My absolute favorite thing to do in Florida and a must-do for cat lovers/animal lovers. This was my 3rd time here and I learn more each time I visit. It is a very "up-close" tour of lions, tigers, cougars, leopards, and more. The staff are dedicated to their mission of raising awareness on the abuse of these poor animals, either from private ownership or from circuses and roadside "zoos". The story of each cat is told so that visitors are made aware of the injustice they have gone through. The tour path is well shaded, the enclosures for the cats are large and clean and as comfortable for them as can be. On my first visit I was shocked at the statistics that our guide gave us. It is a very educational "eye-opening" experience. On this last visit my husband and I did the feeding tour. It is more expensive but it was an incredible experience to watch these huge tigers chomping down on a quarter of a chicken with no problem. Cats are not given live food unless they are being rehabbed to be returned to the wild. The sanctuary is run by dedicated volunteers and your donation goes 100% to the cats. The gift shop is well stocked and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. You MUST visit!
