Joseph’s Pride Lion-Tigers new beginning

Watch as we let Joseph and his pride of another lion and two tigers into their new large enclosure. These cats have been settling in since October and getting use to their new life here at Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida. Sadly, there are still at least hundreds of cats like them out there in the U.S. Some states have little or no laws regarding ownership of big cats. And those that have tough laws lack the abilities to enforce them. Few people realize the small amount that eventually find a decent home at one of the few good rescues/sanctuaries Read More

The Great Escape   Big Cat Rescue planned for this escape for months. Last year a baby bobcat call came in as the third one in three weeks. He only had one eye and a lump on his belly the size of an orange. Big Cat Rescue was there to get him the medical attention he needed. Emergency surgery repaired the hernia in his abdominal wall. The swelling was the contents of his intestines and other internal organs that had spilled out of the Read More

White Tiger Species Spotlight

White Tiger Species Spotlight


In this special edition of Species Spotlight we look at the VERY popular white tiger (which isn’t a separate species of tiger.) White tigers in captivity are produced from inbreeding and they actually weaken the captive tiger gene pool and they do nothing to help real conservation of the tiger.

Sabre the Black Leopard Neutered at Big Cat Rescue

Sabre the Black Leopard Neutered at Big Cat Rescue Whenever you have to treat a big cat, it is a risk. Sometimes they can react poorly to being put under for simple procedures.

And we also took this opportunity to give him a check up, weigh him, and move him to another enclosure back on the tour path were he likes to look at the silly people. Follow along as Dr. Liz and Scott make Read More
