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

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

What's the Difference Between the AZA & ZAA?
More than can be included in this article, but here are two of the differences that are most important to saving big cats.
Origins of AZA vs ZAA
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) was founded in 1924. The Zoological Association of America (ZAA) claims to have been founded in 2005, but appears to have just been an idea that never really took off until the Lowry Park Zoo, under leadership of Lex Salisbury, lost its AZA accreditation in 2008.

Usually, people are either dreamers or doers. Not both.
That’s why I feel so blessed to be surrounded every day by Big Cat Rescuers – volunteers, interns, staff and our fantastic donors – who are the magical and rare combination of both!
It is because of our generous donors that we can dream big dreams for our cats and then take the actions to make those dreams a reality. I hope you enjoy reading this annual update/appeal letter and viewing the video. Both outline just Read More

Operant Conditioning Video

We train only natural behaviors, no entertainment types of behaviors.
Clicker Training: Clicker training is a positive-reinforcement training system. It is Read More
What's Up With Humane Watch Attacking Big Cat Rescue?
By Howard Baskin, JD, MBA, Advisory Board Chairman of Big Cat Rescue
HumaneWatch is a project of the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) and is entirely dedicated to spreading disparaging information about the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) with the goal of drying up the organization’s fundraising. CCF is the brain child of Richard “Rick” Berman, a longtime Washington, D.C. public relations specialist who is funded by special interests and powerful industries. Berman and Read More
