Saturday, April 19 - Night Feeding Tours
Hours of Operation: Gates open at 6:00 PM. Tours from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Last admittance at 7:15 PM. Feeding begins at 7:30 PM.
Cost: Adults: $15; Children (3-11): $10; 2 & Under: Free
No reservations required. Enjoy a guided tour of all the residents (Siberian tigers, lions, cougars, black leopards, bobcats, coatimundis and foxes) at our sanctuary! Tours begin at 6:00 PM and leave approximately every 15 minutes. Tours last about 45 minutes and include a viewing of all our residents, as time allows, along with facts about the animals. To see the feeding, we suggest everyone arrive at the ranch by 7:15 PM to allow for adequate time for check-in and walking to the feeding point. At 7:30 PM, you will get to watch over 450 pounds of meat distributed throughout the sanctuary! Get ready to see their "wild" side - there's sure to be plenty of roaring!
Want to help our enrichment team? Bring a watermelon donation for use by our enrichment team during the month of April! Our animals love to play with and destroy the melons and your donation would be much appreciated!
Purchase Tickets: Tickets may be purchased at the event (cash, check, Visa, Mastercard & Discover are accepted forms of payment).
Catty Shack Ranch is the #1 Jacksonville Attraction on TripAdvisor!
Come see why we're the #1 attraction in Jacksonville! As many of our reviewers point out, we aren't a typical attraction. We focus on rescuing and rehoming animals, mainly large, endangered cats, from various situations. When you come to the ranch, you'll get a safe, close-up look of our residents - some of which weigh upwards of 600 pounds! A tour guide will teach you about these animals, including their plight in the wild and in captivity. All the workers you see at the ranch are volunteers, so the proceeds of your event tickets go directly to taking care of our animals!
Don't forget to bring your camera! You'll get plenty of beautiful pictures of our residents, especially during the night feedings!
