This Rescue facility was started by my wife Jenny and I in 2006, We Talked with other sanctuary owners and once we realized the need for a place for Big cats to live out there lives peacefully we decided to dedicate our lives to help these animals. We currently house 29 lions, tigers and Leopards at our facility. You can learn all about our facility at www.wisconsinbigcats.org . I am writing this review to let voters know that Barbara78 Is the woman who's animals were seized by Marion county in texas for not caring for them properly.(which is the reasoning for the horrible review) At which time we moved them to our facility and others so they could have a good home.. I do not hide the mistakes I made in the past (18 years ago). I am dedicated to the care of these animals as you can see by visiting our facilty.

Thanks Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue for doing the hard work that has to be done with grace and perseverance, and benefiting the big cats and community alike!

About time someone started asking questions about this one! First explain to me how a known CONVICTED FELON is allowed to own Big Cats. Imagine that a con man owns 'wild and dangerous animals' and has a 501-c-3, Now that's pretty darn funny. Someone with the IRS hasn't been doing their homework...Last year there was a serious accident there and WBCR the blame for it. Thanks for asking and getting this exposed!!!
