The site is easy to find, marked well. We had a guided tour and he was very knowledgeable and was passionate about his internship. The facility was clean although there was some smell. My biggest concern was when he told us that they make the cats fast for 2 days a week. When I asked why he said that they don't eat every day in the wild. My response is perhaps however in the wild that is their choice and their meals are larger than just a tray about the size of a cookie sheet with hamburger and vitamins. They look a little thin and some of the cages look a little small. It's an ok tour but didn't leave me overly excited.

I really enjoyed getting to see all the beautiful and magnificant cats and animals in the sanctuary. The zoologist who guided me through told me the history of each animal. Some were rescured from petting zoos, individuals who thought it was OK to have a large, wild cat as a pet, and retired cats. There are tigers, lions, cheetahs, servals, and more. They are so amazing. The habitats for each is well designed and crafted. The sanctuary put a lot of thought into making this a wonderful location for these amazing cats. I highly recommend seeing the Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge. There is plenty of parking.

Tiger Creek is home to several species of big cats and a few other animals. It had been raining for days when we visited, so the tortoises were roaming the information area for exercise. All the animals appear healthy and well cared-for. We enjoyed reading the backstory of each animal prominently displayed at each enclosure. The entrance fee is worth helping this heartfelt endeavor.
