Sand Cat Videos

Sand Cat Videos   http://youtu.be/BvKPPGTejE4   We are proud to have some of the happiest cats around. And right now our sand cats are at the top of that list as they love their new sand. A BCR supporter named Lindsay chose to have her friends give money to donate to a project for us rather than spend it on gifts for her. When donating money you can earmark the donation and tell us exactly what you want that money to go to. She picked a “Casper project” (named after a cougar we all loved) and wanted sand to be put in our Read More

In Case You Are Wondering What the Fuss Was About   Last Friday (Oct 3, 2014) the Florida Wildlife Commission inspectors came out, based on a complaint filed by Vernon Yates and Kathy Stearns, of Dade City Wild Things.  The officers told us that the rules say you can't have leopards in an open top cage unless you get a prior, written, approval by the FWC. This was news to us, because in the past it was OK to have leopards in open top cages and back when we first built the sanctuary, a lot of our leopard cages were built that way and Read More

Gilligan

Gilligan Male Canada lynx Appx. 1/1/07 Rescued 5/5/13     Gilligan's age is unknown. He was purchased along with Skipper at an auction. Gilligan had the tiniest cage measuring 5' x 7'. It was also the dirtiest of all of the cages. The mud floor was not mud, but feces covered with a sprinkling of straw. It appeared as though Gilligan had tried to keep much of his waste confined to one area on top of his plastic dog house. He had perched atop the house day after day to defecate. The large pile of feces cascaded out Read More

How to build a strong brand on Facebook

How to build a strong brand on Facebook   "Organic reach of the content brands publish in Facebook is destined to hit zero. It’s only a matter of time." says Social@Ogilvy writer on March 6, 2014. Non profits, like Big Cat Rescue, are "brands" so that didn't bode well for us. Social@Ogilvy went on to say, "100 brand pages, organic reach hovered at 6 percent, a decline of 49 percent from peak levels in October. For large pages with more than 500,000 Likes, organic reach hit 2 percent in February. And Facebook sources were unofficially Read More

Jumanji

  JUMANJI Male Leopard DOB 2/23/96   Since he is one of the first black leopards you see at the sanctuary, Jumanji is used to quite a bit of attention. Most days, he can be found in the shadiest part of his cat-a-tat lounging on his fern-covered tree log. It is very easy to see how well black leopards camouflage themselves in the jungle since most people walk right by without noticing him there. People magazine certainly noticed Jumanji though.  His photo was featured in an article written about Big Cat Rescue. Jumanji Read More
