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 <35 hours ago   ·  17
