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. 

 

  Thank-you to our generous donors!
We now have the pick-up truck we desperately needed.
We couldn’t do this without your support!
