Panther Ridge is an amazing facility who educates the public about endangered exotic cats! I highly recommend visiting for a one hour guided keeper tour where you can meet the cats up close and even hear some of them purr.

Panther Ridge Conservation Center is by and large the best facility of its kind I have had the pleasure to experience. Their conservation efforts, species survival plans, rescue efforts, and overall care of these beautiful and endangered cats are unparalleled. They go above and beyond and you can tell the staff share a respect level with the cats that is hard to find in captivity. If you are looking for a place to donate to that really means something wholesome and meaningful, do not look any further. I absolutely adore this place from the front of the house to the back!

Panther Ridge Conservation Center is a wonderful organization! My family and I visited a few months ago and everyone enjoyed the experience. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and taught us all about the different species of big cats they care for and shared some fun anecdotes, like how the Serval, Duma, gives people he likes Duma 'dos (or hairdos)! Visiting the Center was a great experience--my family and I are planning on arranging another visit so that we can attend the cheetah walk with the two new, young Cheetahs!

Everyone at Panther Ridge cares deeply about the cats and their health: Amos, an older leopard, has a cage full of enriching stimuli and shade so that he does not over-heat. My father's favorite cat, Toltec, the ocelot, due to his prior homes has nerve damage and muscle atrophy, but staff members worked to improve his muscle strength and even raised enough funds to give him surgery and help Toltec get some relief!

Panther Ridge is a special organization with residents full of personality! I highly recommend visiting the Center or volunteering.

Panther Ridge Big Cat Center is one of the most worthwhile centers in animal conservation I have ever encountered! Judy Bernes and her staff are beyond caring and protective of their cats, a great thing to see! Pre-Covid, I had a wonderful experience with a friend (Carol) enjoying one on one time with a few rambunctious baby cheetahs the time was magical. Donating to Panther Ridge is simple and you know the funds are going to a great cause! I'm donating now to help name their newest edition, a little Caracal :)))) Dr J Allenby

An amazing facility that truly gives the best care to every individual for the rest of their life. The cats are all loved and given everything they need from food, toys, enrichment, scents, etc. Not only is the care for the animals great, but the educational tours about each species as well as the conditions of the environments they are from is well done! Highly recommend!

Panther Ridge is an amazingly well run facility. The staff is smart, funny, compassionate, and completely dedicated to giving these cats the highest possible quality of life.
Every parent that wants to teach their kiddos how to properly preserve, respect, and care for our planet and it’s inhabitants should plan a trip to see Panther Ridge.
Even as an adult I was in awe of the beautiful symbiotic relationship between these majestic animals and the cats that they care for.

It is evident that is organization definitely "walks the walk" in terms of providing for its feline friends. The staff is also amazing.

This is an amazing rescue organization -
Cats are well cared for and are obviously thriving - having been rescued from the pet trade, from illegal circuses or “simply” abused by those who were previously supposed to care for them! Some endangered species and hopefully some new cubs to continue the species before our grandchildren can only read about them! Many more people should visit and learn about these magnificent animals! Well done Panther Ridge!!

My family visited Panther Ridge because our son has loved cheetahs and big cats for several years. This conservation center offered a tour with the head keeper, Sadie, that was exceptional! Her expertise in making sure we got to know each cats' story made this an inspirational and educational experience. It was abundantly clear that these cats are well cared for and loved! Judy, the owner, shared her time with us when we met Charlie, the ambassador cheetah. He was docile and seemed to enjoy seeing my son and his stuffed cheetah, Speedy. My son used his birthday money to adopt Charlie, and he hopes to adopt more of the big cats in the future! We were very grateful to have this experience and would highly recommend visiting Panther Ridge if you are in the South Florida area, and/or consider making a donation or adopting one of their amazing big cats! My son has asked us to frame his adoption certificate and beautiful photograph of Charlie to hang in his room. We will definitely do that very soon!

If I could give more than five stars, I certainly would. I highly recommend this facility to adults and children of all ages. The head keeper tour was intriguing and filled with a lot of great information about each cat. The facility is very well kept and the staff is very pleasant and personable. The cats obviously stole the show and this experience was like none other. You get an intimate experience and even have the option to meet some of the cats. I opted for the clouded leopard encounter and I would recommend it to anyone that asked. By far, one of the best things I've ever experienced and the photos that were taken for me were a huge plus. It was great to see how comfortable and happy the cats were and the love that Panther Ridge has for them. If you get the chance, book a tour and/or an encounter here. It will not disappoint! Thank you for all that you do Panther Ridge! I will be back sooner rather than later.

Absolutely wonderful experience visiting this facility. They obviously put in much time and effort to ensure that all their residents are happy, healthy and entertained. The staff is amazing and you can tell by talking with them how much they love the cats and being able to spend time with them - which is reciprocated by the cats to the staff. They want to make sure you learn about each one and from where they came and about how they live, both there and in the wild, which I think is a good thing as education is what can lead to change. I fully enjoyed my time out there and look very much forward to visiting again.

I have volunteered at Panther Ridge as an interspecies communicator. I have seen first hand the loving care these big cats are given. Their glossy coats and loving response to their care givers is proof that they are happy and well provided for. Judy Berens, owner, is dedicated to providing for them on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. She sees them as unique individuals who are deserving of being honored and well served. Their enclosures are immaculate, they have access to climbing, swimming, playing, etc. I consider myself fortunate to have experienced this unique facility.

I had the pleasure of touring Panther Ridge Conservation Center last week. The grounds are beautiful, and the two-acre enclosure that Charlie the Cheetah has to roam is particularly impressive. The tour was very up-close and informative about the history and unique characteristics of the nineteen exotic cats in Panther Ridge. My tour took place a few weeks after Hurricane Irma, and it was fascinating to learn about the extreme care and concern that the staff exercised to ensure the safety of all the cats throughout the hurricane. The owner, Judy, head-keeper, Sadie, and entire staff of Panther Ridge are obviously dedicated to these cats, and it was truly a great experience to tour such an excellent facility.

I had the chance to tour Panther Ridge recently and was beyond impressed. The grounds and enclosures were extremely well maintained. It was very clear that the keepers truly enjoy caring for each animal there. Jamie was highly knowledgable about each cat and the bond that she has with the animals was a wonderful thing to witness. I look forward to returning in the future and highly recommend anyone who is ever in the area to stop by for a tour.

My husband and I did a tour with Jamie. I have to say it was amazing to see all these cats up close and to see the zoo keeper interact with them. She was very knowledgeable about all the cats. You could tell immediately that it wasn't just a job to her. The facility was clean and the animals were very well taken care of. To watch how the cats responded to the staff told you they were all treated so well. I tell everyone about our trip here and recommend it for anyone who has a chance to visit. We will definitely go again the next time we are in Florida.

It was amazing to see how clean the enclosures are - everything put away and not one woodchip out of place. The team was knowledgeable about the cats - from their species classification to silly stories of how Meeka still enjoys sucking on thumbs!

Definitely a grand experience and would recommend visiting if in the area.

My husband and I recently went on an amazing tour of Panther Ridge Conservation Center in Wellington, Florida. The big cats were beautiful and so well cared for. The enclosures were meticulously kept. The staff was knowledgeable and had great respect for these animals. We learned a lot about the background of each cat and interesting facts about the various breeds. My husband and I debated which was our favorite big cat, Charlie the cheetah or Mateo the jaguar, but realized we were taken with all of them. Thanks to all at Panther Ridge for providing such a fascinating tour. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone!

I have visited Panther Ridge at least 15 times over the past 10 years and I must say that it's the most excellent wonderful place that I have EVER been to. It is immaculate! The cats are family and are treated like royalty. If you have the ability to donate ANY amount to Panther Ridge, your funds help to continue the care these animals deserve. Every dollar goes to feed and maintain this rescue. Vet bills are very expensive for these cats and they need all the help that you can give. Please donate today. Judy Behrens is one of the best people I know! She and her volunteers do a remarkable job!

I've been coming down to Lake Worth to visit family for over 10 years and had no idea Panther Ridge existed until May 2016 when I read an article in The Grapevine, a community magazine, highlighting the Culture Club's tour of Panther Ridge Conservation Center, a 501 C(3) Not For Profit organization.

I was so impressed by what I read about Panther Ridge that I sent Judy Berens an email requesting an appointment for the Director's tour as soon as possible explaining how I was leaving FL within the week.

Judy called me the next day to schedule my tour which I took the following day. Judy was very pleasant and willing to accommodate my time frame.

I read a lot about Panther Ridge before my tour as I've always been an animal lover with a long history of having had many, many cats over the years and I was interested in seeing and learning more about the exotic and endangered cats at Panther Ridge.

While driving to Panther Ridge I couldn't help but notice that Panther Ridge Conservation Center is in the heart of horse country in Wellington, FL. The beautiful ride to Panther Ridge was surpassed when I drove through the metal gate onto the magnificent grounds of Panther Ridge.

The $100 Director's tour gave me the history of Panther Ridge and an education about each of the resident exotic cats. It's amazing how much Judy knows about each cat, the level of her commitment to taking care of these cats for life and her determination to help save the endangered Cheetahs.

I was so impressed with Judy, her mission and Panther Ridge that I gave a donation in addition to paying for the Director's tour.

First of all I have to say that my Father was a zoo vet back in the 1960s, so I have been visiting zoos for decades wherever I can find them and I have a sense of when animals are well cared for and happy. I have never seen big cats so well-cared for as those at Panther Ridge.

To begin with, although close to several large towns,Panther Ridge is secluded enough that there is peace and quite for the animals. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the animals' enclosures are in great shape and very clean. Each has been built to to provide its inhabitants with opportunities for enrichment - sufficient space to move, explore, play - all done with largely natural materials - there are bushes to hide in, trees to climb, and for some a stream and pool to play in.

The first cat we met was "Charlie" the Cheetah - ok, so the name is a little hokey, but Charlie is a people cat. Stand by his multi-acre enclosure and he comes over to see the tourists and then he starts purring! He is just so happy to have visitors that he purrs and purrs and purrs and sits to be admired.

The care that these animals receive shows in their physical condition - they are sleek and their coats gleam. Amos,the black leopard is a magnificent animal whose coat almost glows! It's almost as if he is wearing a coat of black oil because he is so shiny.

In many zoos and sanctuaries the animals exhibit signs of boredom - rubbing or grooming themselves raw or pacing. Panther Ridge's cats show no sign of these negative or nervous behaviors - while they spend time resting, as do big cats in the wild, they are alert and visible. They seem to be almost as interested in the humans who come to see them as are the humans. They show no signs of being abused or of learned fear of humans. It seems clear that these animals are well-cared for and treated with the respect that they deserve.

The staff is very knowledgeable. Ask a them a question and you get a response that is appropriate to the level of interest. Ask a follow-up question and you get more information. The Executive Director, Judy Berens, is a walking encyclopedia of big cat information all delivered pleasantly.

This place is a jewel and anyone interested in observing the beauty of big cats or interested in helping these animals survive should visit.

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!

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.

My husband and myself have had the pleasure of visiting Panther Ridge Conservation Center a few times in the past. We know Judy, the Owner from our first visit years ago. We've attended their Annual Charity event, had a private tour and celebrated a friends 50th Bday with a delicious catered dinner on a beautiful night with Amos near by and just yesterday (April 30th) brought another set of friends to introduce Judy and all her exotic Cats. Can you tell we LOVE Judy and Panther Ridge??

Judy is the most passionate, caring, dedicated and extremely educated in every aspect of Big exotic cats. Every question that was asked, she answered with amazing insight and could continue talking about other exotic animals all over the world, has amazing Colleagues and working on ways to enhance and care for these magnificent animals around the world.

Thank God we have Judy on this Earth to rescue and care for these cats. They live on 10 magnificent acres that is extremely clean, the cats are given the best quality of meats, veggies, fruits, vitamins and seafood, they are cleaned and very groomed. You can see for yourselves how much these cats love Judy... on your tour you'll get to see these babies up close while Judy enters their enclosed habitats and interacts with them. She brings them special treats so you can hear them purr and talk to her while she gives you the history of that specific cat. Panther Ridge is truly amazing, I always look forward to bringing friends for private tours because its truly amazing every time and you learn so much every time!!

You do have to make a appointment, which ensures you the most attention and one on one time with Judy, her Staff and all her Beautiful Cats. I love them all, Thank you Judy!
Enjoy!!!

My partner and I visited Panther Ridge in March 2016, and were blown away by the place. We've visited alot of zoos and wildlife parks, and we've never seen animals this happy. Judy is a wonderful woman who has dedicated alot to the well-being of her animals and it shows. If you love big cats and are in the area, please pay them a visit and learn about these beautiful creatures and their home. It costs alot to run the center, and are constantly in need of donations, so if you can take the time to visit and help.

Great Place! The Location is amazing! The owner Judy is so nice this whole place is amazing! This is one of greatest places I have ever been. If you are a cat lover or an animal lover this is a great place for you. The animals there are so cute and pretty! A cheetah is my favortie animal and it was amazing and so exciting to see one in person. And I am so happy that other peolpe are trying to save these big cats and this is coming from a 7 year old girl. I think no animal should be extinct or endangered and I am glad that some people feel the same way.
