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.

Has everyone had a good holiday? What did YOU do?

Mr. Howell followed Lovey around, snuggled with Lovey, got bossed around by Lovey, had yummy treats, watched the tours go by, and made faces at the interns.

Christine S. BoydI am really grateful for your stand with the big wildcats. I've had to unsubscribe from a different organization, as I now understand quite deeply the meaning of a wild cat "sanctuary" where there are no visitors permitted.2 hours ago   ·  2
