Great organization and cause

Very informative tour. Made me realize that these animals need someone in their court fighting for them to give them a better life than that which they came from. The sanctuary provides a much better life since they cannot be let out into the wild. The organization continues to fight for better conditions for these animals when they are in the circus or in private homes, etc.

BigCatRescue - a must see
Mon, Sep 8  3:00 PM Dianeest Female 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
Following the Big Cat Rescue on Facebook made me more aware of this sanctuary. Going to visit the Tampa area made this a "must see" place. We took the walking tour and learned lots about the various cats from a very knowledgable volunteer. He told many back stories with great skill and educated everyone in this group. It was hot and humid so the cats were not real active but they were plentiful. Many sad stories on why these cats are living here now but they seem very well cared for and are lucky to be here. Unfortunately, not all cats are taken in here, but they do thebest they can. I highly recommend visiting this place. The very dedicated interns, volunteers and employees need our help with these majestic creatures to make their life better!

I have been interested in Big Cat Rescue for some time now. I was lucky enough to get to go on a Saturday for the 10AM tour. Jessica was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I learned a great deal about the cats - their past and their future - and learned about cats in general. The grounds are beautiful. I would recommend this tour not only because it is enjoyable but because the money goes to a great cause. My thanks goes to the volunteers for giving thier time and hearts into Big Cat Rescue.

We enjoyed the whole time we spent there and plan on going back for feeding tour. The guide was very informative and she was only an intern. The cats looked well taken care and it was very clean. Good job to all the staff and keep up the good work.

Great experience for all ages

I REALLY apreciate my visit to Big Cat Rescue last week. We learn about this attraction in the AAA Florida Tourbook. This accredited sanctuary deserves more visibility because it saves and protects big cats. I saw that the organization is really concern about their big cat's health and happiness. We took a feeding tour as a first visit and since we were the only two on the tour, it was almost private! Willow provided us so much informations about the cats we saw and informed us about their diet, spécifications and their history too. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it so much that we are planning to go back everytime we'll travel to Florida. I highly recommand Big Cat Rescue to everyone, not only cats lovers :)

Interesting and educational tour.
Mon, Sep 1  3:00 PM TCollins6273 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The tour guide was excellent and very informative. We did go on a hot day so the cats were not active. That said, we did get to at least view almost every species. Would reccommend for those who have an interest in learning more about animals, particularly in wild animal rescue and welfare.

Fanastic and Informative Day for every cat lover
Mon, Sep 1  3:00 PM Jane_Cassell Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
Was looking forward to this after finding the place on the internet. Denny our guide was extremely informative and was able to answer all our questions. The cats are well kept in beautiful surroundings, and because there was not much by way of intrusive fencing you felt that you were really close to them. Though you were paying for the tour the cats interest and wellbeing was still of paramount importance, rather than giving into commercialism. Great afternoon activity for all the family (over 10 years) and well worth it.

Tour with pretaped audio recording & guide
Sun, Aug 31  1:00 PM SJDRIZZI Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I don't like using earphone in one ear. Preferred the comments and information of guide. Recording was a bit repetitive on certain information. Great to see the cats have a good environment and are well taken care of by this group!

Absolutely Fantastic Experience!

I brought my daughter over from Orlando for a Keeper Tour as a 13th birthday gift. It was out first visit to BCR and she had been looking forward to it for 2 months. I cannot even begin to express how much we enjoyed our tour. My daughter had many questions and comments for the keeper and she answered them all, never making us feel rushed, but still moving us through with enough time to see everything. Seeing the animals in the habitats up close and watching them enjoy the enrichment toys we had help make was such a treat and it really allowed us to see the playful side of these magnificent creatures. Honestly, I just cannot say enough wonderful things about BCR. My daughter said it was her best birthday ever and she cannot wait to go back. Nothing I write in a review will do BCR true justice, you must see it for yourself. Please go visit these beautiful creatures for yourself!!!!
