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.

Big Cat Rescue is at Expo

Expo is always an amazing event – animal shelter professionals from around the country, and the around the world, gathering to learn best practices, share innovative ideas, and most importantly – join forces.

This year’s Expo in New Orleans has an extra special feel to it. Read more at

Safari Days at Big Cat Rescue Dear Big Cat Rescuer, If you loved the March for Lions event last year, you will really love Safari Days! Once a year we will host a reduced price day for all ages where you can come and get an overview of the sanctuary.

The money from these events will be contributed to protecting exotic cats in the wild...where they belong! We sold out quickly last year so be sure to mark the date of Sunday, Father's Day June 21, 2015 from noon till 3PM.

Watch your email box for an invitation to purchase tickets as soon as they are available. If you are not yet on our email newsletter list go here to get in it so you do not miss your invitation:
