Happy Boxing Day!


Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their bosses[1] or employers. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday that generally takes place on 26 December. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and some other Commonwealth nations.

In South Africa, Boxing Day was renamed Day of Goodwill in 1994. In Ireland and Italy, the day is known as St. Stephen’s Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Stiofáin) or the Day of the Wren (Irish: Lá an Dreoilín). In many European countries, including notably Germany, Poland, Scandinavia and the Netherlands, 26 December is celebrated as the Second Christmas Day.

Make it Stop!



Our neighbor’s kids began shooting paintballs at our cats when they were 12.  With your help we spent thousands of dollars to put up a wall to protect the cats.  Now they shoot shotguns and rifles next to the cats for hours at a time, almost every day.  Surely there is some sort of noise abatement law in Hillsborough County that can make them stop.  Your donations can help us buy up the land around us to stop this harassment.

Even though Big Cat Rescue is closed on Thanksgiving, our volunteers still come in to feed and clean the cats.



Join us for the Haunted Trail on Growl-O-Ween




Tired of the same old theme parks? Obnoxious crowds, packed parking lots, long lines—you know what I’m talking about.

Want a more intimate scare this Halloween?

Then join Big Cat Rescue Friday, October 25 for Growl-O-Ween, an after dark spooky night tour that ends up along the Haunted Trail, if you’re brave enough to walk past the glowing eyes, roaring of tigers, screaming of cougars as our nocturnal hunters show you this is their time.  Then you reach the Haunted Trail and the fear really begins.


It’s an after dark experience that’ll make your hair stand on end.

Growl-O-Ween at Big Cat Rescue, Friday, October 25. Reservations and pre-payment required.  Space is limited.  $55 per person.

Ages 10 and older only.  No costumes allowed.  Please do not consume alcohol before the tour or you’ll be refused admission.

Avoid the hassles of the big theme parks and brave Growl-O-Ween, Big Cat Rescue’s Haunted Trail.

This is a one night event and there are only 2 set tour times, so reserve your spots now if you don’t want to miss out.

The reservations will be for either the 8PM or the 8:30PM Night Tour on Oct. 25, 2013 ONLY here:
