Natasha

Natasha the lynx was rescued from being turned into a fur coat 20 years ago. Since then she has lived in progressively larger cages, but has never had an unobstructed view of the sky. This may be her last year on this earth. Would you give her the chance to see the stars above and bask in the sun, in an enclosure that measures in acres rather than sq feet? Cougars, bobcats, servals, caracals and other exotic cats are in need of room to run too. We will be using the area that you see in the video, but it needs totally different walls to keep Read More

Zeus

  ZEUS Male Siberian Lynx DOB 5/1/97 Rescued 6/24/97   Zeus arrived at Big Cat Rescue from the same fur farm as Willow. He and Apollo, another fur farm survivor, share a large habitat across from the lake. Although, you would not normally find two adult male Lynxes living together in the wild, in captivity this is actually a form of enrichment. They play together, groom each other, stalk ducks together and even sleep curled up next to each other. They have a habit of puffing air out of their noses when agitated, especially Read More

They play together, groom each other, Read More

Goodbye to Willow the Siberian Lynx   Female Siberian Lynx DOB 5/6/94 1/3/2013 Arrived at Big Cat Rescue 6/1/94   Willow (on right) was born at a fur farm in Canada. We had bought all of the kittens the farm had and they were shipped here in crates so small that the kittens could not move. The little wire crates appeared to be full of sticky, smelly gray fur. We opened the crates and pulled out the contents, and found a group of soiled, starving, sick and stressed little kittens. None of them died in transit, which was Read More

Two Days Until Big Cat Rescue Turns 20!   Thank you to all of the wonderful donors and matching donors who made it possible for us to forego our big gala, the Fur Ball, this year and concentrate on changing the laws so that big cats are not born into lives of confinement and deprivation as pets and props. As you can see from the screen shot above you helped us exceed our goal of $100,000 two days before the sanctuary celebrates its 20th year of saving exotic cats. Thank you !!!  http://youtu.be/OhR4-n2A0j0 Today at Read More
