big cats

FOUR PAWS is committed to helping lions, tigers and other big cats worldwide through direct rescues and providing species-appropriate sanctuaries. Lions are the only representatives of the big cat family to live and hunt in a pack, and are the second-largest cat. Tigers are the largest big cats and are usually solitary. Their striking striped markings make them unique – and provide surprisingly perfect camouflage in the undergrowth.    
 

the suffering of big cats and what we are doing to end it

FOUR PAWS is lobbying to alter legislation and achieve lasting change for the better. We also rescue lions and tigers kept in bad conditions in captivity.
