We are striving to see the end of the big cat and bear trade within our lifetime

Allowing these magnificent animals to enjoy life without fear, abuse, abandonment, or neglect; letting them be the wild animals they were truly meant to be. Through education, advocacy, and quality care for our current rescues, we are making strides in changing the mindset of a nation.

Our rescued animals need help year round, and on this day of giving, you can provide special support

Great strides have been made towards providing a better future for big cats in captivity. In 2021 alone:

  •  – Several well-known animal abusers have been brought to justice.
  • – The Big Cat Public Safety Act is positioned better than ever before to pass.
  • – 16 animals have found sanctuary at TCWR.

Your support is important now more than ever. YOU are the backbone of the education, advocacy, and rescues that combat the Trade. Together, we can #GiveJustice to countless animals who have always deserved better.

During this time, our visitation rates drastically drop, and we rely heavily on the generosity of our supporters.

How can you help? Donate $5, $10, $100, every little bit helps.

More ways to give

Just can’t help for Giving Tuesday, that is ok! Sharing helps a lot, so does spreading the word. BUT there are other ways you can help the Refuge too!

Double your donation

When you go to donate, please make sure that you follow through with our Double Your Donations system! Put in your employer’s information and our system automatically checks to see if they will match donations and the criteria for matches!


Share social media, blog posts, this page, emails, in general – just tell everyone you know about TCWR and Giving Tuesday!


Can’t donate? You can start your own Giving Tuesday fundraiser for TCWR (through Facebook) then encourage your friends and family to help! Set a personal goal and see how close you can get to your goal (or how much you can exceed it!)


 Create an event (either online or in-person) to encourage people to participate in Giving Tuesday! A watch party that keeps track of how close we are to a goal could be a fun get together for a Tuesday!
