  • If you wanted to get a private tour experience and learn in great detail not only about people that started this advocacy for felines born in captivity but also learn about each of their 50 or so big cats, then the Wild Felid Advocacy Center will suit you well! Louise was our guide and not only was very warm and courteous she was very accepting of our 5 year old twins on their birthday and in near the most rainiest days I’ve ever encountered in my many years of living in WA. Their wasn’t one disappointment to name, not every cat wants to be seen, but because they have 50 or so large cats in mostly their own beautifully crafted enclosure you feel like you see most of them rather easily and over half came right up to the fence to greet us and then walk around and show us their space and how they like to hide. 100% will tell all my friends and family and continue to support this awesome place as long as they welcome guests. Book online it’s worth it! Thanks again Louise
  • My youngest is 10 and she loves cats. All 5 of us had a blast, especially her. Be forewarned, any parents taking there children there, needs to know that their children Will Not go past the wooden fence line that is there. Only the staff. Do Not attempt to go past the wooden fence line and put your fingers through. Even the volunteer by the name of Andi only uses a feather to get near the cats. A couple of them were Very Fiesty, even with her. It was around the time they get fed when we were on our tour. It was worth the trip!! It feels like a Personal Wild Cat Refuge Tour. It wasn't crowded like it is at the zoo. Also noted, Do Not Take Photos. You may purchase a Photo CD at the end of the tour in there gift shop.
