How Your Money is Being Spent
TAMPA, Fla. - ...The best three out of 62 bay area agencies evaluated by the respected and independent Charity Navigator are Big Cat Rescue, Special Operations Warrior Foundation and Homeless Emergency Project.
Big Cat Rescue got top marks for spending 87 percent of its revenue on programs and less than six percent on fundraising. But a big part of the rating is accountability and transparency, which includes listing board members, key staff and making their IRS form 990 available to anyone.

Kimba Tiger Update
On June 8, 2014 both of our vets came out to re evaluate Kimba the tigress, as she just isn't eating as well as Zeus and Keisha. They were deliberating over what would be the best and safest course of action for Kimba because she is 20 years old and extremely frail. We didn't think she would even make it through the rescue and transport to FL as she was so starved and depleted. Kimba would only eat a few morsels of food and then stop, so they decided to try and feed her several times a day to try and build her strength Read More

It is a stress reliever and there is plenty of stress involved in sedating a 20 year old tigress who is so thin it just breaks your heart.

UPDATE: NY Tigers Keisha, Kimba & Zeus are all settling in well at the sanctuary... Keisha is still very shy and her only den is right on the tour path (currently roped off so no large tour groups go down there) so we'll be moving her to a neighboring enclosure that's further away from future people traffic and closer to the lake.... Hopefully this will make her feel more secure. A eye specialist will be coming out to see Zeus soon... We sent her photos and video of Zeus's eye and she thinks that this may be an old injury and he is most likely Read More
