This week on Animal Instinct, we’re talkin’ lions and tigers! Host Celia Kutcher welcomes Susan Bass, the Director of Public Relations for Big Cat Rescue, to the show. Located on 67 acres just north of Tampa, Florida, Big Cat Rescue is one of the world’s largest sanctuaries for exotic cats and is a leading advocate in ending abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. Susan shares that, currently, Big Cat Rescue is home to about 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals, and other species, most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, or retired from performing acts. Tune in as Celia gets a behind the scenes account of this organization and its noble mission. This program has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.
