EFRC

 Open Tuesday - Sunday  10am - 5pm

 
   
With about 200 exotic felines calling the EFRC home, we are one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines.  

Since its founding in 1991, the EFRC has served as a nationally recognized leader in big cat rescue, conservation and care.

 

In the past 25 years the EFRC has grown from its humble beginnings with only three exotic felines to today caring for about 200 cats, representing nine different species.

We hope through our website you learn not only a little more about the EFRC and our work, but the plight of these majestic cats.
