Common house cats are overrated. Still, there’s a lot of people looking out for their best interest. Both Sarah Mclachlan and the ASPCA look out for the common house cat. But, what about the other, infinitely more awesome cats of the world? Who’s looking out for them?
The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation, that’s who. And, when you get a gander at the big daddy fat cats they have roaming their reservation, you’ll forget all about those furry, calculating lil’ shit-monsters back home. Co-presidents Eduardo Serio and Rachel Brandt formed the foundation back in 2013, after rescuing an orphaned black panther cub from a truly miserable future, similar to the one Liam Neeson’s daughter was heading towards in the movie Taken.
Overall, their goal is to raise awareness regarding the care of the environment and that of the innocent creatures endangered by human activity, but, more specifically, it’s to “rescue Big Cats from sad circumstances and provide them with the best lifestyle available.” To some, that might sound just as depressing as Mclachlan’s “Angel” playing behind images of abused animals, but actually, the Foundation’s website/Instagram page is chock-full of impossibly adorable pics and vids that are sure to get you your feline-fix (you know, without the sadness).
What’d I tell you?
With the help of devoted friends, Eduardo has rescued tens of felines, and counting, from a life of captivity and exploitation in circuses, zoos, and cartels.
The Foundation is constantly updating its Instagram page with new content, which already consists of literally thousands of images to sift through.
Even prominent names like Kellan Lutz, Kate Walsh, Paris Hilton, and The Backstreet Boys have flocked to Mexico, where the facility is located, to kick it with these guys.
Yes, that is Lance Bass.
Although their focus is on rescuing Big Cats from bad circumstances, all animals are welcome at The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation. And, while they're limited in capacity, the Foundation hopes to expand their reservation soon in order to accommodate more wildlife.
