Saturday field trip: Exotic Feline Rescue Center

  • Exotic Feline Rescue Center 2221 East Ashboro Road Center Point, IN, 47840 United States

An opportunity to shoot (with a camera) more lions and tigers and their relatives than you have ever seen in one place. With about 200 exotic felines calling the Exotic Feline Rescue Center home, it is one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines. 

We will be there at 10:00 am when the gates open.  Admission with the group is $25 per person. The fee is higher than the normal rate of $10, and entitles us to move through the center with our guide at a much slower pace.  We will have over two hours of shooting time.  The address is 2221 E. Ashboro Road, Centerpoint, IN, and it takes 1:20 from the Art Center to drive there.

If you are interested in carpooling, we will leave from the old Target (now called Emporium 40) at Washington and I-465 (northwest corner of 465 exit).  Enter the lot from High School Road.  We will meet on the west side of the building.  Take-off time will be 8:50 a.m. to get us there just before 10:00.

IMPORTANT WARDROBE TIPS: As the folks at the Center say, wear comfortable shoes and clothes that you don't mind getting occasionally dirty.  Some of the tigers will spray, so be ready! The guided tours are outside on gravel paths so dress for the weather and a long rocky walk.
