
As an Animal Lover, I Love Rescues and Sanctuaries! Profit for the animals Not profit from them. No breeding or selling. This is just a nice little retirement village for wildcats(that have been previously or illegally owned ). I loved most of the lay out. The cats looked good, happy and content with their lives!! I love my pics and shirt! We chose to vacation in/on the Tampa Bay .. Just to visit the Big Cat Rescue! (Part of a birthday gift) I recommend it the cat lovers. It was about 10 mins away. (And the local wildlife was perfect) I hope you enjoy!
Very educational and eye opening!
This place is amazing. You can really see these big cats are well cared for. Please support places like these that make a difference in the lives of these beautiful cats, Thanks, Karen
Staff was great and the tour guide was very informative. The grounds there are very well kept and it is a safe place for all of the cats.
