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.

Robert KleinschmidtYour methods are amazing with the vaccinations. The dirty look from Alex tiger is priceless. Of all your tigers who is the least aggressive? I Follow all the vids and don't recall seeing Zabu showing any facial aggression. Had to give my Jasper weekly shots, I had more of a problem giving them than my cat did getting them.3 hours ago   ·  2
