The Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Education Center is a valuable and inspiring animal resource dedicated to the rescue of adorable big cats, and they offer self-guided and guided tours to allow YOU to be a part of it!
The self-guided tour is a great way for you to just visit the center, and enjoy it in your own time. You can visit the animals that call it home, including tigers, leopards and of course lions. Kids can learn all about these beautiful creatures, and you can spend as little or as long as you like there.
For those families who want something more in depth, the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue Center offer speciality tours that you can enjoy if you pre-book.
These include 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.
What's also great about your visit to the Big Cat Rescue Center, is that your donation makes a ROARING difference, with your admission going directly towards the upkeep and care of these stunning creatures.
So why not enjoy a family day out that also makes a difference at the same time. It's a WILD time in Wisconsin, and the big cats are ready!
Self Guided: Min donation $9 / Speciality Tours: $25 (Must call ahead)
(Ages 4-12) Self Guided: Min donation $6 / Speciality Tours: $15 (Must call ahead)
Take your camera!
For all tours (except Morning Feeding Tour), participants are welcome to walk the tour or drive thru the tour with their own vehicle.
It's an amazing learning experience for kids, so why not take the students on a trip to the center to learn about conservation and wildlife?
Just give them a call to discuss the accessibility of the center, they will be happy to help!
