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.

Wow, what an amazing place! This was my first visit and my husband's second. The event was very well organized. Our tour guide was AWESOME ( I wish I remembered her name)! She was very informative and knowledgeable! The tour itself was mesmerizing. There was an abundant amount of food with a LOT of variety...even vegatarian options! We roasted hot... More

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

We went here for a wedding and were impressed with the mission of the center. Animals are rescued and given a safe place to spend their lives. All animals are spayed or neutered. It was a little unnerving to be so close to such big cats! They also have a cabin to spend the night that we may try later...

Had no idea I could hear a lion ROAR so close to home! The Exotic Feline Rescue Center is an action packed way to spend the afternoon. Volunteers give guided tours between pens of big cats; we could tell our guide, Diane, was really passionate about her job. We center is bigger than we anticipated; we saw lots of tigers,... More

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
