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.

The new Big Cat Rescue Visa® Platinum Credit Card is here! This card, provided through Beneficial State Bank, offers competitive rates and reward points that can be used for travel and merchandise. Also, a percentage of every purchase you make with the card is donated back to Big Cat Rescue to support the cats. This adds up and is a GRRRR-EAT way to support the cats at no cost to you.

Once he was sure Mr. Easter Bunny was not a danger to him he picked up his adorable Easter Bunny and headed straight for the lake. You know, a tiger simply HAS to introduce Mr. Easter Bunny to the joys of playing in the water. ... See MoreSee Less
