"Rescuing Exotic Cats Nation Wide"

Come Stay With Us

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge
Rescuing Exotic Cats Nationwide

TCWR’s mission is to provide a lifetime refuge for all rescued animals with the care, safety, and well being of the animals being the number one priority. All animals are treated with the dignity and compassion they deserve. TCWR has developed a reputation for this compassionate care across the country with law enforcement, universities, and others sharing a commitment to the Big Cats and other animals. This reputation has, unfortunately, made a waiting list a necessity.

Of the many refuges in the United States, TCWR is one of the largest facilities of its kind open to the public anywhere in the world. Big Cats have been rescued from many states across the country including Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, New York, Kansas, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Montana, and Tennessee and are provided a home in a caring and nurturing environment.
