- We’re very sad to inform all of our supporters that China Doll the beautiful Queen of Big Cat Rescue is no longer with us… She called the sanctuary home since 1995 and her departure was sudden and a shock to us all. Please send your prayers to Shere Khan who lost his best friend :(

- Happy Belated Birthday to Nikita Tiger. Born 8/20/1995 Rescued 10/21/2007 Nik, short for Nikita, is a very large tiger comparable in size to the massive Shere Khan. He is very shy and spends most of his time napping by the lake. When Nik first arrived, he was very elusive and would often hide in his den when keepers approached his enclosure. Gradually he became more and more curious about the new people in his life and would peer out the doorway to the den and watch everyone very closely. He has now warmed up a great deal and is even on the Feeding Tour because he is so friendly to guests. Read More: http://ift.tt/1pW6Jsf
- Shere Khan had stopped eating and was barely taking any of his meds. We knew this day was coming, and sadly, we had to make the decision to end his suffering. His blood results in February indicated he had kidney disease. More blood was collected today to send to the lab for testing. His necropsy showed that he had advanced kidney disease and significant arthritis in his knee. Thank you to everyone for helping us to give him nearly 20 years of happiness.
