Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill facility committed to rescuing abused, abandoned and unwanted Big Cats. Since our inception in 1992, we have rescued more than 500 Big Cats and over 50 other exotic animals, giving them a caring, lifelong home at the refuge. These magnificent creatures are the unfortunate, unwanted products of the private trade in exotic animals; most of them would have been destroyed if we were not able to take them.
We are constantly building large natural habitats for our growing family of Big Cats, which give them the room to run, play and explore like never before.
