the center does an excellent job explaining what kind of cats they have and where they come from. I have been several times and never tire of going usually once a year in the spring.

This is an out of the way, unpretentious and very needed rescue. I was in awe of the cats and their stories. Completely worth the drive from Indy for the hour tour.

I thought it might be sad to see these beautiful cats in this type of enclosure, but it was awesome! To hear the stories of where the cats came from, there is no doubt that they are all a million times better off with this caring staff! Beautiful animals!

We had a great time at the rescue center. Our guide did a great job explaining about each cat and their history. Our tour took a little over an hour. You are very close to most of the animals. The animals are beautiful. I will return to the center again one day.

Drove right here from the airport in Indy, about 2 hours or so. It's an outdoor rescue so remember to bring boots because it can get muddy. Cats are awesome and you can get fairly close to them as they are free to range the pens you walk by. Just don't try to pet!! Would highly recommend to anyone in... More

Went out to see some cat and experienced so much more. As we walked and listened to the stories behind each of the cat we saw. Big and small, cat of all sizes. It was really nice to meet the people who all cared about them. Everyone should stop in and see what it's all about. Plus the money they... More

This rescue center is well worth the visit. These creatures are well cared for by a passionate staff. I highly recommend this to anyone able to go. It will also enlighten you to how insane some of our laws regarding exotic animals are. Take the time - it is worth it.

My husband & I decided to visit on a Friday afternoon. We'd been there before but not for a couple years. We paid $10 each and joined a tour of about 10 people (adults & children). Our guide was very knowledgeable & told us each cat's story -- they're all sad being tales of abuse from individuals and circuses. The... More

We visited with our family and really enjoyed this tour. It was about an hour and it was really cool to hear where the cats came from and how they were doing now. Kind of seemed like a retirement village for senior cats ;) there were a few younger but each one neat in their own way. One wheelchair in... More

For a small fee, you get to see beautiful big cats- up close! The rescue does an amazing job of housing these magnificent creatures with the resources they have available. The tours are highly informative and interesting. Visiting the rescue is a great way to contribute to the care of the cats and to have a wonderful day.
