The cats couldn’t be here today.


But they wanted to tell you a little about themselves


So that you can be their voice.


Exotic cats don’t make good pets!


Discarded like thousands because people want to see WHITE tigers.


Rescued from an animal testing laboratory


Spent early years chained to a concrete slab by a drug dealer


Rescued with her harness imbedded into her raw skin


Abandoned by her owner. Dead if not for Big Cat Rescue


Breeders said she would make a good pet – they lied!


Sold at auction, age 5 weeks


Kept in a basement without seeing sunlight for over a year.


Should I be bred for life in a cage?


Refugees of Desert Storm


Sold at auction as a tiny cub. So sick he almost didn’t make the trip to Big Cat Rescue.


Unwanted because there are too many males for breeding


Left for dead


Bought as pet, then abandoned


Rescued from sale as a pet


Stuffed in a carrier 1st 4 mos.


Used in circus for photos with paying customers until he started biting them


Abandoned when owners divorced


Brought to Big Cat Rescue in a crab trap because he tried to kill the infant he had been raised with for the past 3 years.


Rescued from becoming a fur coat


Her owner went to prison‌ leaving her homeless


Seized in a drug raid


Retired from the circus


His owner died, leaving no provision for this cat’s life


Zoo surplus


Taken from their mother to be sold as pets that will be discarded next year


Rescued from a game farm where animals are raised to be shot for a fee


Came from a broker with broken legs from poor nutrition


Maimed for life at a drive thru safari park


Bought to impress a millionaire’s friends and discarded like yesterday’s paper


Left at our gate with no note


Cross eyed and lame she was unwanted


All White Tigers are inbred causing severe birth defects


Extinct in the wild


Has no upper lip due to the inbreeding required to make a white tiger.


Your help provides more than just food and shelter.


Hunted for sport in the U.S.


Retired from the circus


Why is the King of Beast behind bars?


Denied protected status by the U.S. that could have saved her from extinction


Kept in a corn crib for six years at a road side zoo; nothing to do but walk in circles.


Help Big Cat Rescue speak out for her.


Designed to patrol and defend 400 square miles but kept in a box. Tigers were never meant to live in cages.


People breed lions and tigers to create 800 lb “ligers� in order to circumvent laws that prohibit owning lions or tigers.


85% of the big cats abandoned were formerly pets


Most of the cats who end up abused and un wanted are tigers


In China Today Tigers are Farmed


Used for Tonics & Potions


As of 10/4/07 3,739 people have signed our electronic petition to stop tiger farming.
