Jumanji the Leopard Vet Emergency http://youtu.be/BkhFy7o1Aos When we found Jumanji Leopard "down" and unresponsive we had to make a quick decision; go in and wrangle him into a transport to go to the vet, or sedate him in this weakened state. It looked like heat stroke or maybe a bad encounter with a cane toad, but he didn't have a temperature and wasn't drooling as much as a toad usually causes.   Read More

Zeus Tiger

Zeus Zeus the tiger  was born at a pseudo sanctuary in Sinclairville, NY called JnK's Call of the Wild in 1996.  Zeus has limited vision and gets daily eye drops to manage the pain until he is strong enough for surgery. He was saved by Big Cat Rescue in May 2014  when the NY state attorney’s office decided to send a message to all of the backyard breeders, dealers and pseudo sanctuaries that they would no longer turn a blind eye to the danger that these facilities pose to the public and launched the biggest seizure of wild animals Read More
