Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary

Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. “Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their plight in the wild and captivity”. Our primary focus is in the rescue of cats from serious situations. Once an animal is taken in at Catty Shack Ranch, they have a loving, forever home for life. We do not breed, sell, or trade any of our animals. Our current residents include tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, bobcats, arctic foxes, and coatimundis (the last two are “honorary cats”).  

Daytime Tours: Admission for these tour dates is $10/adults, $5/children (3-11). Children 2 & under are free. These tours are a great way to see our cats relaxing and enjoying the sun. Depending on their mood, you may see them luxuriating in their pools, playing with their toys, or just sleeping (with their bellies in the air!)

Night Feeding Tours: Admission for feedings is $15/adults, $10/children (3-11). Children 2 & under are free. Our cats wake up after dark – so during these tours, be prepared to hear them roar, play with each other (and their toys), and sometimes even show off their teeth! There are no age limitations to these tours (or any tour).
