The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats


Most-ImportantThis bill called the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation to ever be introduced to protect lions, tigers and other exotic wild cats from being kept as pets and in miserable roadside zoos. It ended the 113th Congressional session with more than 120 co sponsors.  Now we are working to re introduce the bill in early 2015.

Who is Big Cat Rescue?



Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction.  We are home to about 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.

Lynda BowlinSurprisingly, no. All three eat out of each other's dishes, which makes no difference because they all get the same food. I guess hope springs eternal.6 hours ago   ·  7
Dee M EnsorMy Milo is jealous he does not like any of the other cats around me and hisses at them and smacks at them. So he does not like to share me. he loves to sit with me and follows me like a dog most of the time. He also likes to play fetch with a straw.5 hours ago   ·  4
