"Your Donation Makes a Roaring Difference"


Jeff & Jenny Kozlowski established "Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue" in March of 2005.


We have been working with big cats for about 9 years, and have had our own since 2002. We are licensed by the USDA as a rescue and educational center and are also a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. In the beginning, we thought 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. So, we stopped the picture taking immediately and started doing some investigating on what actually goes on during this photo business, as well as what happens to the animals afterwards.


Our findings were disgusting. We then contacted rescues around the U.S. and our findings were even worse about the abuse of these animals. It was then decided that our goal in life will be to give what we can and help these majestic creatures as much as possible. (read more)

Did you know... Lions and Tigers have two tiny openings called a jacobson's organ on the roof of the mouth(to help them smell). By opening their mouths wide, the cats allow the scent to be identified when it enters the brain.
