2-hour Big Cat Rescue behind-the-scenes tour
Gain insider information about the sanctuary from a keeper
Make treats and toys for the cats
Observe a training session between the trainer and an exotic big cat
Your tour starts when you arrive at Big Cat Rescue and meet one of the keepers, your guide for your tour of the sanctuary's inner workings. Make treats and toys that help keep the cats entertained, and then watch as the keeper gives one of your creations to a cat, observing the cat's investigation of the toy before deciding to play with it.
Next up, sit in on a training session between rescued cats and keepers, where the keepers teach behaviors to the cats such as standing up so they can check paws and bellies. Take a walk through the sanctuary, which is home to roughly 80 cats at a time, and learn how they were rescued and their development at their new home. Your tour ends after two hours.
