Big Cat Sanctuary: Non-Profit Organization for Non-Domestic Cats - East of Colorado Springs

By

Serenity Springs Big Cat Sanctuary

Just east of Colorado Springs, in Calhan, Colorado is Colorado's largest Federally Licensed placement facility for non-domestic cats: Serenity Springs. This facility has "well over 120 big cats, including lions, tigers, ligers, cougars, leopards..."
that they care for.

To help raise money for their minimal $18,000 a month costs of operation, Serenity Springs offers photo opportunities: You can get your picture taken with their baby cubs for $25. We found out about them in front of a local WalMart, where they had set up a tent with 3 of their younger cubs: Titus (above), Scar (below) and Erika (not pictured), litter-mates who had been rescued from somewhere in Eastern Oregon not too long ago.

We took a few pictures and while we were waiting for our print, it was very apparent that the folks who worked with these large cats LOVED them and took excellent care of them. But like ANY non-profit organization, they always need help. There are volunteer opportunities for anyone over 18 and they are always accepting donations.

You can also "Adopt a Cat" where you receive a picture and regular updates on the cat that you adopt. This is a monthly adoption fee of $25 - $250. Or, you can become a "Member of the Pride" which gives you even more recognition within the sanctuary.

For more information on Big Cats and how YOU can help support Big Cats of Serenity Springs, please call: 719-347-9200 or email: info@bicatsofserenitysprings.com. Check them out online: http://www.bigcatsofserenitysprings.com/

Terry- I was amazed that there was even a NEED for something like this here. But I am glad Serenity Springs exists!

Jennifer - Thank you!

Oh Mariana, Serenity Springs is just one of hundreds.  Black Beauty Ranch in Texas takes in absolutely every exotic imaginable, and Tippi Hedren (Melanie Griffith's mother) has a sanctuary in CA for big cats and retired performing animals.  www.Cheetathechimp.org takes in retired and rescued primates and monkeys.  Remeber Cheeta?  He was in the old Tarzan movies.  He's now 75 years old.  There are sanctuaries for primates and monkey's used in medical research, sanctuaries for zoo animals.  The list goes on.  Its so sad we treat animals as objects.

You can adopt a cub, but you cannot "take it home" ... they are not domesticated animals and threfore need to be in a secure environment and taken care of by competent and professional care takers and vets. Call 719-347-9200 for more info.

Hi! I live in David City NE and we have been seeing bobcat tracts.  I would like to catch and relocate the cat.  Does your organization take bobcats?
