Lions, Tigers & Bears is San Diego's only accredited big cat & exotic animal sanctuary and rescue dedicated to the care and future of wild animals.


Lions Tigers & Bears is a federally and state licensed non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue facility dedicated to providing a safe haven for unwanted and abused exotic cats. We are one of only twelve Big Cat Sanctuaries in the US. We are a NO KILL, NO BREED, NO SELL rescue and educational facility that allows cats in our care the opportunity to live out their lives with dignity in a caring and safe environment. Our goal is to provide a safe haven to rescued cats and to educate the public about the growing population of abandoned and unwanted exotic animals and where they come from. Our primary concerns are for the health and comfort of our cats and the safety of those who share these precious natural resources. We will protect and provide these animals with a lifetime home realizing that environment, exercise, and personal attention are key to their well-being. Every attempt will be made to provide healthy diets, medical care, immunizations, and whatever else is necessary for the physical and psychological welfare of each animal in our care. In addition to our current family of cats, others in need of medical aid and rest are welcome to this facility, limited only by the extent to which we are able to provide adequate help, shelter, and safety. Our principal obligation is to our rescued cats, but we are concerned with the welfare of all captive big cats.


As you can see in the first video, rescued animals almost always require medical attention due to prolonged abuse and neglect. Watch this full medical update video of Kallie the Tiger, who endured a brutal declawing procedure so she could be used for cub petting at a roadside side zoo in Oklahoma. She has suffered so much, but with the care of our expert medical staff, she is now on the path to recovery and a life of dignity at Lions Tigers & Bears.  It's with your generous donations we are able to save the lives of majestic animals like Kallie. Thank you for your support!
