  • Amazing experience. We went during the feeding time. Cost about $50 a ticket. The tour was an hour and a half it was two adults and we had a 10-year-old with us. The group size was about 10 people or less. They have a cheaper option anymore expensive option you’ll just have to look on their website. All of the cost goes straight back into the center. The volunteers were very knowledgeable about all the cat. They have 57 big cats living there. The most amazing ones where the Tigers they got to them to growl and snarl really loud. So cool. They have a no picture policy of the cats while at the center. They have a small but cute gift shop where you can buy a flash drive of all the cats. It has some amazing photos of the cats. The reason they don’t allow photos is because the flash drive helps raise money for the center and goes back into the feeding and care for the cats. All the staff are volunteers and they’re very passionate about their work. One of the volunteers during our tour drives all the way from Seattle just for the experience. Most all the animals at this advocacy center were either formally owned by private individuals. The 2 Tigers were used as photo ops where people could get their picture taken with them but law states they have to be 3 months old or younger. The google directions could have been a bit better. There were signs for most of the drive but the road to turn off into the center was not clear. There was no signage indicating we were turning into the right driveway . There was an open gate.
  • The tour was awesome. The cats were easily visible and up close. You are glad there is a fence because a couple of the cats were very intensely watching our every move. Our tour guide was great.
