Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary and Lodging

Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary is a Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) Verified 501(c)3 non profit big cat rescue and educational facility that provides permanent lifelong care for abused, neglected or unwanted big cats. As a true sanctuary, we do not buy, sell, breed or trade any of our animals; we believe they deserve to live the rest of their lives in a healthy and caring environment. It is our goal to provide our animals with exceptional physical and mental care as well as educating the public about the growing captive wildlife crisis. We work to “Give Animals A Voice” by speaking up for animals, since they cannot speak for themselves. This is achieved through on and off-site presentations, tours, and education groups all to increase public awareness and inspire a change in the big cat crisis.

To make your visit even more memorable check out our on-site lodging. Staying on-site allows for a more intimate experience of seeing the big cats in the morning and listening to them roar!
