They do some good work for rescued cats, both big and small! You need to be led around by a volunteer tour guide, but that gives you the chance to have your questions answered.

I have visited Big Cat Rescue in Citrus Park many times and the staff and volunteers are always courteous, the cats are well kept, and in enrichment-filled and large enclosures. The recent posts below have obviously been posted by people who have never been to Big Cat Rescue and all they know of the sanctuary is the inaccuracy shown in a Netflix show. Having been to Big Cat Rescue in person many times, I can say with 100% honestly that the cats are provided the very best possible care, but very devoted and compassionate people. Big Cat Rescue is accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, and they have worked with Animal Defenders International as well as The Humane Society of the United States. If you take the time to wade through the fake, 1-star reviews by people who have nothing better to do than spread false information, you will see the true, 5-star reviews by the many, many people who have visited over the years.
