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

Zabu

ZABU White Female Siberian/Bengal Hybrid DOB 5/15/00 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 Ligers cubs.

 Cypress the Rehab Bobcat Update Cypress the bobcat was rescued on January 4, 2014 and has been recovering in the West - Boensch Cat Hospital for these past 7 weeks.  She had been resisting eating whole prey items, such as rats and chicks, so we were getting worried that she would never switch off the ground diet we have been giving her to the real prey items that she would have to eat in the wild. We couldn't let her lose her ability to recognize prey and insisted that she eat what wild bobcats eat, but maybe Cypress knew best because Read More
