Nice to share with my granddaughter so she can learn about the lives of these animals and how to prevent as much as is in her power future abuse and neglect of these beautiful creatures. When we planned this trip 7 months ago she picked Big Cat Rescue to visit.

Tour guides were very friendly and knew a lot about the cats. They obviously care deeply for the animals.We fixed enrichment treats for the cats and watched them enjoy. It was a hoot watching these big cats go nuts over catnip! Each enclosure is spacious and the cats don't have to do anything they don't want to do. There are some cats who like humans to visit, especially Kalli who showed off at little for us! Take this tour- you will not be disappointed.

Good tour but cats were sleeping

I have been an avid supporter of BCR for more than four years, and I have done almost every type of tour you offer. I always enjoy myself and love visiting my favorite cats. This tour was no exception. Our tour guide was kind and very knowledgeable. The only draw back was that our tour was at 11am, two hours after the feeding tour at 9am and during a very warm part of the day. As a result, we saw very few cats. When we were able to see somebody, he/she was asleep or otherwise tucked away out of sight. Of course, that is not at all the fault of our tour guide, and we didn't expect the cats to "perform" for our amusement. However, in the future I will avoid choosing a tour at this time of day, especially during the summer. Thank you, BCR, for all you do for the cats! We hope to see you again soon! - Mindi Meeks, Navarre FL

Beautiful Big Babies

The Feeding Tour is the best way to see these lovely beasts in the heat of summer. Wished the guide spent some time educating the tourists In the group who seemed unaware of the various plights of animals in captivity. For example, Big Cat Rescue has a large area with info and a petition against circus animals, and nothing was mentioned about that. No one aside from us signed it, and we only did bc my wife had been on a private tour a few weeks earlier.

The main purpose of of BCR is education and enlightenment of the public about critical issues which can be changed, which many people and groups are working hard to accomplish.

All that being said, the animals were fabulous and interactive and well cared for and we got some great pictures. Amazing beings, who need human stewardship for a quality life.

We visited the big cat rescue on a hot summer afternoon. The tour was shady and moved at a gentle pace, so that we could view the cats well, but not be terribly disruptive to them. We found the cats' stories interesting and often sad. Some of the cats were lazing around and others gave us a show (on their own terms of course). I am very glad the audio was included with the tour. The work that they do is inspiring and we were glad to be able to visit. If we lived closer I would love to volunteer there.

The Big Cat Rescue tour exceeded our expectations. I like the fact that the cats are rescued and are left to not have to be pushed and prodded to do anything. Loved the whole experience. Would definitely come again.

Friendly staff and you get very close to the cats!

My husband and I went here to celebrate my birthday and it was a lot of fun. We're both animal and cat enthusiasts and we were able to get very close to a variety of big cats and also hear their stories. The staff was friendly and made sure to answer any and all questions. We would highly recommend you check this out, especially because all profits go back to the cats! :)

Good tour with plenty of cats

Professional staff, very informative. Be prepared for a longer very hot walk. Stay hydrated. You will likely be within a few feet of some really big cats. I would definitely go again, but for the feeding tour.

Very clean and well kept. You know the animals are well taken care of. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Gift shop didn't "gouge" you with their pricing. Had a great time.

The tour was good. the only thing we did not get to see many cats 5 or 6 and they were hiding under the wood. I guess the best time to take the tour is in the winter when the cats feel cooler and come out.

If you've ever been to the zoo on a hot day, you'll understand what I mean. We went mid June and it was very hot. The animals were all hiding in the shade and sleeping basically. So not much to see.

Beautiful BIG CATS!

It is wonderful to know these beautiful cats can live the rest of their years out at a beautiful place like BIG CAT RESCUE.

The cats are not bribed to entertain us. They are free to do as they like and they seem very happy & healthy getting their needs met. We can enjoy seeing them & learning about them knowing that they have all their needs met and are being treated very well.

Really enjoyed the experience. I am an avid animal lover and I am in awe of these big cats. Very educational and it has really changed my views on animals in captivity. I was very impressed and moved by the care and dedication that has been given to these animals. Cudos to the staff and volunteers. Great Job!!!! Great cause.
