If only they could speak to us in a language that we understand. Then we might know the horrors they have survived and be more inclined to protect others from enduring their fate.
I'll share with you what I do know and hope that will inspire you to help these cougars and to do all you can to end the trade in exotic cats.

Animal House, in Moulton, AL, was a backyard zoo that operated with a USDA license up until 2006 when it was revoked. At the time Alabama had no laws to regulate the private possession of wild animals, so once USDA washed their Read More

Your Honest Opinion
We are trying something new with our main YouTube channel at YouTube.com/BigCatRescue. In the past we would launch one video per week and make sure it was the best we could offer, with concise editing, music and scripted dialogues where necessary.
Anything else we filmed, such as keeper walk abouts, long form videos, mini clips, etc. would be posted at our secondary channel YouTube.com/DailyBigCat
It dilutes our branding to divide our videos across two channels, but we don't want our loyal primary channel viewers Read More

Visitors to the zoo are encouraged to interact with the animals in the vast collection, which includes an alligator, different types of monkeys, birds, two different kinds of anteater, a fox and other exotic creatures.
In December 1987, the Associated Press reported that Tabraue was arrested Read More
Male Canada lynx
Gilligan's age is unknown. He was purchased along with Skipper at an auction.
Gilligan had the tiniest cage measuring 5' x 7'. It was also the dirtiest of all of the cages. The mud floor was not mud, but feces covered with a sprinkling of straw. It appeared as though Gilligan had tried to keep much of his waste confined to one area on top of his plastic dog house. He had perched atop the house day after day to defecate. The large pile of feces cascaded out Read More

Genie the Sandcat is rushed to the vet when her keepers note that she is acting weird.
Genie Sandcat was sedated in a glass box used for domestic cats.
This was to make sedation easier on her since she is only 3.3 pounds and 14 years old.
Dr. Wynn keeps a close eye on her vitals.
The monitors are just all over the place, so she has to rely on feel, sound and instincts.
For such an old and tiny cat, Genie Sandcat has some fearsome Read More
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.
