Does this appear to be the activity of a Not for Profit SANCTUARY or that of a COMMERCIAL OPERATION?!?

I guess anyone can tack that ‘rescue’ word and/or stake a claim to “sanctuary” and just about  anyone will believe it…The state of Florida says THIS FACILITY IS NOT A SANCTUATY!!! BCR IS NOT A SANCTUARY,  NOR HAS IT EVER BEEN A REAL RESCUE!!!.

SIXTY-FIVE DOLLARS to see the cats at BCR…-OMG!!! What a rip-off!!! I guess it must be time once again to make that pay-off to Wayne Pacelle CEO~HSUS…$100,000.00 -Maybe that GFAS connect to it just isn’t paying off as expected?!?

Lowery Park Zoo has more to offer but it doesn’t cost 65 bucks!!! My goodness does Baskin honestly think she can compete with Lowry Park Zoo or Busch Gardens?!? Never happen -ROTFLOL!!! “They never close” -WTF?!? $10.00 if you can’t walk -I take issue with that…The disable pay extra-WTF?!? “ONLY for those with a medical need.” You just can’t make this stuff up…I didn’t know cats are spooked by umbrellas…Never noticed that before anywhere I have been…seems to me they barely noticed…Her place-Her rules, I suppose, even so, what would it matter…after all, you can disturb the cats night or day!!! You pay for a $65.00 after dark tour and can slip in the mud…At hose prices, Can’t Carole Lewis/Baskin afford concrete?!? Something tells me, this isn’t going to BCR just isn’t going be so great!!! -Count me out!!! For the same or a few dollars more I’d rather go to Busch Gardens!!! For that matter, I can spend the day, at my own leisure, on concrete paths…using my umbrella at Lowry Park Zoo…Tampa, Florida, my kind of town with so many choices…One and a half hours at a muddy place in the rain without an umbrella or…I spend the day learning about animals and having a great time-What would you prefer!!!

That’s some SANCTUARY!!! The BULLSHIT  is TRANSPARENT!!! SCAM-tuary!!!


Night Tours after dark $65.00 Must be over 10 yrs old and in good health
Children’s Camp $265.00 wk

Get your tickets

For those who cannot walk an hour and a half we offer limited space on our golf carts for $10. more per person. This is on a first come, first served basis and is ONLY for those with a medical need.

We are located at 12802 Easy Street Tampa, FL 33625

We are a sanctuary, not a zoo, so our animals come first. We do not allow people to wander around unescorted. Our tours are all guided and provide an educational experience that includes the plight of big cats in the wild and in captivity and what you can do to save them.  You will be expected to follow these THESE RULES.

While you are in Tampabay visit some of these hotels, beach resorts, restaurants and places to play golf.

In Florida, weather is always an issue. In the summer it rains frequently, but often only for a few minutes. If you have paid for a tour and get rained out during your tour, we will give you a free pass to come back. Because the cats are spooked by umbrellas, they are not allowed but you should bring a rain coat or poncho if it looks like rain. Tours will be canceled during lightening storms. Paths are frequently muddy so closed toed, old, comfortable shoes are recommended.

You may bring your own cold drinks or buy ours but either way, be prepared for the heat.

You are welcome to take photos and video on the tour, but leave the tripods at home, or purchase a private tour. We ask everyone on the tour to stay together, no smoking, no cell phone calls and respect the tour guides warnings so that you have the best possible experience.

If you are traveling with pets, you cannot bring them onto the property. Florida law (and common sense) prohibit you from leaving them in your car, even with the A/C running.


BCR…I hate deception-It is not a sanctuary and this is COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY!!! SCAM-tuary…

  1. Grrrrrr…..well surely they can not make a profit by charging only $65 for a childs admission and only $265 for a tour at night? (insert sarcasm). Kinda like a shelter selling dogs they have stolen under the guise of deplorable conditions and in such horrid conditions they could only get $3000.00 for them in New Jersey! (AND YES THAT IS FOR ONE)…. Oh to be such a despicable breed of human and ALL NON-PROFIT! (NOT!!!). Go Top Cat
