I visited this place a few years back. You are very close to the cats but they are in very small enclosures. It reminded me of a pound or humane shelter for big cats..they cant be happy there

I've visited EFRC few times over the years and I just can't stay away. I became a volunteer to help in any way I can to educate people on the lives of these Cats & others like them & how we can help.
