When deciding what organization our family wanted to donate a portion of our profits to, we came across Big Cat Rescue and fell in love. We looked over their social media pages and saw that the rescue makes it a priority to involve the community in spreading the word of saving the Big Cat Species from trade and abuse.
Let's jump right into it.
Who is Big Cat Rescue?
Big Cat Rescue is one of the largest accredited sanctuaries in the world dedicated to abused and abandoned big cats.
How Many Cats do they Shelter?
They home about 80+ lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species. Most of whom have been:
- Abandoned by owners who wrongly thought they would make good pets.
- Abused by owners in order to force them to perform.
- Retired from performing acts.
- Saved from being slaughtered to make fur coats.
- Rescued as babies after hunters killed their mothers.
What do they do?
Big Cat Rescue’s mission is to provide the best home they can for the cats in their care, end abuse of big cats in captivity and prevent extinction of big cats in the wild.
