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.

If you sign up for our free monthly newsletter we will keep you updated on pending new laws regarding big cats as pets or cub pay to play schemes. TOGETHER we can all make a positive difference.

The monthly email newsletter also keeps you updated on the cats and the happenings here at the sanctuary.

HarkerThanks for sharing this and I'm sorry I missed so much of this.I'm so unhappy that the people of that Am.Legion post would allow that my grandfather had been a member of the post in Cocoa that had the same post number when I was a very young woman but I gues things change and it seems not for the better :(18 minutes ago

Lions are primarily ground-dwellers, but occasionally jump up tree branches. Most Lions will remain in the same territory all year long, however some are nomadic and follow the seasonal prey. ... See MoreSee Less
