Absolutely breathtaking rescue of exotic big cats! My family enjoyed watched each of the cats be fed on the tour. Thank God for Judy who finds a large place in her heart for these beautiful creatures. The facility is spotless and the animals extremely well cared for. Jamie, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and sweet. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend it!
This is a great place be sure to visit on your next trip to Florida! You can tell the animals at this facility are well-cared for and loved. The two staff members that gave us the tour were very informative and you could tell they cared very much for all the cats. The cats are given plenty of room to roam in their spaces. It is really a unique experience to be able to get so close to these beautiful animals. You are much closer than you would ever get at a regular zoo. Not to be missed!
(A tip- you will pull up to a gate where you will see a house and you will need to call/text to get the passcode to enter ..but you are in the right place)
Beautiful facility with lots of landscaping & shade, super clean, with happy cats, each with a well suited enclosure that includes toys, fans, and sometimes a roommate!
Would recommend a tour!
My husband & I toured it today & learned a lot about members of the large cat family. Very educational for all ages!
Amazing private tour! Sadie our tour guide was so knowledgeable and went the extra mile to give us information. All of the cats were well taken care of and it was amazing to see them up close and watch them play. Amazing experience!!
My Wife's fascination with big cats lead us to a tour of Panther Ridge on a recent visit to Florida. I was personally blown away by this place and the staff. This isn't just a place for this incredible animals to exists, it's a staff and environment that I think would well exceed anyones expectations of care and love for this cats. The cats live better than I do. The grounds are immaculate. The cats are not only incredible to see up close but the depth of knowledge and caring from Judy and her staff including interns Alexis and Sadie was impressive. I HIGHLY recommend you visit this place if your in South Florida.
Panther ridge is an amazing facility dedicated to the conservation of big cats. It is a safe haven for animals in need and is a must see for those in the area! The bond Judy and her staff members have with these animals is amazing, and you can truly feel the love these animals receive when you are there. Housing some very endangered species, this is a wonderful facility helping these animals in need. Would highly recommend a visit!
Panther Ridge Conservation Center is a haven for some of the most endangered cats on the planet. The animals live in species appropriate enclosures with trees and water features. More importantly, they are lovingly cared for by a dedicated staff that attends to their every need. The education programs connect people with wildlife and encourage everyone to develop a lifelong interest in conservation efforts to save the our precious wild treasures.
In my opinion, a visit to Panther Ridge Conservation Center is a must, whether you are just visiting beautiful south Florida or if you're a local resident. The facility is home to several amazing exotic cats, all of which receive the utmost love, and attention. Owner and operator Judy Berens has spared no expense in the housing and care of these animals, ensuring a quality of life second to none. The staff at Panther Ridge are extremely caring and knowledgeable, and are always ready to answer any questions you may have as well. Sure, Florida boasts a number of theme parks, beaches, and vacation destinations, but none of which compare to the experience that an educational and informative personal tour of Panther Ridge provides.
