The big cats are all here and you can get super up close and personal with them. Great place to take the family to visit. This is a big cat animal sanctuary. I've also volunteered here in the past. They are doing good things here.

This place is great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the individual cats and big cats in general, the enclosures are roomy, and the cats seem to be very well taken care of.

As mentioned in previous reviews, it is in the middle of nowhere, better for the natural habitat aspect. The hour long tour is well worth the money and a great experience for all ages!

The rescue is near...well...nothing really. But if you are in Indy or Bloomington...or just passing by on Interstate 70, take time to visit. The hour-long tour showed us 60 of the rescue's 200 lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, lynx, etc. The proximity to some of the...More

We arrived late in the day so the cats were mostly napping. This is a woodsy rescue where the animals seem very well cared for and happy in large, natural enclosures. Most had "roommates," toys, private areas to hide, and lots of greenery. The volunteer...More

Not a problem-bring your camera/phone. They are all behind fences, but often right next to them. However if weather is bad, you might not see them at all. I took some people there last June on a very hot but sunny day and... More
