Hey everyone, great news, we're doing a tour of Big Cat Rescue! This is a place where over 100 big cats, ranging from lions to tigers to lynxes to ocelots, bobcats, sand cats, panthers, binturongs and others have been rescued to live a better life for the rest of their lives. They've been rescued from people trying them as house pets, from circuses, roadshows, fur farms, failed sanctuaries and other places where many have been in small cages and treated badly. Here they get life enrichments, many that you can see on Youtube, a natural setting, a rotating vacation area and medical care when needed. Big Cat Rescue also helps injured wild cats, nursing them back to health, to be released back into the wild. It's a great place to get close to the cats (approximately as close as 3 feet from many of them) and get some wonderful photographs. Our guides will tell about their past and how you can help others from having to live in a sanctuary. That's right, their main wish is to actually go out of business. But in the mean time, you can come visit these beautiful creatures and find out how they would normally live there lives. As special guests, we are going to get in at half price (Normally $36). Don't worry about finding someone to go with you, we'll match everybody up with my other invited groups to get this special two for one discount. The tour actually starts at 10:00, but we need everyone there at 9:30 to get signed in and paid up. You can bring your own beverage or purchase some there and bring some good old closed toed shoes as the paths are dirt and can even be muddy. Be sure to RSVP so I can get a good count by Friday 9:00 A.M. to let them know how many guides need to be lined up. They now have headsets so everyone can hear the guide clearly, but they do need to put a number to the guests with a guide as safety for guests as well as animals is their number one concern! Come join the wild side and see these guys with us. You'll see all the personalities that each of these cats have.
