The Big Cat Sanctuary Alliance (BCSA) was established in 2017 after four years of joint consultations. BCSA’s membership is currently comprised of 16 sanctuaries and 8 partner organizations whose shared mission is to eliminate the private ownership and commercial exploitation of big cats in the United States. Together, we speak with one voice on matters affecting big cats, including cub petting and breeding, the exotic pet trade, use of big cats for entertainment, and other areas of concern. Beyond our outreach and advocacy, all of our member entities provide necessary direct care to animals with complex social, psychological and biological needs, and we thus support the professional development of our member organizations, enabling them to network and further raise the quality of life for all the wild cats within their care.

The Big Cat Sanctuary Alliance works to eliminate exploitation of big cats and supports members in providing quality lifetime care for wild cats in captivity. BCSA works towards the day when sanctuaries are no longer needed because exploitation of wild cats has been eliminated.

Your donation directly supports our programs and helps us to advance our mission of increasing the standards of care for big cats in sanctuaries and ending the exploitation of big cats. 
From time to time, we like to acknowledge our donors in publications for our members and supporters, such as our eNewsletter, to show our appreciation for your support. If you would rather remain anonymous, please indicate so in the "Donation Message" field. Thank you!
