What To Expect

On this 1-hour wild cat feeding tour, watch big cat keepers feed tigers, leopards, cougars and other feline friends that have been saved from abuse and abandonment — everything from a 30-pound bobcat to an 800-pound tiger. The guide will share the animals’ tales of hardship and triumph, and talk about where they came from, what they eat and how they hunt in the wild.

Big Cat Rescue has the distinction of being the world’s largest accredited sanctuary that’s dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned exotic cats. It is home to about 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species, most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats or retired from performing acts. The sanctuary’s dual mission is to provide the best home they can for the cats in their care and to educate the public about the plight of these majestic animals, both in captivity and in the wild — to put an end to abuse and to avoid extinction.

Big Cat Rescue has a dozen species of cats, many of whom are threatened, endangered or extinct in the wild, including tigers, lions, leopards, cougars, bobcats, lynx, servals, ocelots, caracals — even a Geoffroy's cat and some exotic hybrids. Some of the sanctuary’s celebrity supporters include Bo Derek, Harrison Ford and Leonardo DiCaprio, to name a few.

Keep in mind this is a sanctuary, not a zoo. People are not allowed to wander around by themselves. This tour is guided and provides an educational experience that includes the plight of big cats in the wild and in captivity and what can be done to save them.
