My daughter has wanted to visit you for many years. She loves cats of all sizes, and is especially impressed with the work you do there. Though it was a rainy day, the private tour was very informative and the guide was especially helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you all for making this a special time for her and her husband! Thank you for all you do to rescue big cats. BTW, we both support your efforts through Amazon and have helped contribute toward the $15,660 Amazon has collected from the 5% contributions on each purchase!

Big Cat Rescue is an extraordinary place for giving these Big Cats their furrever home. The care is superb on every level From with details of food, compassionate and deeply loving daily care, to any medicos attention possibly needed. Their every concern is considered. The level of relaxation, engagement, and playfulness of the cats is a testimony to the quality and type of care they offer. All the Keepers, interns, staff are exceptional. I brought a group of four to attend multiple private tours and everyone was equally impressed and pleased.

I have been waiting for a decade to see the cats in person. Barbara was very friendly and knowledgeable. I haven't gotten to go thru my photos yet, but will share with you. The new gift shop was wonderful. I wore 2 of my shirts over the following week we were travelling.

our private tour on May 2, with our guide Fred, was fabulous! we decided to walk the tour instead of ride to get a more up close experience. Fred was truly knowledgeable and engaging. He told us the various cats backgrounds, feeding habits and personalities. The work thats being done at BCR is noble and heart warming. To see the dedication that BCR has was truly uplifting. We encourage you to go to BCR to see the incredible work done selflessly by all involved. Bravo!

We had a very knowledgable and friendly guide on a relaxed golf cart driven experience. We stopped anywhere we wanted to see more of a cat. We photographed with great shots. We learned so much about the different species and the personal stories of the cats. Just a great experience!

We were welcomed and told what to expect. We did not expect to be driven by a golf cart. Thank you. Our guide was so knowledgeable about the cats and so very friendly. We asked so many questions and she did not mind. She spent as much time as we wanted to watch the tigers especially. We will recommend this stop to our friends.

My 11 year old daughter watches your youtube channel all of the time. She wanted a visit to Big Cat Rescue as a christmas present. She was not disappointed. Our guide Pam, was very knowledgable and we really enjoyed our tour with her. We learned so much about the circumstances in which these cats are rescued and it is heartbreaking. Thank you for educating the public about this issue. My daughter is already talking about interning with Big Cat rescue when she gets older.
