"When it comes to big cats, it's about vision."

About Central Florida Animal Reserve

 

 

The Central Florida Animal Reserve (CFAR) is a big cat and wildlife sanctuary housing lions, tigers, leopards, and cougars. We are building a platform to address the challenges of big cats in the future, and provide value to society today. We engage the world of the big cats through our mottos:

COMPASSION.  CONSERVATION.  COMMITMENT.

This non-profit facility serves big cats that would otherwise not have a home. We are on a mission to preserve these magnificent animals and to act as stewards for their care and well being. At CFAR, when it comes to big cats, it’s about vision.

Where do these animals come from?
Some of our animals come from pet situations, some were rescues, and others from governmental agencies.  No cats at the facility were wild-born.
Why does CFAR exist?
While the actual numbers are debated, the big cat population in the United States is comparable to that of the wild.  This is especially true of tigers.  The organization exists to provide big cats a home to live out their lives surrounded by individuals dedicated to their needs.  The relationships developed through this care are used to educate the public and bring attention to the issues surrounding big cats.
What do you do with these cats?
Daily care is the largest component of our activities.  That includes feeding, watering, facility maintenance, and enrichment activities.
Is it true that you moved all the cats to Osceola County?
Yes!  Our facility is located close off 441.
