Zabu

ZABU White Female Siberian/Bengal Hybrid DOB 5/15/00 Rescued 5/3/04     http://youtu.be/QuXO1fjLiUU   Cameron the Lion and Zabu the White Tiger are Big Cat Rescue's odd couple. They were both born at a run down roadside zoo in 2000 and were rescued in 2004. At the New Hampshire zoo, Cameron had been raised with Zabu, the white tigress, with the hopes of cross breeding them and selling the resulting Ligers cubs. People often hybridize lions and tigers because they are either trying to create a novelty Read More

Shere Khan

  SHERE KHAN Male Bengal/Siberian Tiger DOB 12/20/94 Rescued 3/12/95 DOD 8/27/14   If you saw The Tiger Next Door on Animal Planet, then you saw the horrid conditions at the facility owned by Dennis Hill in Flatrock, Indiana.  The Tiger Next Door didn't air until 3/25/2010 and it was about USDA taking away Hill's permit and the DNR (Dept. of Natural Resources) seizing all but three tigers in 2005.  What the show doesn't bring out is that the conditions you saw in the movie were far better than when DNR first Read More

Jumanji

  JUMANJI Male Leopard DOB 2/23/96   Since he is one of the first black leopards you see at the sanctuary, Jumanji is used to quite a bit of attention. Most days, he can be found in the shadiest part of his cat-a-tat lounging on his fern-covered tree log. It is very easy to see how well black leopards camouflage themselves in the jungle since most people walk right by without noticing him there. People magazine certainly noticed Jumanji though.  His photo was featured in an article written about Big Cat Rescue. Jumanji Read More

Sabre

  Sabre Male Leopard DOB 3/1/92 Rescued 7/20/95 Sabre was 3 years old when he arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 7/20/95. Though he was only supposed to be here temporarily, his former owner moved and left no forwarding address. This could have been another sad ending as most are in the exotic pet world. Luckily, we had taken Sabre in and he will have a home here for life. He is very playful and fun loving and always has a mischievous look on his face. He loves to act very silly, running about his cat-a-tat and jumping on top Read More

Amazing Grace

AMAZING GRACE Female Ocelot DOB 5/1/92 -6/11/2014 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 9/27/96   Amazing Grace was reported to be a three-year-old female ocelot when she arrived on 9/27/96, but appears to be much older. Her ears were very tattered because the place where she lived before had cats with common walls; meaning that one wall of the cage was shared between adjoining cats. When Amazing Grace would rub against the wire, the cat next to her would bite off pieces of her ears trying to get a grip on her. She is safe from harm Read More

Cameron

CAMERON Lion DOB 10/1/00 Rescued 5/3/04   Cameron the Lion and Zabu the White Tiger are Big Cat Rescue's odd couple. They were both born at a run down roadside zoo in 2000 and were rescued in 2004. At the New Hampshire zoo, Cameron had been raised with Zabu, the white tigress, with the hopes of cross breeding them and selling the resulting Liger cubs. People often hybridize lions and tigers because they are either trying to create a novelty that people will pay to come see or trying to avoid the law. Until recently, Read More

Bengali

BENGALI Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger DOB 6/1/95 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 12/5/2000   Bengali used to ride on a horse drawn chariot in the circus. When he was retired here, we were told that he would surely kill someone because he was so confrontational. It is amazing what a change of living conditions can do for a tiger! Since his days are no longer spent on the road living in a transport carrier, but rather playing with his giant red Planet Ball, jumping in his pool, napping high on top of his den, or chuffing at his Read More

Levi

LEVI Male Bobcat DOB 4/30/95 Rescued 6/6/95   Levi came to live at Big Cat Rescue in 1995 along with 10 other Bobcats who were destined to be the next year’s fur coat harvest. Our Co-Founder had stumbled upon a facility in Omaha Nebraska that was raising Bobcats and Canadian Lynx for the purpose of harvesting the cats for their fur.   In order to spare these cats, all of them were purchased from the breeder and brought to live at the sanctuary.   Levi was neutered and now lives with Tiger Lilly.   Levi Read More

Apache

APACHE Male Bobcat Date of Birth: 5/5/95 Rescued  6/6/95   Apache came to Big Cat Rescue on June 6,1995. His previous owner saw him urinate on the carpet and decided that having a bobcat as a pet was not the best idea. Apache shares a large Cat.a.tat with Divinity.   He is one of the shyest in the bunch and is always leery of Keepers that approach his enclosure. He can be quickly won over however with a few tasty treats.   Apache looks very different from the other bobcats he lives with, his coat is Read More
