Reviews for Big Cats Of Serenity Springs Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I love going here. Have been three times this year and it is only August. Photo and playtime with Bear and Tiger cubs is amazing and an experience to remember!! The tour guides also make it entertaining by telling stories about the animals and playing games with one of the big cats. I am so glad that these animals have a great forever home!!!!

This place is so amazing! This is the closest thing to being in the wild with these beautiful animals you can get! All along the tour your learning things about not only these individual animals but facts about the species! The people who run this place are just amazing individuals! All volunteers and wow! I just can't tell you how great this place is. Please stop in and support these beautiful animals and have a great time!!

What an exceptional facility! The place is so well kept... not even any of the funky animal smells you usually encounter where wild animals are kept. Tour guides were very informative, providing history of each animal on the tour. Great way to spend a few hours, and help support these beautiful animals. Lion, tigers, ligers, bears and more! Don't miss out... and the tour price is so reasonable (only $10/person). TWO THUMBS UP!

Been to Serenity Springs a couple of times now, with different friends and family. Once during their family fun day and the other time on a regular weekend. (I highly recommend fun day - the burgers were awesome).

The tour was great, our guide did a wonderful job telling us about different cats and some of their behaviors. I did note that they had a LOT of tour guides (someone complained earlier in a review about the tour guide - musta not been the one I had). It was a great time... Took a lil less than an hour. The bears and Lemurs were very cool. And Willy the tiger sprayed some kid (that made my tour the best). Hey, the kid was warned and everyone else backed up...LOL Oh, somoene mentioned no photos on another review. Everyone in my tour group had their phones out and was snapping pictures left and right.

Regardless, both time I have been, have been a blast!!! The cats are great, the staff was nice, then again, I was nice to them. And it was a fun way to spend time with friends and family. I highly recommend it... And yep, I will be goin back soon!

Oh, did the play time and that was amazing! Some great selfies with a tiger cub.

Serenity Springs is all about the animals !!! They make sure their animals know love. What is more important than that ? The owner Nick and ALL the staff genuinely care about each and every one of the animals that reside there and beyond.......................

We visited Serenity Springs with a lot of anticipation and were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, the animals healthy and happy, and the amount of care and attention to detail to keep the animals safe, secure, and happy was wonderful. I hope to visit many times to come. They definitely deserve consideration for any spare change someone may have because it all goes to such a great and heart-felt cause. Well done guys!

I love big cats and I love that Serenity Springs never turns away a big cat in need of rescue. They do a wonderful job with what they have and deserve more funding and support than they get. Love this place!! Well worth a visit, and all the money from tours goes directly to the animals.

What an amazing facility! It is very clear that everyone there has the best interest of the animals in their hearts. From the founder to the volunteers you can tell how much they care and how much the animals feel their love! There are strict rules you have to follow while visiting but this keeps the animals and the public safe as you are allowed to get closer to the animals!

I have been volunteering at this facility for 6 years. This is one amazing facility. These animals are very well cared for and loved, you can absolutely tell when you go on a tour. I do not know how many people have mentioned how relaxed all the animals seem and how healthy they look although they have come to the facility in horrible conditions. See for yourself what an amazing facility this is before believing any negative comments or reviews by others. The staff and volunteers work very hard to provide these animals with a loving forever home.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds to help provide for more animals! I wish we could provide more advertising to get the word out about this amazing place!

What an amazing place! I started volunteering 5 years ago and wow, what a lot we have accomplished over the years! As soon as you step on the grounds you realize how the name really fits, Serenity Springs. The animals are all very well cared for and you can see the way they interact with the staff that they are truly happy to have been placed there to live out their lives. The staff works extremely hard to provide any exotic animal a home on a very tight budget. Amazing Place you must take time to visit.
