Way to quick, under on hour...

The stories were great, but the tour was way too quick and under one hour not including the pre game where they tell you what to do. Plenty of cats we never saw. Liked it but was dissapointed.

Always an Inspiration & a joy to see the big cats
Tue, Mar 24  10:00 AM Noeletta Female 70+ Local Other
My fourth visit in several years. Brought a friend with me who is a cat lover as well...she had never been there as yet.

The weather was beautiful, our guides were very well informed, enthusiastic, obviously dedicated and protective of the cats. They were happy to answer questions. So sad to visit the memorial grounds where the big cats who died of some malady or mostly from old age were laid to rest....but so much better than if they died through abuse or starvation. So very grateful for this rescue. I will visit again as often as I can.

Emotional stories of these cats

Will return hoping to see some of the other cats. The cats we saw looked well taken care of and even though it is captivity at least they are no longer being abused or not properly being taken care of. .

Great way to spend a morning in Tampa

i have lived in Tampa for years and this is the first time I have been to Big Cat Rescue. It won't be the last. It is a wonderful place to take visitors, whether they are young or old. The work that this place does should be shared far and wide.

Our visit was entertaining and very educational. The animals are well cared for and seem very content. The staff was eager to answer our questions and know the cats well. I will return with other visitors.

Great tour - very informative!

Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Her passion for the animals and the place came through and that's a wonderful thing to see. Nice place to visit and just enough animals to actually see knowing that many of them are not people-friendly. Very nice that they respect the animal's needs as their top priority.

Great for Cat Lovers
Sun, Mar 22  3:00 PM LesliDoares Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
Even though it was midday and the cats weren't all active, it was great to be able to get so close that you could really see them. The guide had a lot of information so that everyone walked away knowing something new. Our group was pretty diverse--parents and young adult children--but we all found it really engaging. The staff/volunteers were great and very accommodating. The best part was being really close to the tigers and watching them play with each other. Knowing that the admission fee goes to take care of the animals makes the experience even more meaningful.

Our group left with a better understanding of why exotic cats are a bad idea, for the cat and the owner. Our guide was knowledgeable about each cat and presented the information in an easy to understand and sometimes humorous fashion. Friends had recommended the Rescue to us and we're glad they did. You'll walk away with a view of life from the cats perspective!

Well worth it!

A Big Cat Rescue tour is very informative and interesting. The guides and helpers are extremely friendly and willing to assist in anything you may need. This organization has rescued these beautiful cats from deplorable situations and has given them a home for life. It is NOT a zoo, and you must go with a guide. It is a wonderful organization...I have been there many times and also support it financially.
