EFRC     
    
With more than 215 exotic felines calling the EFRC home, we are one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines.  

Since its founding in 1991, the EFRC has served as a nationally recognized leader in big cat rescue, conservation and care.

 

In the past 22 years the EFRC has grown from its humble beginnings with only three exotic felines to today caring for more than 215 cats, representing nine different species.

We hope through our website you learn not only a little more about the EFRC and our work, but the plight of these majestic cats.

   TIGERS IN AMERICA   

  
Tigers in America is an organization dedicated to helping unwanted or abused tigers in this country find a home. They identify and provide financial support to the best tiger sanctuaries in this country. Their motto is “No tiger shall die in this country because he or she cannot afford to see a doctor or get a ride home.” Tigers in America has recognized the EFRC as one of the leading tiger sanctuaries in the United States.
 
What they will do:
With your donation of $500 to $5,000 Tigers in America will increase the amount by 50%.  In other words if you send a check for $500 they will add an additional $250.  There is currently no time limit on this matching donation.
 
What you need to do:
Write a check for $500 to $5,000 and make it out to Tigers in America but send it to us, Exotic Feline Rescue Center.  Once a week the checks will be sent  to Tigers in America and they will write one for us  for the donated amount plus 50 percent.

The founders of this organization visit us and all of the sanctuaries they support on a regular basis and we talk to them even more frequently.  They have made several donations to us since their founding and are dedicated to helping captive tigers.  If you have any questions about this please call us at 812-835-1130.  We are grateful for your support and theirs.
