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

Cat Care

Big Cat Care   Big Cat Rescue has evolved since its inception in 1992. By 1997 we had seen enough of the abuse and abandonment caused by the pet trade that we had previously engaged in to know that there was no reason to breed exotic animals for lives in cages. As a result we increased our efforts through spaying, neutering and cage building to ensure that we would no longer be a part of the problem. As we have continued to learn about the causes of so much suffering we have become active in stopping the exotic pet trade through education Read More
