Get Started

As you view images of BCFC online, if you like what you see, call us at 850 722-9927 to schedule your tour.  BCFC functions to provide forever homes to exotic felines from around the world.  We are devoted to the preservation and conservation of 24 felines who make their permanent homes here.  Bear Creek is not a zoo….each cat is assigned to a dedicated handler who provides care and enrichment through direct contact!  Come see for yourself.  These are truly intelligent, beautiful and amazing cats.

Guided tours:

When was the last time you touched a bobcat or an African Serval?   BCFC invites you to an up close and personal visit with six species:  Florida Panthers, North American Bobcats, African Servals, South American Geoffroy’s Cats, Jaguarundis, Siberian Lynx!  Cameras are encouraged.  There are no additional charges for great photo opportunities.  You’ll see extremely rare felines, not normally seen in captivity.  Some hands on contact is permitted by FFWCC and USDA.

Contact by phone: 850 722-9927


Tours: Are scheduled by reservation only – 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE. Our tours are private, and limited to 8 persons. No walk ups allowed.

Cancellations: Our tours are staffed with volunteers, so please honor your commitment by canceling at least 24 hours or more prior. We typically have a waiting list and would prefer to accommodate those who are on it.

Inclement Weather – Heavy rain, wind and very high heat do not agree with our cats. Your tour may be cancelled due to poor weather. We make every effort to contact you when we have to cancel, but if you are unsure, please call us first before arriving.

Group Outings and Educational Opportunities – Special group outings and educational presentations can be customized. Please contact us for more information.

BCFC’s feline population is supported by your tax deductible donations, typically $50 per person, children 6 up to 17 $25. Please call to request permission before bringing children under the age of 6.
