See Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary, where rescued wild cats are cared for. Animals seized due to illegal or poor ownership are permanent residents of this sanctuary. You can interact with volunteers and meet about 40 animals, among which are tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, bobcats, arctic foxes, and coatimundis. Take a guided tour, usually scheduled in the afternoon and evening and find out about the species currently at the sanctuary, their habitats, activities, and life stories. Because this is a volunteer operation, tour times and hours can vary, so double-check the website before going.
