Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary reviews
This place is an amazing opportunity to see big cats up close. They rescue the animals from places that cannot take care of them. The money spent here goes to taking care of the animals. more »
Actually enjoyed this more than the zoo. Wish there was more to see but glad there is not as these are rescued animals. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. more »
Drove up from Orlando to spend some time with the big and little cats. Fairly easy to get to and was smart to buy online tickets ahead. Even though they were busy it never felt overcrowded. Workers seem to take really good care of the animals there and it was a wonderful experience to see so many tigers in one place. Would go back again if ever in the area and highly recommend visiting if anywhere near Jacksonville
Great place to go and see wild cats. Curt and his volunteer crew were awesome. Great time to have for all ages. This is a very up close and personal look at some very big cats. Don't miss this opportunity.
