Donations and Memberships are critical to our ability to care for the cats. We cannot exist without this financial support. But you can make a very significant difference in other important ways as well.
All animal care at Big Cat Rescue is done by volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a Big Cat Rescue Volunteer please read on for more information on the program.
We accept interns from all over the world and do not have set start dates. Start dates will be determined by the availability of the applicant and the needs of the sanctuary.
These are the actions you can take to help save the big cats. Read through the petitions and call or write your representatives now.
Big Cat Rescue would like to see ONE MILLION people pledge to live CIRCUS FREE!! We promise to make sure the politicians in Washington know that all of us who LOVE wild animals want the circus to stop exploiting them!
We are in partnership with Green and Evolve Recycling which are the leading collector and recyclers of used ink and toner cartridges and other items.

I just wanted to say that I am shocked and amazed at the number of people who will judge someone because of what they saw on a television “documentary”. I was looking through some of the comments to posts on your FB page and was literally sicked by a lot of them. Time will pass and you will get through this! My best to all at Big Cat Rescue!
I am so happy Joe Vs Carol came out. Now people can see the whole picture. Big Cat Rescue are heroes!

Someone seriously needs to end the Cat Tales “zoo” in Spokane, WA. It is the most inhumane and horrifying remnants of a 1970’s roadside attraction ever! Terribly sad, and has gone on way too long without notice or attention.

Great Cats World Park in Cave Junction Oregon
I visited it 2016. My mom and were HORRIFIED at what we saw and drove in complete silence away. We witnessed a Serval (i think) give birth, with the father cat pacing back and force less than 10 feet away in their “habitat” (a wire cage with grass). The ‘zoo keeper’ didnt know what to do. She was panicking because they didn’t even know the cat was pregnant The owner wasn’t there so they had to wait for him to drive over in an atv.. There were large cats in wire cages on dirt. Only a few cats where ‘on display’, but when you look at google maps there are far more cages than they show you. Many more.
Have you heard of this place or done any research into it? everytime i see something about big cats i think about that hellscape. maybe its different now. I hope.

Continued from my previous comment on Great Cats World Park in Cave Junction Oregon, the hellhole……….Reviews from Great Cats World Park in Cave Junction Oregon :” Y’all are going to be the next J** E****. Your cats enclosures are so small. 50 cats on 11 acres is criminal. And reading the owner say they don’t need exercise because they don’t have to hunt for food is a joke. They’re still wild animals who need to roam. Not be locked in cages for your profit. Just gross and very sad.”——
another review: “This place is a joke. None of the water troughs were filled. Multiple animals were walking back and forth out of boredom. You pay 15$ Per person to walk around and look at huge cats locked in tiny cages. The lion could barely stand. They had a beautiful lynx in a tiny cage with a branch and two empty bowls. None of the cats have shade. You can see the paths these cats walk hundreds of times on the daily. It’s so sad. This place needs shut down !!” ——- another review: “The enclosures are so small. All the animals are pacing back and forth because they have little to no room. None of them had water. Multiple animals were locked in dog kennels. If I could give negative 100 stars I would. It was so sad.”

I had no idea BCR no longer offers guided tours. Since we do not go to zoos, I traveled from PA and took my son when he was 1 and again when he was 3. He has been begging me to go back now at age 7. I went to plan a trip and schedule a tour and saw this. I never saw the documentary Tiger King or whatever it is called but can only imagine. A few of my friends who did watch it asked me if that was the place I visited, but never took the time to even watch an episode of that nonsense. This is so sad. I am happy the cats are safe though.
We continue to be closed to the general public. However, we have a limited ability to provide small private tours. Donors of $500 or more per year may schedule to come with one additional guest. Donors of $1000 or more may bring three guests with them. All guests must be at least 10 years of age. Our tour guides are vaccinated and we ask that you and any guests be vaccinated as well. If you experience any COVID symptoms in the ten days prior to your tour please contact us to reschedule. Masks are optional. Do not bring any pets with you (may seem obvious but it happens.) To schedule a visit email Howard.Baskin@BigCatRescue.org.
We can only provide in person tours to a small number of donors we have invested in ramping up our virtual options, such as our LIVE webcams where you can view the cats live and chat with people who love big cats. Our cameras are at https://bigcatrescue.org/cams/ and see our virtual options at BigCatRescue.org/VR
