Catty Shack Ranch is the #1 Jacksonville Attraction on TripAdvisor!

Come see why we're the #1 attraction in Jacksonville! As many of our reviewers point out, we aren't a typical attraction. We focus on rescuing and rehoming animals, mainly large, endangered cats, from various situations. When you come to the ranch, you'll get a safe, close-up look of our residents - some of which weigh upwards of 600 pounds! A tour guide will teach you about these animals, including their plight in the wild and in captivity. All the workers you see at the ranch are volunteers, so the proceeds of your event tickets go directly to taking care of our animals!

Don't forget to bring your camera! You'll get plenty of beautiful pictures of our residents, especially during the night feedings!
