Zeus Tiger

Zeus Zeus the tiger  was born at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild in 1996.  Zeus has limited vision and gets daily eye drops to manage the pain until he is strong enough for surgery. He was saved by Big Cat Rescue in May 2014  when the NY state attorney’s office decided to send a message to all of the backyard breeders, dealers and pseudo sanctuaries that they would no longer turn a blind eye to the danger that these facilities pose to the public and launched the biggest seizure of wild animals Read More

Nikita

    NIKITA Male Siberian Tiger DOB 8/20/95 Rescued 10/21/07   Nik, short for Nikita, is a very large tiger comparable in size to the massive Shere Khan. He is very shy and spends most of his time napping by the lake. When Nik first arrived, he was very elusive and would often hide in his den when keepers approached his enclosure. Gradually he became more and more curious about the new people in his life and would peer out the doorway to the den and watch everyone very closely. He has now warmed Read More

Big Cat Rescue Wants to be the Only Big Cat Sanctuary

Big Cat Rescue Wants to be the Only Big Cat Sanctuary   That is the lie that animal abusers tell everyone to try and change the subject from protecting exotic cats to a message of mere competition.   They trot out their modified version of our 20 year plan to back up their ridiculous claims, but they leave out the most important part of the plan, which is that there no longer be big cats suffering in captivity, and thus no longer a need for sanctuaries, including Big Cat Rescue's sanctuary. As the public becomes better Read More

Nirvana

NIRVANA Female Ocelot DOB 6/20/94 Rescued 7/24/94   Nirvana came to Big Cat Rescue from a broker on 7/27/94. He had left her at the vet’s office for dead because she was so dehydrated. Ocelots were once in great demand as pets thanks to their striking coats and small size. However, as with most exotic cats, their unpredictable nature and propensity for spraying soon changes people’s minds.   Many of these once beloved pets end up abandoned, sold to canned hunts or ultimately euthanized. Nirvana was rescued and Read More
