Lions Tigers - Joseph's Pride update
Joseph's Pride are two lions and two tigers that were rescued from a facility in Columbus, Ohio on October 19th, 2007.
This rescue was made possible by the support of IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) and by all of our supporters who helped us raise the money to rescue these cats.
As you can see in this update all four cats are doing very well and are enjoying their one acre enclosure complete with pool and long grass to play and hide in!

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

Tigers Playing in the Grass 2007
With more than 100 big cats on 45 acres, we are always in the process of refurbishing and replacing old cages. Landscaping is another ongoing project whether it be hauling off tree limbs lost in a storm, to mowing acres of grass, to installing beautiful plants to give the cats shade, privacy and the excitement of the butterflies. Most of the trees and flowers at Big Cat Rescue were donated and this video thanks John Deere, Tampa Bay Nursery, Babs of Garden Magic, our volunteers and those of you who make it possible.

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

Haley's Act Video 2007
Haley's Act will bring change for animals that are suffering and being exploited in zoos and roadside attractions.
Here, many places allow public contact with big cats (cubs in particular, adult big cats are illegal to come in contact with but it happens A LOT). It's ridiculous, and many people have been hurt during these encounters. Not to mention that many places that use tiger cubs and other young animals will often discard them once they reach the age and weight limit that the USDA requires in order Read More
