Knowing the cats are taken care of makes one realize this place is needed. They have the food they need, space to run, and a place of safety. Knowing why they are there is the hard part. The general public at large should never be given a license to "own" these large cats. A cute lion cub will grow up.... More

This is an amazing place that does incredible work! You go on small tours of the enclosures with an educated staff member. They tell you the stories of the big cats and you can ask questions. We've been here a few times when were driving through and have had a variety of really awesome experiences. It is at a very... More

We were sent to the rescue centre by friends who are subscribers to the centre in order to help them rescue and rehabilitate these wonderful large cats. There are not only lions and tigers but other felines such as puma, lynx, and bobcats. Many have been rescued from people who thought they would make a cool pet. Some are ex... More

The tour of the big cats was about 1 hour long. The staff was full of knowledge. Very well cared for animals. They even have a house you can spend the night at with special privileges.

One of the best weekends of my life...! About a 4 hour drive from the Chicago area - we visited the EFRC for the 'overnight experience' on November 1, 2014 (left the 2nd). On the 1st, they had the annual 'pumpkin party' for the cats - which is the only time you get to do a self guided tour in... More

This place is well worth a visit and your support. There are well over two hundred animals on site that have been rescued from a variety of situations. I visited with a youth group who were given a behind the scenes look at the facility and I have nothing but good things to say about the Exotic Feline Rescue Center.... More

This place had me a little worried when we first arrived as some of the smaller cats were in small enclosures. My concerns were quickly put to ease once we got to the larger cats. The enclosures are large, they are well fed and well cared for rescue animals.

We really weren't sure what to expect. As others have mentioned it is really incredible to be able to walk on a path so close to many of the animals. Most seemed curious enough to want to be seen too. We heard them roar, purr, and make other noises that you usually don't hear when visiting a zoo. Their enclosures... More
