Many beautiful tigers call this place home and you can meet them all. Two Ligers are found here, Mia and Brutus, along with eight lions, Lemurs and so many other animals.

Whether you want to visit with a group or enjoy the animals with your family, this is an si-highlight--primary part of Sarasota. The Big Cat Habitat has been rescuing cats for many years and gives them a permanent home. The facility includes three large indoor/outdoor complexes with exercise habitats. Swimming pools, toys and palm trees are provided in each complex to help with the emotional and physical health of the animals.

Watch Training

Another great part of the experience is actually watching the trainers work with the animals. Of course, the animals don't train in the summer due to the hot temperatures, but when they do, you can attend these training sessions and enjoy a great show.

The Sanctuary accepts donations for specific animals, breeds or for specific needs. If you'd like to help save these beautiful animals, you can donate online or as you tour the facility.
