Rescues & Sanctuaries

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened

Anatole France

Diablo Guapo (1996-2015)

This black Jaguar was rescued by Wildcat Santuary in 2006 and lived the rest of his days as close to freedom as possible. He passed in December of 2015, a day I will never forget. You can view his memorial slideshow on the Wildcat Sanctuary website.

It is with permission from Wildcat Sanctuary that I use his image on my website and business cards.

Wildcat Sanctuary is a non-profit organization based out of Minnesota, U.S. They home over 100 different big cat species, often working with other organizations to help bring abused and suffering cats to a home where they can live as free as possible. They recently rescued several lions from South America. You can visit their website here:

Please be aware of “rescues” that advertise selfies with their animals. Wild animals are not pets or for human entertainment and need to be treated with respect. Please visit Wildcat Sanctuary or Big Cat Rescue’s page for articles on the importance of no human contact for purposes other than medical attention.
