Rescue Story: In early 2023, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) was asked to take in 34 wild cats from Big Cat Rescue, an accredited Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) sanctuary in Tampa, FL. Big Cat Rescue (BCR) was founded in 1992 to safeguard the world’s exotic wildcat species. BCR championed the fight on Capitol Hill, which aided in passing the Big Cat Public Safety Act in December of 2022. With united missions, BCR and TCWR have collaborated in rescuing exotic animals nationally, and both are founding members of the Big Cat Sanctuary Alliance (BCSA). BCR has been a leader in captive wildlife advocacy for over 30 years, and with the new Act passed in Congress, its mission has shifted to focus on conservation efforts in the wild..TCWR broke ground on the new Freedom Field habitat expansion in March 2023, where Bailey and the other BCR cats will reside.
