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.

Serenity Springs provides refuge for throw-away big cats. The staff provide shelter food and medical care; the volunteers provide enrichment and for $10 per person, the public can get an experience of a life-time. Great place.

As soon as someone told me about Serenity Springs, I knew I had to go check it out. As soon as I visited, I knew I wanted to get involved with helping out. I've only been volunteering for a short while now but it is my favorite place to be on the weekend. The people and the animals there are all awesome and its such a good feeling to see so many happy and healthy cats there that can call it their forever home. :)

My boyfriend arranged for us to do a photography tour for my 30th birthday last year and I couldn't stop smiling the moment we walked in the facility. It's incredible to see such beautiful, majestic animals being cared for in such a loving and responsible manner. As soon as our tour ended I immediately decided I wanted to become a volunteer to help in any way I could. If you love animals, then you should do yourself a favor and visit Serenity Springs. It truly is an amazing place.

I'm one of the tour guides for Serenity Springs and have been volunteering there for 3(+) years. Introducing visitors to our big cats is a great joy and one that I never tire of. If you've never visited Serenity Springs, you should definitely put it on your list of things to do. Spending time with our beautiful cats, you will see how well cared for and how well loved they are...and you will come away having experienced a bit of magic!

Serenity Springs is an amazing place. You can tell that the animals are very happy there by the way that they interact with the staff, volunteers and the public. I wish I could spend more time there.
