Jumanji

  JUMANJI Male Leopard DOB 2/23/96   Since he is one of the first black leopards you see at the sanctuary, Jumanji is used to quite a bit of attention. Most days, he can be found in the shadiest part of his cat-a-tat lounging on his fern-covered tree log. It is very easy to see how well black leopards camouflage themselves in the jungle since most people walk right by without noticing him there. People magazine certainly noticed Jumanji though.  His photo was featured in an article written about Big Cat Rescue. Jumanji Read More

Keisha

Keisha Keisha the tiger was born in 2000 at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild.  She was the second generation of tigers born at that facility and some reports state than 5 generations were born there over the years.  While the website proclaimed to be a sanctuary, in fact, all but one of the 11 tigers had been bred for use as pay to play props.  According to volunteers, Zeus was the son of the original female, Kimba, and then was bred back to his mother to create the other 9 tigers, including Keisha.  This Read More

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

Between 5,000 and 6,000 tigers are believed to be in captivity in China. Worldwide Read More

JnK

New York JnK Tiger Rescue http://youtu.be/1TK4MTqnG7E http://youtu.be/CRuyvdIYWJk DejaVu is all I can say. It happens over and over, like a recurring nightmare for the wild animals suffering through it; only the names and places change. Someone wants to “rescue” wild animals because that seems like glamorous work, so they buy animals (and just prolong the problem) until the really bad guys find out there is a new place to dump last year’s photo cubs, and then the “rescues” become more legitimate, in the eyes of the “rescuer” Read More

Sheena

Sheena     Sheena's owner was unwilling to meet the standards required to keep her so she was surrendered to the state of Ohio. Will you help Sheena? http://www.razoo.com/story/Sheena-Serval-Rescue In 2003 John Babb of Berea, Kentucky shipped an 8 week old serval kitten to a woman in Ohio, who named her Sheena. (The breeder's website boasts that he is still selling serval kittens to pet owners in the U.S. for $6,000 and abroad for $9,000.) Fast forward 11 years...
