Established in 2008
Big Cat Rescue is one of the largest accredited sanctuaries in the world dedicated to abused and abandoned big cats. Our mission is to provide the best home we can for the cats in our care, end abuse of big cats in captivity and prevent extinction of big cats in the wild.
What sets Big Cat Rescue apart is that we are working to end the abuse at its root by ending the private possession and trade in exotic cats through legislation, education and exposing those who mistreat these magnificent animals. Your donations help us provide outstanding care for the cats we house like Simba, the tiger pictured here, who was rescued from a horribly abusive circus. Those donations also help us carry on the fight to stop the abuse of the thousands more than we can house who are being mistreated in captivity.
