Directions

They are located in Dekalb County, just South of Collinsville. It might not be best to use Mapquest, as there is some problem with their address on that system.

If you are coming north on I-59, take exit 188 and turn left towards Blinking light. Here you are 12 miles away and so just follow the signs to the door.

If you are traveling from I-59 southbound from Ft. Payne, take exit 205 Collinsville and go west, then make a left onto 51 S, then make a right at Country Road 345 and the preserve will be on the right hand side of the road.

Where are we going today?

For those animal lovers, you will know there is nothing more rewarding than seeing rescued animals finally loved and care for.  Tigers for Tomorrow is a facility that cares for these exotic animals and gives them a safe and happy home to live out the rest of their days.

The open Walk About is where you can walk around and enjoy the animals at your own pace. You can stop and say hi to Zack and Tooties.  No, they are not the friendly staff - they are the resident camel and zebra! Happily enjoying their day waiting for visitors to come and say hi to them!

After those cute guys, you will find yourself at the Children's Barnyard Contact Area.  This is great for the kids because it's the only place in the park where they can have actual contact with the animals!  Spend some time with the goats, sheep, llamas, and emus - interacting with them, even making friends with them!

After that you will enter the Carnivore Compound!  Here you have 10 acres which over 35 big cats call home, as well as some Timber Wolves!  Lions, tigers, cougars and leopards will be right before your very eyes!

There is no need to make a reservation for this walking tour - just turn up and enjoy!

They do offer guided private tours, as well as school field trips which you will need to book ahead for, and you can even book sunset tours which is perfect if you want to see the animals a little more active! 

Because running and loud noises scare the animals, the preserve is not really suitable for toddlers, and best to just mention to the kids before you go that to keep the animals happy they should try and be on their best behaviour.  Then the animals will be excited and happy to see them!

Teachers corner

During the school field trips, they cover grade-specific learning objectives in life science and agriscience, and provide follow-up materials for your teachers. A great way to learn about the animals, their stories and why looking after them for our future is so important. .

Any Top Tips?

Best to wear closed-toe shoes, sneakers, or hiking boots (not sandals or flip flops). There will be lots of walking and a lot of the terrain is hilly. Bring sunscreen and water to protect you from the sun and heat. Although there are a few shaded areas you will be out in the sun a lot of the time. .

Need a little extra help?

They are working on getting paved roads to allow for disabled access. .

More information

When it's hot, the cats tend to nap a lot, so be mindful when you come that on a hot day they might be sleeping. .

    For the folks that rated negatively perhaps you could find it in your heart to bring forth a sizeable donation for a larger "cage" as you call it?These folks take in critters that otherwise would be mutilated,abused or destroyed and you stake a claim that a 40x40 "cage" isnt large enough?(or larger)Pleeze!As for me and my family,we had a great time!God bless you and keep on keeping on!

    Tigers for Tomorrow is a special place. As a couple folks have commented before, the animals are in smaller enclosures than a habitat. However, they are not "cages" either and Tigers for Tomorrow is a happy place. It is not a zoo - it is a last stop sanctuary for animals who need a positive option (many would otherwise be destroyed). They receive constant enrichment (toys/obstacles, changes to their enclosures, time outside the enclosures and attention from their keepers). Their enclosures are kept impeccably clean and all the animals are on specialized,...Read More

Tigers for Tomorrow is a special place. As a couple folks have commented before, the animals are in smaller enclosures than a habitat. However, they are not "cages" either and Tigers for Tomorrow is a happy place. It is not a zoo - it is a last stop sanctuary for animals who need a positive option (many would otherwise be destroyed). They receive constant enrichment (toys/obstacles, changes to their enclosures, time outside the enclosures and attention from their keepers). Their enclosures are kept impeccably clean and all the animals are on specialized, meticulously maintained diets. All of the animals come from some sort of human ownership/captivity and many have never known a happier place than Tigers for Tomorrow. If you plan to visit, please understand the difference between a zoo and a sanctuary. And ask questions if you don't understand what you're seeing! Lots of great employees and volunteers are happy to answer thoughtful questions.
