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.

Is anyone else have trouble falling asleep because there is a lion roaring at a tiger?

I am sooooo sleepy?

Naomi PerreiraI am, but it is because of breaking news that came from BBC News a few minutes ago about Syria, and also from Stars and Stripes about Afghanistan too. Neither one are good news I am afraid to write. Facebook has them posted. Right now I would love to be that Caracal pictured and at BCR being kept awake by the roar of a lion at a tiger than reading and knowing what I do now. Praying for God's intervention in this world and peace urgently.58 minutes ago
