Tell Congress: Big Cats are not pets!

Skip to sign

Across the country, thousands of lions, tigers, cheetahs, bobcats, cougars, leopards, and other big cats are caged in private zoos, kept as pets, bred for profit, displayed for novelty, or sold for “wildlife parts.”

We must end the private ownership of big cats. It’s dangerous to owners and communities. It’s abominably cruel to the cats.

Right now, our ineffective hodgepodge of state-by-state laws doesn’t protect anyone – human or feline.

With Americans more concerned about these animals than ever before, Congress must seize the moment and at last outlaw private ownership of big cats.

Add your name to tell Congress: End private ownership of big cats, now!
