About this book

Tucked away in the woods near Center Point, Indiana, the Exotic Feline Rescue Center currently houses about 200 rescued big cats. Lions, tigers, leopards, pumas and bobcats, as well as more obscure breeds such as caracal, serval, ocelot and lynx, have found refuge at this sanctuary.

This book contains more than 100 colour photographs of the resident big cats and each animal's story is compellingly recounted by the authors.

A stunning collection of photographs that beautifully illustrates the refuge and the large felines that call it home. The Herald-Times, praise for Saving the Big Cats
