I am a healthcare professional and have been working (volunteering) with the Cattyshack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary for about 11 years. I have worked with major zoos and other exotic animal groups but now concentrate my time primarily with Cattyshack. I chose this organization because of my personal knowledge of the Executive Directors dedication to the cause and my observation of the excellent care they give their animals. The cats are well fed, treated with nothing but love and respect, and it shows. Don't just take my word for it. Trip Advisor Jacksonville (5 star) has over 250 recent reviews from people who have actually visited there. Most of the reviews are 5 star and comment on the knowledge and dedication of the staff, how clean the facility is and how well cared for, healthy and happy the Cats appear. Recently, when unfortunate circumstances forced the closure of a private zoo in Wisconsin, the owner wanting the best for his animals, visited and interviewed several sanctuaries. He chose Cattyshack to place his 6 tiger cubs because he liked what he saw.
Like most nonprofit rescues Cattyshack relies solely on donations and volunteers. In that, they are enjoying widespread community support and a great group of dedicated, knowledgeable, hard working volunteers. I enjoy every minute and consider it a priviledge to be associated with the Cattyshack Ranch.

Ways to make it better...

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

Get a larger facility. While it is 10 acres, an increase in the number of animals coupled with a desire to give each animal as large an enclosure as possible, they are running out of physical space.

I've followed this compound for years. Check out their Fish and Wildlife inspection reports, and USDA reports. Some time ago, he was ordered to start feeding his starving animals or risk confiscation. Since a leopard never changes its spots, I'm sure the animals are still receiving the same, substandard care. I wouldn't give a penny to this group.
