We have been twice in 3 months. The kids had a great time. It is great for a 1-3 hour visit. The cats are in cages but they are well cared for and you can see more unique behavior. Worth the trip!

Very cool to see all the types of cats. All outdoors so go on a lovely day and not when hot or humid or raining. Your money supports conservation.

This is a great way to see the big cats up close. Even closer than at a zoo. There quite a number of beautiful cats, including cheetahs. We can take our time and walk around. There are even times when you can watch the trainers...More

I enjoy taking friends that are visiting the area to this unique experience. Seeing the cats up close and personal is exciting. It is sad that the center has to exist but it feels good supporting such a great cause.

So many cats and just a wonderful sanctuary. The memorial wall is just beautiful and shows how much they care for these animals. I live far away but enjoy coming here when in Plano, TX visiting family.

Life in a cage is sad to see. These are rescue animals but conditions for the animals are not sufficient for their quality of life. As a visitor, gravel walkways are challenging for strollers and wheelchairs. Big crowd for Easter Egg hunt but not enough...More

Agree with the other responders. Not a large complex but extremely interesting. Give yourself an hour or 2 to see everything. The staff and volunteers are very helpful and give mini-tours.
