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!
Very well organized. Well informed guide that cared about what she was doing. Keep up this important work.
It was a great time! Very clean and organized. Daniel was a great tour guide

Very informative Gorgeous animals, many with sad stories turned into happy endings. Inspiring!
Great experience. We loved the way you interact and take care of these nice animals. Keep up the good work.
Learned a ton about these beautiful creatures. Was an amazing tour.
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.
Excellent day out! Came all the way from Glasgow, Scotland for this experience and loved it. The intern in charge of our tour was very knowledgeable and my family loved finding out information about the big cats and their plight. I must admit that I was surprised to learn that so many big cats are are kept in captivity or privately owned in America and around the rest of the world, many of the animals suffering in poor conditions for the general public's scant enjoyment. It was clear from our visit, however, that Big Cat Rescue now puts the welfare of animals before commercialism and from what I learned on the day I will certainly question the morality of any future visits to attractions which has animals in them. The staff were all fantastic and the gift shop was so reasonably priced that I felt obliged to leave a donation but the attraction itself could have been better signposted as it was difficult to find even with the sat nav. Well done and keep up the good work!
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.
