Catty Shack Volunteer Day

Join us as we volunteer at the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary whose mission is to “provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their plight in the wild and captivity.”

The last hour will be reserved for a guided tour of the facility!

Catty Shack Saturday Night Feeding

Leave dogs at home ~!

During an evening visit at Catty Shack Ranch, you’ll be guided where to park by one of our volunteers. From your parking spot, you need only walk a short distance to our entrance to check in. If you purchased tickets online, we will check your name against our list. If not, no problem, you can pay when you arrive. Your visit will start with an introductory video that explains a little about us and our history. Then you will go on a guided walking tour with the opportunity to see our resident animals, which include tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, lynx, coatimundis, and foxes. Tours begin at 6:00 PM and leave approximately every 20 minutes. Tours last about 45 minutes and you are encouraged to ask questions of the guide as he or she tells you about the animals.

Following your tour, you can wander around and revisit the animals, head to our entrance area and get something to eat or drink from our concession stand, or sit and relax on any of our benches and watch the animals enjoy their evening. The last tour leaves at 7:00 PM and we close the entrance gate at 7:15 PM. At 7:30 PM you get to watch us feed the animals! You’ll watch as we hand out as much as 600 pounds of meat, but you will hear the excitement too. The smaller animals – lynx, foxes, and coatimundis – are fed earlier in the day and not part of the public night feeding. The facility is mostly packed dirt or grass, accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. Bring your camera and take as many pictures as you like!!
