Introducing Big Cat Rescue
Big Cat Rescue is a non profit educational sanctuary located in Florida. They are devoted to rescuing and providing a permanent home for exotic (i.e. wild, not domestic) cats who have been abused, abandoned, bred to be pets, retired from performing acts, or saved from being slaughtered for fur coats, and to educating the public about these animals and the issues facing them in captivity and in the wild.
The Big Cat Rescue's sanctuary houses the most diverse population of exotic cats in the world, with 14 of the 35 species of wild cat represented among more than 100 residents. These include tigers, lions, leopards, cougars, bobcats, lynx, ocelots, servals, caracals and others, many of whom are threatened, endangered, or now extinct in the wild.

Big Cat Rescue is devoted to rescuing and housing exotic cats who have been abused, abandoned, bred to be pets, retired from performing acts, or saved from becoming fur coats, and to educating the public about them.
Big Cat Rescue provides the best home they can for the animals in their care and to reduce the number of cats that suffer the fate of abuse, abandonment or extinction by teaching people about the plight of the cats, both in the wild and in captivity, and how they can help through their behavior and support of better laws to protect the cats.
Big Cat Rescue also helps pets
Helping other animals in the community
"While rescuing big cats is our main objective, we help support many animal charities by donating free tickets and experiences to their fundraisers and we offer a Spay and Play program whereby anyone who has their pet altered, or who adopts one that is altered, can bring us a copy of the receipt and get a free $25. tour."
