Now at Big Cat Rescue June 11 2014

Kimba Tiger Update On June 8, 2014 both of our vets came out to re evaluate Kimba the tigress, as she just isn't eating as well as Zeus and Keisha.  They were deliberating over what would be the best and safest course of action for Kimba because she is 20 years old and extremely frail.  We didn't think she would even make it through the rescue and transport to FL as she was so starved and depleted.  Kimba would only eat a few morsels of food and then stop, so they decided to try and feed her several times a day to try and build her strength Read More

Skipper

Skipper Male Canada lynx Appx. 1/1/07 Rescued 5/5/13   Skipper's age is unknown. He had been purchased along with Gilligan at an auction. Skipper had the largest cage measuring about 5' x 30'.

Bengali

BENGALI Male Siberian/Bengal Tiger DOB 6/1/95 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 12/5/2000   Bengali used to ride on a horse drawn chariot in the circus. When he was retired here, we were told that he would surely kill someone because he was so confrontational. It is amazing what a change of living conditions can do for a tiger! Since his days are no longer spent on the road living in a transport carrier, but rather playing with his giant red Planet Ball, jumping in his pool, napping high on top of his den, or chuffing at his Read More

Big Cat Rescue gives a huge SHOUT OUT to Porsche!

Big Cat Rescue gives a huge SHOUT OUT to Porsche!   This month Porsche is unveiling their new SUV called the Macan – which means Tiger in Indonesian. When Big Cat Rescue recently learned that Porsche dealerships around the country planned to rent tiger cubs as part of the “entertainment” at their Macan launch parties, we knew we had to try and educate Porsche about why this is cub abuse. We contacted Porsche North America's headquarters in Atlanta and explained that Big Cat Rescue as well as other GFAS-accredited sanctuaries Read More

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

Apache

APACHE Male Bobcat Date of Birth: 5/5/95 Rescued  6/6/95   Apache came to Big Cat Rescue on June 6,1995. His previous owner saw him urinate on the carpet and decided that having a bobcat as a pet was not the best idea. Apache shares a large Cat.a.tat with Divinity.   He is one of the shyest in the bunch and is always leery of Keepers that approach his enclosure. He can be quickly won over however with a few tasty treats.   Apache looks very different from the other bobcats he lives with, his coat is Read More
