The US Fish and Wildlife Service wants to hear from you. Please take just 30 seconds to visit their site and comment on a proposed rule change that will help protect tigers.

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.

Baby Bobcat Rescue
Well, he was a baby when this whole ordeal started anyway...
Back in November of 2010 we were contacted by the RI State Vet who was in the process of seizing a bobcat kitten that had been sold to a local man by the surname of Tardie by a backyard breeder operating under the name of Bitterroot Bobcat and Lynx. Barbara Roe claims on her site to have been breeding and selling bobcats and lynx as pets since 1985 and charges $1,500 and will ship, apparently, no questions asked. If anyone cared about the law they would have Read More

Happy New Year from Big Cat Rescue!
Last year was our best year ever, thanks to so many wonderful supporters like you! We were able to accomplish so much good for the big cats here and world wide thanks to your financial support and your letters to lawmakers and decision makers. We just couldn't do it without you.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Kwanzaa!
It may be cold where ever you are, and is even cold where we are, but thanks to wonderful animal lovers like you our hearts are ever warmed by your thoughtfulness.
We have been busily gathering pine needles for for our cats' dens and are eagerly waiting for Christmas to pass so that we can get the truckloads of trees that are left over each year. We cut the boughs and pile them in the dens so that the cats can nestle down in them and keep warm.
We've been building larger room additions for Read More
