We Love ALL Cats
We love big cats, small cats, wild cats, tame cats, friendly cats, fierce cats and YES, hybrid cats. It is because we love all cats, for who they are, that we fight so hard to protect them.

We do not support laws that displace existing cats from where they are, except in extreme cases of abuse and neglect. We support bans on breeding and private ownership of wild cats and hybrid cats, but always make sure there Read More

Usually, people are either dreamers or doers. Not both.
That’s why I feel so blessed to be surrounded every day by Big Cat Rescuers – volunteers, interns, staff and our fantastic donors – who are the magical and rare combination of both!
It is because of our generous donors that we can dream big dreams for our cats and then take the actions to make those dreams a reality. I hope you enjoy reading this annual update/appeal letter and viewing the video. Both outline just Read More
