A Special Legacy – CFAR’s Brick Program

Memories are engraved in stone to show a level of commitment either to a person, place or object. At Central Florida Animal Reserve, there is no doubt you feel a connection – to the cats, the environment and the mission – to address the challenges big cats face in the future while providing value to society today.

Our brick program gives you the opportunity to have a permanent place in CFAR’s history. As our facility expands, we want to recognize those who have made a positive impact on the success of our mission. Consider placing a brick as a memorial, a tribute, or symbol of your commitment to future generations!


The 3 V’s Campaign

The life source of Central Florida Animal Reserve is undoubtedly the big cats we serve. The capacity to maintain the vision of their future requires the utilization of resources, ancillary services, equipment and additional care programs. We are in need of your support to help continue our commitment and conservation to the residents of Central Florida Animal Reserve.
