This is a non-profit organization. I listed as a zoo, but it is more educational. They recue Lions, Tigers, and Leopards. They have night tours. You can buy a meal [a chicken] which they will feed to one of the big cats. When that 4-wheeler comes by, all the big cats are at attention. It really is a great experience. Barb

Great for cat lovers! Be sure to feed a chicken to your favorite cat! If you go on a cooler day the cats will be more active. They are beautiful animals & it is great they are being well taken care of when no one else is able to. Our teens loved it!

Don't miss this rescue. The beautiful cats were extremely well cared for, happy (well in my opinion), while it was >90 F they were also active and playful! You can tell they are well loved and cherished.

If you love animals and big cats especially you must see this place. They have beautiful lovely big cats and cared for with love. Over all for a inexpensive day trip take the whole family here and see the wonderful cats playing and enjoying their days. I would recommend going on a cooler day as they get lazy in the... More

Must visit if you're in the Dells! We went when all the cats were sleeping but you can pay $12 for a chicken and watch the staff feed it to one of them(Must do!). As soon as the staff brought out the chicken all the cats come out and began pacing and growling for food. One thing I didn't like... More

This place rescues lions & tigers from closed down circus & people who thought having a lion as a pet was a good idea. It's a 1/4 mile walk around the loop to see all the animals, most relaxing or sleeping since in the wild it's mostly what they do for 20 hours a day. A labor of love these... More

This place is really awesome. All the animals they have all very well cared for and rescues from other bad living conditions. The grounds are very well kept and the pens are very large and clean. The fences are only 4 feet from you, and the views of all the Lions and Tigers is awesome.

Came here with family during the Halloween event. It was my first time here and I was impressed with all the animals they have. The Halloween event itself was fine as well and my nephews both loved it. Fun for everybody

It's just a great place to visit. Thankfully these folks help animals in crisis get a peaceful life. It's not a glamorous site, but a million times better then where they came from. Locked in small cages your entire life is cruel. Stop by here and give them some respect and your support.

Love all the Big cats , we try and come up as much as posisble and even doante to the rescue. We come to fund raising events and other things that take place to help raise money for them. My wife like to buy the frozen chickens to be fed to the cats. It also nice to see them calm... More

This family has poured their hearts into rescuing these poor cats. These felines are all rescued from tragic situations. The enclosures are small, but its obvious these cats are well fed, well cared for and loved.
