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.

Zabu the White Tiger has something to say about everything. Do you know anyone like that? ... See MoreSee Less

Emily MonahanI found this piece of sheet music from 1913 in my collection. Is this what Cameron and Zabu do on moonlit nights?? Hmmmmmm... Thanks for all you do to advocate for these mystical beings. St. Francis smiles from the sky.3 hours ago   ·  10
Judy BadyIf I had money to give, I would, because those enclosures are still too small for those huge cats, (and more humans should practice birth control in order to stop encroaching on animal territory).3 hours ago   ·  1

Pinky SammetMy rats are drinking water like there's no tomorrow! My cats are sleeping on their beds because it's raining outside. The rooster and the hen are hiding on the yard. The horses are playing on the rain, one is running on the yard and the other is rolling on the grass, so cute! Two of the dogs are sleeping and one is here by my side having her head petted. The snakes are sleeping, the iguanas are basking on their heated rock and the toad is just minding his on business inside his cave. The bunny is eating.6 hours ago   ·  10
