Established in early 2000 as a non-profit animal sanctuary, Northeast Florida’s oldest wildlife rescue began by saving and reintegrating large exotic cats that were originally kept as pets. Today, the sanctuary houses a slew of felines including Siberian tigers, lions, cougars, black leopards and bobcats, as well as coatimundis and arctic foxes. Most come from zoos that have shuttered, federal confiscation programs or private owners who can no longer care for the animals. Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary holds frequent events, tours, feedings and public school educational programs about these rescued animals as well. Tours of the facility are run in the afternoons and last approximately 45 minutes.

When a former law-enforcement officer and a former Navy serviceman formed Second Amendment Outfitters in 2009, they aimed to cover all the bases their customers needed, including a firearms training center, retail store, and indoor shooting range in the plans. Once inside the climate-controlled shooting range, targets hanging from automated carriers challenge pistol- and rifle-brandishers to test their shots at six 23-yard-deep shooting lanes. Expert instructors assist inexperienced gunners in mastering pistol and rifle fundamentals during classes, and advanced trigger fingers can acquire name-brand firearms from the facility’s onsite or online shop. Should firearms require repairs or a new Bang! flag, a local gunsmith stops by twice a week to make adjustments and augmentations.

After studying music performance and opera at the North Carolina School of the Arts, Tiffani James decided she wanted another degree. She loved to teach, and was soon awarded a degree in education from University of Phoenix. At Arigner Vocal Studio, she combines her two passions, teaching students aged 4 and older everything from singing fundamentals to hitting high notes and controlling vibratos. Tiffani draws upon her more than 20 years of performance experience—during which she’s serenaded crowds at contests and opened for nationally renowned gospel singers—at each personalized lesson.

Liberty Tax Service's armada of certified public accountants swoops in to rescue taxpayers from the onslaught of numbers, paperwork, and quadratic equations that overwhelms during tax season. Beyond computerized tax preparation and electronic filing during the months preceding April 15, clients can count on the company's expertise during an audit, through a correspondence with the IRS or state agencies, or while finding the best games living inside their graphic calculators. Liberty Tax Service also benefits community members outside of the office by sponsoring Relay for Life, a race benefitting the American Cancer Society, and by collecting unwanted cell phones and sending them to soldiers overseas.
