Not what was expected

I thought the habitats would be a little more spacious,some of them seemed a little small. Overall I felt the cats were well cared for and the staff very informative,friendly,and professional. I think the price is a little high for what you get. But respect the work done.We need more places that care for animals besides zoos.

We were very impressed with our guide, and with the facilities for the cats, and we learned a lot. They're doing important work, and these gorgeous animals are lucky to live out their days with dedicated and loving staff. Well worth the price.

Fantastic Tour and Very Informative!

I loved that the tour guides used modern technology- the iPad and individual headset combination was fantastic! And the pre-recorded stories were informative and innovative. The guides were very knowledgeable and I appreciated how they educated us about white tigers- I didn't know that they were genetic aberrations! The only thing I would suggest is having a photo rest or several at each enclosure. To take a good photo, one has to steady their camera and the natural place is the fence line, for which one is yelled at each time. People want to take photos- it's good for your business! I'm posting mine on my blog and Facebook- it helps spread your message and increase visitors. :-)

The people at Big Cat Rescue are absolutely wonderful. It makes me happy to know that their primary interest is the well being of the cats they have and doing whatever it takes to stop the horrible treatment and breeding of wild cats.

Wonderful opportunity to donate to the big cats.

My husband and I enjoyed visiting the big cat reserve. The animals are so beautiful, and it was heartbreaking to hear their background stories. I had to hold back tears with each one. It is wonderful that the center is so devoted to trying to make their lives comfortable. I wish their was more publicity out there about the big cat plight that comes about from the sale of these magnificent animals. "More wild cats for private sale in Florida than in their zoos", is incredible. We did the general tour in the afternoon and stayed for the "feeding tour" after. We did this to not only donate more money, but knew the cats would be more active waiting to be fed. And they were!

Nice experience, very informative
Fri, Apr 11  3:00 PM SWilsonDavis Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was very informative and the grounds/facility were well maintained. My only complaint is this: I made my reservation and paid for it by phone in advance. I was told that, when I arrived, they would apply my AAA discount. They did not do this even though I told them that this was what I had been told.

The tour was informative, and there were a lot of cool cats to see. The admission is a little steep, but it goes to a good cause (CATS).

Fun outing

We enjoyed our visit to BCR and would recommend it to others. We have visited several large zoos as a family, and we preferred BCR to many of them (although, as the folks from BCR will point out, they are not a zoo and have a different mission than a zoo).

I highly recommend this for anyone. I learned so much about the cats. I'm glad they are well cared for now. Easy walking terrain, helpful and knowledgable staff. This organization is empowering!

Adorable and Informative!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful day at Big Cat Rescue. I've been a fan of their youtube page for awhile, and never thought I'd get to visit in person (we're from Canada). I wasn't sure how much my boyfriend would like it, but after the tour, he said he had really enjoyed himself and had a great time. He went in with no real expectations. For myself, I went in expecting an informative tour of the facilities and the cats, and that's exactly what we got. I was really happy with the amount of information they provided. It is NOT a zoo; it is a sanctuary for big cats that were rescued or had to be surrendered. Keeping this in mind, they do amazing work within their community and discuss the importance of education and new legislation. Anyway, the cats are adorable, the tour guide was fun and informative, and the 1.5 hour tour zoomed by! A lot of fun, and the care for the cats is clear. They're a not-for-profit organization, so take the tour and know that your money is going towards caring for the cats!
