Thurston

Thurston AKA Mr. Howell Male bobcat Appx. 1/1/2008 Rescued 5/5/13   Mr. Howell is approximately five years old and was Lovey's mate. He is declawed on all four paws and his left ear is folded over most likely the result of a past injury. The two of them shared a cramped cage about 5'x13'.

Tiger Slaughter Hell Tiger Preservation Center Bonnie Ringo

Tiger Slaughter Hell Tiger Tiger Preservation Center Bonnie Ringo A good friend just gave me a printed solicitation for money, asking to end the Tiger Slaughter Hell. While I agree with the need to end the private possession of big cats, I am dubious of the person sending out this plea for funds given her history:   In  2014 almost every picture of Bonnie and her husband Robert show them hugging adult big cats; sending the worst possible message. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tiger-Preservation-Center/198080996922225 http://www.tigerpreservationcenter.net/about-the-park/bob-bonnie/ In Read More

whats it like to work at big cat rescue

What's It Like to Work at Big Cat Rescue?   Most animal organizations our size have 30 paid staff, but we are able to maintain excellent care with about a third of that in paid staff because none of our paid staff are paid to work with animals. There are so many people who love big cats that they will do all of the cleaning, feeding, enrichment, operant conditioning and vet care for free. Our paid staff do the things animal lovers don't enjoy like managing the gift shop, managing the data base, paying attention to donors, writing newsletters Read More

cemetery

Big Cat Cemetery   Big Cat Rescue has rescued more than 250 cats since 1992 and most of them came when they were too old to be profitable to their former owners. Many were bred incessantly to create fur coats, to be sold as pets, or to be used in pay to play sessions where people will pay to see a cute baby tiger or lion. When they could no longer produce, or if they became sick or injured, they were discarded, and that is when they came to us. When sanctuaries help each other with large rescues, the oldest and sickest cats come Read More

Hybrid Facts

We Love ALL Cats We love big cats, small cats, wild cats, tame cats, friendly cats, fierce cats and YES, hybrid cats.  It is because we love all cats, for who they are, that we fight so hard to protect them.  Hybrid breeders will tell you that we seek legislation that will take your hybrids from you and that is a lie.  We do not support laws that displace existing cats from where they are, except in extreme cases of abuse and neglect.  We support bans on breeding and private ownership of wild cats and hybrid cats, but always make sure there Read More

Carole Baskin Takes on Big Cat Fight with Exotic Pet Owners

This is an article from 2007 that animal abusers like to point to as if it was some sort of investigative treasure.  It wasn't worth the paper it was written on and if you take the time to check out the numbers at the end of each twisted statement, you will know why. Other favorites of the bad guys are a non report from Mike Deeson in 2011, and one in 2006 from by Chris Hawes.  Those who exploit and abuse animals, and who meet no legitimate sort of accreditation themselves, will often say that we lost our BBB standing, which is just another Read More
