I visited Big Cat Rescue and fell in love with the animals. The people of BCR really care and love the animals. They take excellent care of the animals. Please check their FB out and visit them when you are in the Tampa area!

After visiting BCR I have made it a goal to regularly donate (which I have been doing) and requesting others also to donate to this wonderful organization.... My tour included a knowledgeable guide who advised us on each of the cats, their conditions before coming to BCR, and how they are doing now. We were shown the minimum size of a cage mandated by law for a big cat and believe me when I say that living in something so tiny is horrifying to contemplate! The guides educate you on legislation that is in process to ban the sale and ownership of privately owned exotics. I learned so much during my visit, and I am learning much more as I go along. Please visit and support BCR and the legislation to ban sale and ownership of exotic animals!

Most of the time when big cats are kept as "pets", their fate is often the wrong end of a gun when they get loose or attack their owner. Even if a big cat is lucky enough to be rescued from these abusive and cruel conditions, there is no place for them to go. BCR gives them the best chance of a high quality life with the housing, medical care, diet, and mental stimulation they deserve. Yes, being wild would be better but these cats lost that option the moment someone decided to use them for financial gain and macho stupidity. Exotics should never be pets. At least at BCR, they will die with dignity and love. All states should be lucky enough to have a BCR facility!

Big Cat Rescue is a wonderful place for all the cats. They take in cats in need and try to rehab them and release them back in the wild where they belong. If they cannot be released they live happily at BCR and are still treated like wild animals. I love Big Cat Rescue and all who works and Volunteers there.

Big Cat Rescue is a heaven for the many precious animals they have. They set enclosures to fit the cat, as one bobcat Max who loves water, they made him a pool with waterfalls, just one example of the love they have for them. For every cat there is a story, most being sad of the lives they led before going to Big Cat Rescue, the before and after just amazes me, they go there after being in some terrible conditions, but with the Volunteers and workers at BCR these cats make a tremendous come back and live the rest of their lives without fear, without wondering if they are going to be fed or have water. Big Cat Rescue is heaven on earth for these beautiful cats!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen what Big Cat Rescue can do, I came upon them when a bobcat named Skip was hit by a car and the long process of him recovering. I know how BCR works with the cats and the love they have for each one.

Why does BCR Torture and Kill Live domestic rabbits in the name of a Sanctuary?

Please stop this barbaric unnecessary cruelty and stop pretending wild predators need taught to hunt when in fact they are born with natural killing instincts. Ethical and respectable rehabs never live feed
or take animal life because all animal life is to be respected, please learn compassionate rehab protocols and stop promoting animal cruelty.

BCR received three bobcat kittens from Alabama under a license to exhibit not a rehab license, then told the public they were to rehabbed. Now fast forward a few months later and one by one they are dying off. She writes on her BCR news letter that the first one died of Cardiomyopathy, the second from a ruptured duodenum, and the third was finally diagnosed (by a vet other than her regular one) of Panleukopenia. Pan is feline parvo, and the first two disorder of the deceased cats can be found as a complication of the disease. It was also posted on her wall that the kittens got this from being with puppies. Make no mistake, canine parvo cannot be transferred to cats and Pan cannot be transferred to dogs, besides the point that the incubation period for Pan is 3-9 DAYS not months. She then claims it is not their practice to vaccinate rehab cats for fear the vaccine would shed when in fact, exotic felidae are vaccinated with killed vaccines and she had just vaccinated a bob cat and released it a bit prior to it as well as microchipped.

The Bad Guys? Everyone that speaks out to Stop BCR is not an exotic animal owner. I find the following website very informative and factual. http://causes.worldpeacemeet.com/stoplivefeeds/shame-of-bcr/

The original post is NOT a lie, Carole Lewis Baskin did indeed purchase most of the animals at that facility, to the tune of yes over $90K. Carole Lewis Baskin cannot hide the paper trail, the truth is there in black & white, and alot of info is available on the net, for those who have concerns enough to do their own research, and not believe the lies, upon lies, upon lies that Big Cat Rescue perpetuates in order to deceive & defraud the public.

Incredibly grateful to have an organization like this helping otherwise helpless animals. Please visit, donate or, at minimum, sign petitions supporting state-level laws to ban ownership of wildlife. The cats you see here have all got sad tales of being abandoned and deserve to have as good a quality life as Big Cats Rescue can provide. They are compassionate in caring for the animals and in educating us on why Big Cats SHOULD NOT be pets.
