in the wild. Just ten years
ago there were closer to 50,000.

Jeff Kozlowski & Jenny Meyer established "Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue" in March of 2005.
We have been working with big cats for about 8 years, and have had our own since 2002. We are licensed by the USDA as a rescue and educational center. We are also a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We started out by thinking that if you take pictures with these animals, it would make a lot of money, which it did for the first two months... We made about $200-$300 per hour. Then We realized all the stress it causes the animal was too much. We stopped the picture taking and started doing some investigating on what actually goes on during this photo business, as well as what happens to the animals afterwards.
My findings were disgusting. We then contacted rescues around the U.S. and our findings were even worse about the abuse of these animals. We then decided our goal in life will be to give what we can and help these majestic creatures as much as possible. (read more)
