Not only is Denny very knowledgeable about the cats, but it was refreshing to have a tour guide that was so devoted. We truly enjoyed seeing these animals well taken care of, despite their unfortunate position of having to stay in captivity. We are looking forward to watching the cats on the cams and during furure visits!
Visited Big Cat Rescue on 1/2/2018 for a 10 Am tour. Out group consisted of approx. 20 people. It was amazing to be so up close to these beautiful felines and we were able to get some beautiful snap shots. Our guide was able to give us back ground information on the cats and answer any questions the group had. The pens looked clean and the cats were healthy. They even told us people get married at this location. We purchased some wonderful items from the gift shop and plan to make a return visit. Maybe next time we will take the feeding tour.
First of all, the cats. Just being in their presence is an emotionally moving experience. Then, great organization and helpful staff/volunteers. Thank you for all you do for these amazing and deserving creatures to help them have the best life possible.

The Big Cars are all awesome...gorgeous...the 90 min tour was so rushed...as though...the guide did not really care if you actually saw the Big Cat in each enclosure...and they would try to rush by...saying...cat not out now...but every time we would see the Big Cat and point...stopping the guide from rushing by...and then the not so friendly end of line guides would rush everyone...and or just say something rude or aimed at hurrying everyone on...but WE paid to see the Big Cats...and actually be able to watch them for a few more minutes each...seems that was consensus among our tour group....
The tour was very informative. Not only did we have an excellent opportunity to see loins, tigers, and other big cats in a very up close encounter, we also received a lot of educational and insightful information from our guide. It is just a shame that so many have come to Big Cat Rescue after suffering neglect and mistreatment. These are majestic creatures that are now receiving love, care and attention.

Knowledgeable staff, clean facility and a great mission.
Great tour and very interesting. Seems like you do a wonderful job to take care of the animals!
What an amazing experience I had when I visited "Big Cat Rescue" last week on (12/4)! It was my birthday, and I wanted to do something fun, and also give back to an organization that I felt strongly about. I certainly accomplished both on the day of my visit! My volunteer guide (Denny) was wonderful, and all of the volunteers that I encountered were friendly, helpful and very informative. I learned so much about the cats, and their stories really touched my heart! Thanks to everyone at "Big Cat Rescue" for ALL that you do for these beautiful animals, and for helping to make my birthday extra special! I'm looking forward to my next visit! Blessings, Colleen :) **I'm the proud "Mama Kitty" to Isaac (age 2 and 1/2) and Maggie (9 months)! :)
You can really tell these animals are happy! Would choose this place over any zoo! This place takes care of their animals and it shows. We’ll be back for sure!
Denny was an outstanding tour director and we learned so much about the cats, big and domesticated alike. The day was totally enjoyable and we left feeling so good about the excellent care these beautiful animals get.
This place was awesome!
The work that is being done to save these big cats is great. Also the education that was provided to help the cats is very helpful.
This was such an amazing experience. We did the 3pm tour and saw about half of the cats there. You won't ever see them all in one go as they like to hide but you will definitely enjoy it no matter what. I highly recommend going, plus all the money goes back into the foundation to help these big cats!
Very well organized. Well informed guide that cared about what she was doing. Keep up this important work.
It was a great time! Very clean and organized. Daniel was a great tour guide

Learned a ton about these beautiful creatures. Was an amazing tour.
Thank you guys for everything It was so lovely. I invited my family to it and they adored it Keep up fellows I look forward to come again
This was a great learning experience for both myself and my granddaughter. She was telling others about the abuse/neglect of the big cats. You do great work!
All aspects were excellent!!' Booking was a snap. Direction to facility were clear. Our guide was knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Most importantly was sharing their missing. My wife and I will be back.
Very educational, so much I didn't know about these beautiful animals. Thank you All for what you do to protect them.
Our guide was wonderful - he is very involved with the cats - their personalities, and their likes and dislikes. he was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the animals habitats and with how sleek and beautiful they all were. BCG is clearly doing a fantastic job with these animals and always putting the cats first. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Pat Gispert
I am so happy that the big cats have been rescued to a forever home with an incredible human family. Your dedication and care is inspiring.
It was a hot day but hearing the stories of each animal was very endearing and brought to life how mankind interferes with nature for profit. I will never think of a baby lion or tiger in the same way and will never pay money to people who have them for profits. I'm also very pleased that the lions can retire to this facility for care and rest.
