Hello, Big Cat Rescuers! 🐾

We’ve come a long way in our fight for the freedom and dignity of big cats, but the struggle is far from over. Today, we focus on an the below urgent issues that continue to tarnish our society: the abuse of big cats, particularly tigers, in circus acts. We are calling on all of you to take immediate action on our alerts by sending a sample letter to decision-makers. Here’s why your participation is vital.

The Suffering Behind the Spotlight

The circus may seem like a place of wonder and excitement, but for big cats, it’s a life of torment. Tigers and other big cats are often crammed into tiny, filthy cages and shipped from one location to another. Training methods include fear, intimidation, and sometimes physical abuse to make them perform unnatural acts. It’s an injustice that takes away the very essence of these majestic animals.
