A big hit with my 10 year old grandson

My grandson and I went on a trip to Florida for his 10th birthday. We went to Busch Gardens, and Clearwater Aquarium and Big Cat Rescue. We took the sunday morning tour for kids. He said that was his favorite part of his whole birthday weekend.!

Volunteers were wonderful. The tour was eye opening and somewhat sad because these beautiful animals are in captivity as the product of human ignorance, however, getting to see such amazing creatures up close was truly wonderful.

All of your money goes to the big cats, definitely worth it!

Supporting the big cats

I liked the tour but felt it was a little rushed. For the money it was well done and very organized. The enclosures looked well maintained and the animals well cared for.

Exceedinglyworthwhile--would recommend!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We are locals and are delighted that Big Cat Rescue is located in our community. While our guide was enthusiastic, attentive, warm and wonderful--it helps for children if s/he speaks fluent English. Also, perhaps for our emerging Hispanic community--why not offer the recorded tour assists in Spanish as well? Really appreciated the obvious care of the animals and the nod to their real comfort (and not just an entertainment as lots of other attractions are starting to be) -- and the reverence we felt associated with their plight. It was a wonderful, memorable day...

We had a great time. There were a lot of sad stories and you guys asked for money quite a bit, other than that we had a great time.

A Heart Moving Day
Fri, Oct 2  3:00 PM dick38 Male 70+ Local Family Without Children
Big Cat Rescue is far more organized than I expected. I was surprised by the number of volunteers that assist you and the animals. Everyone was so informed and dedicated. What was so impressive was that each of the cats had its own biography which you heard clearly through the supplied receivers. Most of the information was heart-wrenching sometimes to the point of tears. The guides added the special details about the cats and their daily life at the facility. When it was over, you knew that you needed to do something to help these beautiful animals, and you knew that you just had a lifetime experience.

Great experience

Although it is sad hearing the cat's histories, it's uplifting to know that places like this exist and are trying to make the world a better place. They admit to making mistakes in the past and genuinely want the big cat trade to end so that there is no need for places like this. It did not feel as if they were exploiting the cats at all, and the vacation rotation was great to see.

No gore
Sat, Sep 26  9:00 AM russhost Male 60-69 Local Individual
The Big Car Rescue uses the terms "bone crunching" in their advertising of the feeding tour, so my wife opted out. I went by myself to watch the old cats gobble down a soft raw chow that looked like sausage stuffing. Some got chicken breasts that they gnawed on or swallowed whole, depending on the size of the cat. There was no blood and no bone crunching or gore. Matt, our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He was knowledgeable about the cats and personal with some, but always respectful and careful. Main message: a smart person does not try to pet these kitties. The best part of the tour for me was hearing a lion roar in the distance.
