We attended their annual Pumpkin party last Sat (11/7/15). They hollow out pumpkins and fill with meat. Then they place them in the pens and the big cats roll them around until they can get the meat out. Beautiful sunny day and many attendees. They do an amazing job here with the rescued cats. So amazing to stand close to... More

This place was great! If you're looking for something neat, educational and different then this is the place. You can get up close to these beautiful cats. They have over 200 cats in the habitat, not all are on display, but there are several and different varieties. The tour guide did a nice job of explaining each animals story. Our... More

I have been here twice & really enjoyed both times. The cats are well cared for. The tour guide tells the stories of each cat. The cats have pools, balls, plenty of room to roam and structures to climb on. We were there this time at lunch time & the cats were awake & active. We saw a lot of... More

We sort of stumbled into this place. The girls are big cat fans and found this place while googling the internet. What a find. You will not find any signs telling you that this place is nearby. Follow the directions given on their internet site, but you will not know you are there until you see the sign at the... More

If you love animals, this is a must see. Educational about the plight of big cats in captivity. You get an hour long tour with a knowledgeable guide for at most 10 dollars a person. You can purchase souvenirs. Look at their website for more info. Very enjoyable morning.

I had a couple of hours to kill before my flight out of Indianapolis and several people recommended I go here. It was fabulous! $10 for a one-hour tour of the grounds, with lots of cats that were very well taken-care of. It was nice to see how spacious the enclosures were, and to hear the stories behind the rescues.... More

I have been here four times in the last two years and am impressed more each time with the dedication and love everyone who works and volunteers has for these magnificent creatures. You will hear the history of the cats "on display"-- not all are viewed by the public--and realize these people get down and dirty as they clean the... More

I had no idea such a place existed so close to Indy. We found it by accident on Google. Very low key - no frills tour. Over 200 big cats - all rescued. No cubs. They don't breed the cats - only take care of the ones they rescue. Educational and a good way to spend an hour outdoors.

This is such an interesting place to visit. They have lots of rescued animals in this rural location. They do such a great job of taking care of the cats amp d providing large and roomy enclosures for their animals. Definitely worth the visit.

Thank IndySig
