In honor of Tiki's birthday, our January donation is to the Exotic Feline Rescue Center (EFRC) in Center Point, Indiana. With about 200 exotic felines, they are one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines. When you visit you will see lions, tigers, leopards, pumas, bobcats, ocelots, lynxes, and several other lesser-known types.
I visited several years ago (I'm due for another road trip!) and here is a photo I took then:
Center Point is about 60 miles southwest of Indianapolis and about 4 hours drive from Chicago; if you're ever in the area, I strongly encourage you to visit. You can even arrange to stay overnight and awaken to the roars of the cats! That is definitely on my bucket list.
Thanks to everyone at EFRC for their dedication to these beautiful animals.
