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.

Jennifer Myford ParkerNot really a newcomer, but I just wanted to comment and thank you for all you do. My little girl is 7 and it is her dream to work with big cats someday. I save all of the pictures you post and we look at them every night before she goes to bed, and we got a Roku just so she can watch your channel. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping not only all the cats, but also helping my little girl keep the fire in her dream alive <32 hours ago   ·  5

Kansas residents only! Please ask your Senator to oppose Senate bill 97 which would allow zoos to pimp out cubs. This form only works for KS residents, so if you live in Kansas, please help before 11 PM tonight and if you are not from KS, please don't frustrate yourselves trying to use the form. Government officials set up their pages to filter out those who are not in their districts. ... See MoreSee Less

Joy McGilveryBig Cat Rescue What exactly is meant by pimp out the cubs? What do the zoos do to them? I'm in Pennsylvania, but I'm still curious and I'll certainly share with friends in Kansas!2 hours ago   ·  1
Jen Marshallwas glad to fill this out, but KS residents know that Longbine isn't exactly a nature friendly human. Hoping it doesn't fall on deaf ears, blind eyes, and lack of compassion.2 hours ago   ·  2

Cindy Ferrie RasmussenKansas also uses gas chambers to euthanize shelter animals and is right up there in puppy mill operators. I know your issues is big cats, but clearly there's a huge animal rights problem in this state. (red = states that use gas chambers)4 hours ago   ·  3
