Sabre

  Sabre Male Leopard DOB 3/1/92 Rescued 7/20/95 Sabre was 3 years old when he arrived at Big Cat Rescue on 7/20/95. Though he was only supposed to be here temporarily, his former owner moved and left no forwarding address. This could have been another sad ending as most are in the exotic pet world. Luckily, we had taken Sabre in and he will have a home here for life. He is very playful and fun loving and always has a mischievous look on his face. He loves to act very silly, running about his cat-a-tat and jumping on top Read More

Amazing Grace

AMAZING GRACE Female Ocelot DOB 5/1/92 -6/11/2014 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 9/27/96   Amazing Grace was reported to be a three-year-old female ocelot when she arrived on 9/27/96, but appears to be much older. Her ears were very tattered because the place where she lived before had cats with common walls; meaning that one wall of the cage was shared between adjoining cats. When Amazing Grace would rub against the wire, the cat next to her would bite off pieces of her ears trying to get a grip on her. She is safe from harm Read More

AdvoCat 2014 06

The June AdvoCat   When to Euthanize a Tiger   At Big Cat Rescue we have a general  decision tree that we and our vets use to determine when it is time to euthanize a big cat, but every situation is different. The vast majority of the time we just aren't sure that it is the right decision until we do the necropsy, which is the animal version of an autopsy.  The reason it is so hard to know, if we are doing the right thing, is because cats are hard wired to live the mantra of the wild; "Survival of the fittest."  They just will Read More

Cameron

CAMERON Lion DOB 10/1/00 Rescued 5/3/04   Cameron the Lion and Zabu the White Tiger are Big Cat Rescue's odd couple. They were both born at a run down roadside zoo in 2000 and were rescued in 2004. At the New Hampshire zoo, Cameron had been raised with Zabu, the white tigress, with the hopes of cross breeding them and selling the resulting Liger cubs. People often hybridize lions and tigers because they are either trying to create a novelty that people will pay to come see or trying to avoid the law. Until recently, Read More

Now at Big Cat Rescue June 16 2014

How Your Money is Being Spent // TAMPA, Fla. - ...The best three out of 62 bay area agencies evaluated by the respected and independent Charity Navigator are Big Cat Rescue, Special Operations Warrior Foundation and Homeless Emergency Project. Big Cat Rescue got top marks for spending 87 percent of its revenue on programs and less than six percent on fundraising. But a big part of the rating is accountability and transparency, which includes listing board members, key staff and making their IRS form 990 available to anyone. "They want Read More

Kimba Tiger Goes Back Outside   Even though Kimba really seemed to enjoy all of the attention in the Cat Hospital, along with the brushing, frequent baths and treats every 2 hours, she is very happy to be back outside in her Cat-a-Tat. She is chuffing and acting like it is new all over again to her.  She will remain on our critical list for some time though as she has a long road ahead to recover from being so ill and starved.   Read about why she was in the Cat Hospital: http://bigcatrescue.org/now-big-cat-rescue-june-11-2014/   Read Read More

JnK Rescue Photos via IFAW

JnK Rescue Photos via IFAW When we rescued Kimba, Zeus and Keisha from JnK's Call of the Wild in Sinclairville, NY we were not allowed to film but IFAW did and shared these photos of the rescue with us to share with you. Kimba   Kimba the tiger had been almost entirely unresponsive to the rescue efforts going on around her, and had been sleeping in her den, but when we tried to shut her in it, she came out and refused to go back in.  There were no safety entrances on the cages, so there was no way to hook up our transport unless Read More
