Big Cat Rescue

Big Cat Rescue

5 Seasons

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s most influential sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate for ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. We are the most hated, feared, and lied about by circuses, backyard breeders, roadside zoos, cub petting pimps, and pseudo-sanctuaries because we are the most effective at ending the abuse of big cats. We wear that as a badge of honor.

While ideally these species should never have been taken from the wild, Big Cat Rescue offers the very best life possible for these animals who had previously spent most of their existence languishing in cages. UnchainedTV is showcasing these amazing videos in the hopes that people around the world rally to save these animals by condemning petting zoos, the wildlife trade, and other pipelines for cruelty.
