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.

Cindy WarnerThese two, Zeus and Keisha will always have a very special place in my heart, more than likely because this was the first rescue that I got to witness from the very beginning plus watching the series on their rescue and the deplorable conditions they came from. It makes not on my lips smile but my heart to see them happy and playing Thank you for offering them a loving home.26 minutes ago   ·  2
