Camp Roar 2015 is now open for registration. 8-11 year old children are invited to experience a camp like no other in Indiana. Campers will enjoy learning about our lions, tigers, leopards, pumas, servals and bobcats while taking part in educational activities that will include BIG CAT and endangered species facts, rescue stories of our resident felines, and the day-to-day running of the rescue center. Please click on the link below for more information.

A question most asked during the summer is about our horsefly traps. Visitors encounter several horsefly traps during their tour and always question their use and the purpose of the big black ball. The horseflies are drawn to the big black ball as it heats up. The horseflies then fly upward and are trapped in a jar. The center needs to control the horsefly population because their bites are severe enough to cause the cats to bleed. There is always a need for horsefly traps at the center.

We want to thank the Peter Emily Foundation for their two-day visit on May 16 and 17. During the two days four tigers, two leopards and one serval received much needed dental care. They performed 17 root canal therapies and 10 other procedures which included periodontal surgery. Without their assistance, seven cats would still be suffering.
