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 cats really enjoy watching the ducks on the lake.

Kathy PrendergastThese tigers look like they're part Siberian, with that ruff they have...I have heard there is a lot of captive cross-breeding of Siberians with Bengals, I guess because Siberians are bigger and fluffier and zoo visitors find them more attractive, while Bengals are brighter with more distinct markings...? Anyway, it's a useless practice for both sub-species. They would never cross-breed in the wild because they live almost on different ends of the continent, and are uniquely adapted to their own environments. Thankful that at least accredited zoos don't allow that anymore.6 hours ago   ·  1
