Big Cat Rescue, Corp.
March 1, 2012

Big Cat Rescue continues to exceed in every way. Their sanctuary rates as one of the top in the country because each and every staff member/volunteer is dedicated to the cats. Walking thru the sanctuary one gets a feeling of contented, well cared for cats. They aren't in cages, but instead large enclosures which are done as closely to their natural habitats as possible. Various enrichment "toys" are included daily to keep the animals occupied and help them exercise as well. My only regret or "complaint" is that we don't live close enough for both my husband and I to volunteer!!

THE WILDCAT SANCTUARY
January 8, 2012

TWS is the next best thing for these awesome animals. Since they cannot be returned to the wild, sending them to a sanctuary such as TWS where they can live out their lives in dignity and peace is the best alternative. They are all living in enclosures that duplicate their natural habitats. Are cared for with love and concern. Health needs are meet immediately. Enrichment is provided so the animals do not get bored or stressed. This is an awesome sanctuary.

ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
August 4, 2011

You are an awesome organization and so needed because the animals can't speak for themselves, but are now being heard by people such as you.

Thank you for roaring to Tony the Tiger and going to court for him. Hopefully you will be successful in getting him released sooner than December. But either way, all of us who have been roaring for him for so long are most grateful to you for fighting for his right to live a peaceful life instead of being an instrument for amusement and greed.

The Great!

Big Cat Rescue is a fabulous sanctuary for exotic big (and little) wild cats that have either been abused, abandoned or are retired from a circus. They have saved hundreds of these cats who enjoy their years at a sanctuary that not only gives excellent care, but lots of love personally to each animal. A high light of our visits to the west coast of Florida is always a stop to tour BCR. I always walk away in awe over how clean the facility is, how wonderful all the animals look and what an excellent staff, both paid and volunteer they have. They also do their best to rehab the bobcats that they rescue - often who have been hit by cars.

The Great!

Big Cat Rescue, Tampa, Florida is a sanctuary for over100 exotic big cats. There are 16 species of cats, many endangered or extinct now in the wild. Tigers, Lions, Leopards,Cougars, Bobcats, Lynx,Servals, Ocelots and Caracats are part of the BCR "family".
Many are there because they have been abandoned by owners who thought they would make good pets. Some have been "performers" and are now retired from performing. Others were saved from becoming fur coats and some were brought in as babies because hunters killed the mothers. BCR has educated people in an effort to stop the flow of exotic cats being kept as pets or being used as performers. They are fighting for stronger laws to protect these animals. I have learned a great deal from this awesome non-profit organization. Thanks to BCR, I am now fighting for the rights of these animals and I am most grateful to BCR for the providing a sanctuary for these magnificent big cats.

Absolutely can't think of one single change - they are awesome.
