Two Blind Bobcats Rescued
Not one, but two, blind bobcats have made their way to Big Cat Rescue this Spring.
On December 5th, Rufus, a 2 month old male bobcat kitten, was found on the side of a South Carolina road after he had been hit by a car. His jaw was broken and he was comatose.

After several weeks of recuperating, it became Read More

Out with the Old in with the New
According to the National Christmas Tree Assosiation, Americans purchased a whopping 27 million Christmas trees in 2010 spending an average of $36 per tree for a grand total of $976 million! Where do all of those trees go once the holidays are over? A lot of places actually. Discarded Christmas trees are mulched for landscaping use, used whole on shorelines to prevent soil erosion, and even burned to produce electricity. Did you know that the big cats like Christmas trees? They more than like them, they love them! Read More
3 Connecting Tunnels, 2 Enclosure Additions, and a Leopard Jungle Gym
It has been a busy month for Big Cat Rescue. As always, during the holidays, we receive many more visitors to the sanctuary, which is great because we are able to share the stories of the cats and inform the public how they can help put an end to the abuse of big cats in captivity! Big Cat Rescuers have also been very busy enhancing the lives of the cats residing at the sanctuary.
A few of the most recent projects included an enclosure addition for Purr-sistance the ocelot Read More

3 New Tigers Call Big Cat Rescue Home
We are very excited to announce the rescue of three very special tigers; Amanda, Andre & Arthur.
The economic crunch has been felt nationwide by all and charities are no exception. In fact it is non-profits that are often affected first. When money becomes tight and every dollar counts, donating to a charity is the first budget cut for most individuals. These difficult financial times struck one particular sanctuary in Texas so hard that they were forced to declare bankruptcy Read More

Phantom Fur Ball to Rescue Tigers
We decided not to hold our annual Fur Ball this year so that we could focus our attention on stopping the abuses the big cats face, at their root, through legislation. This does not mean, however, that we do not desperately need the funds that are usually generated from the event. Each year the proceeds from the Fur Ball go towards the care of the cats that we rescue. This year is no different and in fact, at the time of writing this issue, we are coordinating the rescue of 3 tigers.
