Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue Rock Springs
Where are we going today?
The Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Education Center is a valulable and inspiring animal resource dedicated to rescuing the creatures and re-educating the public about their needs.
You can explore the facility and observe the guests on a self guided tour, which is best with young kids who just want to look and move on.
For a more intensive visit you can pre book from a selection of led tours: Morning Feeding, which takes 1 to 2 hours; the Founders Tour (visiting their oldest residents and learning their stories) which is 45 minutes to an hour.
The last is the best if the kids can stay up: the Night Tour takes in an hour's worth of a much more active scene: the big cats are all awake and on the move, vastly different to day time observation.
How much does it cost?
- AdultsSelf Guided $9, other $25
- ChildrenSelf Guided $6, other $15
- Free Under: 3 years.
When can we go?
Every day during summer season 10am to 5pm. Seasonal variations apply around that.

WOW! The Wisconsin big cat rescue is amazing. All of the cats were out and walking around. We got there around 3:00pm. We were able to buy a frozen chicken to feed to one of the cats and also a box for them to play with. The staff was very nice and took the time to educate us on why the cats were brought there. We were able to get SO close to them. this was by far the best thing we did on our wisconsin dells trip. we stayed for 2 hours. BEAUTIFUL! GREAT JOB TO THE WISCONSIN BIG CAT RESCUE AND ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HELP THEM!

I have been to WI Big Cat Rescue several times. It is so amazing to see the cats. They are well taken care of and are respected. Truly a treasure! It is worth finding.

Very nice place to see Big Cats up close. Great for taking pictures.The women was very helpful and was very informative. The animals look very healthy and there were not any unpleasant smells on a hot day.

This weekend I visited the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue near Wisconsin Dells. It was one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life.
The big cats I'd previously seen in zoos always seemed anxious or depressed, but the 29 cats I saw on Saturday were relaxed, playful and even affectionate with their handlers.
If you're ever in the Wisconsin Dells area (Rock Springs), you can have an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life.
