Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge | Entertainment & Arts
Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides a forever home for unwanted big cats. We currently have 39 cats in our care, including 26 tigers, 5 lions, 4 pumas, 2 leopards, and 2 bobcats. We were founded in 1995 by starting our parent company, Tiger Missing Link Foundation. Our first tiger, Sammy was rescued in 1997 and we officially opened to the public in 1999.
We are open Monday thru Saturday 10am-5pm. Our educated staff and interns give guided, walking tours through our facility. Each cat has their own story of how they came here to Tiger Creek. Any and all questions are welcome. The tour generally lasts 30-45 minutes. After the tour is over, our guests are welcome to hang out and enjoy the cats on their own. Many people develop a liking for a particular cat and enjoy going back to visit with them. Picture taking for private use is welcome. We also have a gift shop and outdoor picnic area. The refuge is available for school field trips and group outings.
We do ask for a minimum donation to see our cats and prices are as follows.
Seniors (65+) $9
Children (4-12) $8
Children (0-3) FREE!
Scheduled School Groups $6/person (this also includes scout groups, nursing homes, church groups, etc…)
