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.

There were no safety entrances on the cages, so there was no way to hook up our transport unless Read More

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
