Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: This is a non-profit organization. Is listed as a zoo, but it is more educational. They rescue Lions, Tigers, and Leopards. They have night tours, and morning feeding tours. You can buy a meal [a chicken] which they will feed to one of the big cats. When that 4-wheeler comes by, all the big cats are at attention. It really is a great experience. Barb

If anyone is in the area you need to stop here. The cats were very active because they like cooler weather. Everyone was friendly. It is a very good cause!

My boyfriend and I stopped at the Big Cat Rescue on our way home from the Dells. It was nice way to spend about an hour before hitting the road. You can tell the cats are well taken care of, they all look very healthy with beautiful coats. It was also really cool to be able and see such amazing animals up close. We made an extra donation too watch one of the tigers get fed a frozen chicken which was definitely worth the 12 dollars. Also bring your camera, as they don't mind if you take pictures.

We enjoyed every minute of our time here! The animals are amazing and so active. The workers are friendly, helpful, and interesting. They are willing to share and teach all about the animals. Our family was there for several hours and enjoyed watching the big cats. One of the lions was roaring up a storm because he was protecting his tiger friend that was in the cage with him - the workers made sure people did not stress him, but he was just amazine to listen to. We CANNOT wait to go back!

This place is so neat. Its is so nice to see these cats have a good home, they seem really happy and healthy. It is better than a zoo because you can see them pretty close up. Please go when it is a little cooler because the cats are more active. It is amazing what these people do with just donations.

This is a great stop in the Baraboo area. My daughters aged 12 & 13 loved this place. Truth be told so did my wife and myself, and everyone else we spoke with that day. The state has an influx of knuckleheads who own baby lions and tigers until they realize they actually get bigger. Big Cat Rescue to the rescue! These guys (volunteers) do a great job. The cats are well taken care, active and give you a much better view and perspective than any zoo I've been to. Their names and stories are on the pens.We spent a few extra bucks and were able to have the staff feed the cats a couple of frozen whole chickens in front of us. Really incredible to watch. My girls were making plans to return when we left.
