  • It was awesome. I had fun and the animals were really adorable. 10/10 skating lion.
  • Take the time to visit and support this 501(c)(3) in Rhome, Texas. They are doing amazing work in humanely housing lions, tigers, AND bears... Oh my. They usually do 1 to 2 tours per day and the suggested donation is $20. It a walking tour on some varying terrain, so keep that in mind.
  • We visited on a Friday 11am tour before Christmas. It was an awesome experience. I had learned about this through an tiger rescue mentioned on Animal Planet's show "The vet life". It is the best kept secret in the DFW area. We frequently are at Texas Motor Speedway and it was only 15 minutes from there. It is donation only experience with recommendation of $20/adult. The tour was as described. It was a lot of walking but great experience to learn more about the bears, cats, and other animals that have been rescued. I have changed my Amazon Smile over to support them.
  • Amazing experience!! The animals are very well cared for.
  • We really did not know what to expect and if you did not know you were going there, you may just pass it. We were very impressed with the care they take of these animals that have struggled with abuse and neglect. I was extremely impressed by our guide and her attention to ensuring that the animals were comfortable with us being there which is the reason for only 2 tours a day. They are dedicated to making this stop in the lives of all these animals the absolute best that they can. My son who is 13 now wants to donate his time and food to help care for them. Thank you IEAS for doing all you do.
