Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary is a non-profit safe haven for big cats, bears, and native wildlife. World-renowned educator and behaviorist Kay Rosaire and her son Clayton present training demonstrations with their rescued big cats in an educational forum. During the demonstrations they gently encourage the cats to show off their magnificent natural behaviors. You will be enthralled and entertained by these majestic animals as they demonstrate their characteristic athletic ability and unique individual personalities.

Volunteers are also a critical part of the support of the sanctuary. We need people with all types of skills. You can contribute to the expansion of the habitat and ongoing care for the animals by contributing in the following ways:
    •    Intermittent donations
    •    Monthly sponsorship of the animal of your choice
    •    Planned giving
    •    Volunteering your unique skills
Come join our big cat family! Your donations are tax deductible. The sanctuary is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization; EIN #65-0659177. To donate, volunteer, or attend to our wish list, contact us
