The Rescue of Maya Cougar by Big Cat Rescue

The Rescue of Maya Cougar by Big Cat Rescue
A Forever Home for the Holidays

We are excited to share with you that a team of Big Cat Rescuers is right now driving from Ohio back to our sanctuary in Tampa with a female cougar named Mya!

She is 18 years old (which equates to about 100 in human years) and was voluntarily surrendered by her owner to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Not many elderly captive big cats ever have the opportunity for a second chance and a brand new life at an accredited sanctuary. Mya is scheduled to arrive at Big Cat Rescue this week, so she will be home for the holidays.

We plan to spoil her and give her the best veterinary care and nutrition possible. She’s going to live in a big enclosure next to Reise, another elderly female cougar. Big Cat Rescue volunteers are already preparing new toys and a platform in her enclosure.

Will you help us welcome Mya to her forever home and donate to her care?

The rescue team arrived back at Big Cat Rescue at 5AM after a 20 hour trip. Two hours of sleep and then the press arrived to see Maya being released into her new quadraplex.
