This place is wonderful. Yes you drive on some back roads in seemingly the middle of no where but it’s perfect for these cats! The fact that this place has to exist is sad. The cats that are here should not be bred at all...More

Out in the middle of nowhere, conveniently located right off I-70, is the closest you will most likely get to lions and tigers. The 2nd largest big cat rescue in the the states, the largest you cannot tour. EFR offers a 10 dollar tour, takes...More

Beautiful rustic setting. A guided tour to observe a variety of exotic cats rescued from domestic homes. I loved hearing the stories of each animal. A very up close educational experience. I recommend everyone who loves animals visit the Exotic Feline Rescue.
