Try to get there when they first open. According to the guide, this is when the cats are most active. It also helps if the weather is sort of cool.

Outstanding visit as they have more big cats then any other one place I have been. The guided tour was fun and much better then just a zoo visit

The staff at Tiger Creek do great work! The big cats are just gorgeous and the new habitats are wonderful. If you go, try to pick a cool day. It was VERY hot when we went and the kids (mine are 7 & 9) get miserable pretty fast. We'll definitely visit again - great for kids and adults. Wear comfy walking shoes and cool clothing.

It's a wonderful sanctuary for these big cats. It's interesting to hear their stories of where they came from. One belonged to Michael Jackson and two were featured on HGTV. We got to see a white one in training.

From Our Editors

When the sun shines on the inky black coat of 8-Ball, an Asian leopard, you can see the intricate pattern of spots on his fur. What you may not notice are the scars on his neck, remnants of having been chained up in a pool hall by a former owner. When the owner could no longer keep him, 8-Ball was sent to a drive-thru safari park that was later shut down by the USDA. But all of that must seem like a faraway nightmare to 8-Ball, as he now enjoys the security, ample food, and medical care at Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge. He is among the more than 40 big cats that have been rescued and rehabilitated, trading lives of abuse, neglect, and misplacement for environs that executive director Brian Werner calls a "living resort."

The facility is owned and operated by Tiger Missing Link, a nonprofit organization that Werner chartered in 1995. After diligent research, Werner began creating a big-cat sanctuary on a 25-acre property that Werner owned. He and his family lived in a small cabin with no running water, heat, or air conditioning, clearing the land themselves and going door to door to garner support for the project. It certainly wasn't easy, but through the hard work of volunteers and some big-time press?including features on Animal Planet's 2007 Tiger Week and Good Morning America?the shelter's reputation and facilities continue to grow.

The refuge aims to raise visitors' awareness of the plight of large cats in the wild, and it plans to expand to add more natural habitats and observatories. Landscapers have even built a waterfall habitat where the tigers can exercise while trying not to puncture their plastic inner tubes. This feature may have been the favorite amenity for two of Michael Jackson's tigers that, according to a KLTV 7 story, have called the space home.
