Cubs

2 Steps to Saving Big Cats and Their Cubs The Big Cat Protection & Public Safety Act died at the end of the 113th Congress in Dec. 2014, but had 120 cosponsors in the House and 6 in the Senate, so that is twice the momentum we had in the 112th Congress.  We will be reintroducing the bill in 2015 and will need your help to bring the bill across the finish line to a law that bans the private possession of big cats.  Please sign up for our monthly, AdvoCat Newsletter so that you will know when we need you to send a letter or make a call to save Read More

Andre the Tiger

Male Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11 Arthur, Andre and Amanda were born in 1996 in New Jersey to be used as pay-to-play photo props.  It never makes sense to breed more cubs to raise money to feed last year's cats, and the New Jersey facility fell into disrepair and then was shut down after USDA revoked their license following a tiger escape. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage took in the 24 tigers but big cats have big appetites and by 2010 the Wild Animal Orphanage was in bankruptcy. It took over a year to find permanent Read More
