We have been to the EFRC four or five times, and it's a great experience. You get so close to the cats you could almost touch them. The tour guides give you a bunch of information on the cats, and their background. If you go bring comfortable walking shoes, it's a long walk on a gravel road. All of the... More

A friend recommended this place and it was well worth it. You're able to really get right next to the big cats but still feel safe. The guide was amazing, with an amazing knowledge of each rescue animal. We went on a Sunday at 1, right at feeding time, so that made for sn even better experience. We were able... More

Found this place by accident. Decided to stay overnight. Overwhelmed by proximity to animals and ability to sit outside and just watch them. Private tour the next morning during feeding time was worth the money. Take your video camera. Hearing lions roar in the middle of the night was like being in Africa and an experience I'll never forget. Do... More

My daughters wanted to visit this rescue center after reading about it. I guess if your not afraid of large cats that are Very, Very close to you then it may be the place for you. It's in a very rural area and your surrounded by large cats at all times. All the lions, tigers and more are caged but... More

I love this place! You get to get very close with the animals, and hear their heart breaking stories. Many of the animals have come from abusive situations. The place is very natural conditions, meaning be prepared for poison ivy and the possibility of being "marked/sprayed" by one of the animals. You gotta be aware and move out of the... More

I think having rescue centers is really important and valuable. I looked forward to our visit to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center but was a bit disappointed. You do get extremely close to the cats (so close you can be sprayed!), which I know is a big draw for a lot of people, but for me, it didn't really add... More

Very impressed with the knowledge of the tour guide. Jennifer knew every story behind every cat. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The rescue center is pretty much a retirement home for exotic cats. It's a well deserved break for these animals. The center is no frills, no performances, no breeding, just cats that are living out their lives in a caring, safe, low stress environment. The guided tours are given whenever enough people show up. Our tour had 5, myself, my... More

This was beyond words! Our family enjoyed seeing these animals so close and learning how they were rescued. Our volunteer Kerry was just awesome and we learned so much from her. An out of the way gem of Indiana and a definite must see for everyone. All funds help the rescue.we bought cool shirts for the memories and glad our... More
