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.

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 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougarsservals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.

Quinton Aaron Visits Big Cat Rescue!

Actor Quinton Aaron, most famously known for his lead role in the movie The Blind Side along with Sandra Bullock, visited the Big Cat Rescue in 2012.

Having played the part of abandoned and homeless Michael Oher who then found a wonderful home with the Touhy family, Mr. Aaron said he could readily identify with the cats who had been similarly abandoned and then found a wonderful home at Big Cat Rescue.

While he was here, Mr. Aaron made this video along with a radio public service announcement for us It was an honor having Mr. Aaron visit us and we very much appreciate his passion for the cats and his support!
