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 January 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.

Who wants a quick laugh? Watch Zabu run into a tree with a box over her head, see a bobcat fall off a log, laugh at a lion trying to grab his own tail, and more. Pass the laughs on. ... See MoreSee Less

What is an "Advocat" anyway?

AdvoCats receive a monthly e-newsletter that details current issues that need to be addressed by either contacting your legislators or other change makers. Additionally, when there are issues that affect your specific community or state, you will receive a notification asking you to contact officials. Your level of participation is up to you and the monthly e-newsletter really provides you an inside perspective of the wide array of issues threatening big cats.

Thank you for your support of the cats and we look forward to you joining our community of AdvoCats!
