The National Tiger Sanctuary rescue organization is licensed by the USDA Missouri Department of Agriculture and the Missouri Department of Conservation. It is a non-profit organization and was founded in 2000. Some of the big cats that live here were attempted to be made into domestic animals. Many of the exotic animals cannot be returned to the wild. The animal care guidelines are thorough and the center does its best to provide appropriate environments and simulate their natural habitat for big cats such as mountain lions, lions, orange tigers, leopards, and other exotic wildlife. This place is so much more than a zoo. It is a place where rescued animals get the care that they need from animal lovers who wish to create a unique educational experience for visitors and help to educate them. Each animal is loved, cared for, and healthy. This facility is well worth the visit and even accepts donations for its efforts.
