Big cats were never intended to be pets, as that term is commonly used, and often attempting that endeavor ends in tragedy for either the owner, the cat, or both.

PrideRock - Wild About You"Big cats are not pets"

The PrideRock Mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by keeping a solemn promise we make to each animal that is accepted, that this will be their final and permanent home for the remainder of their lives. A commitment that has long term economic and personal implications. Then as part of the mission, PrideRock Wildlife Refuge creates species-appropriate enclosures with enrichment and recreational areas for its residents, with each animal being given specific diets and nutritional provisions as well as veterinary care. This enables PrideRock to provide many educational opportunities for the public, such as summer internships for college students, a platform for the implementation of projects by groups such as the Boy Scouts, Wildlife Society members, and volunteers in general who spread the word about the plight of exotic animals in captivity.


A Dream Come True...

"I think PrideRock has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. I remember my parents taking me to zoos and I would sneak away and sit in front of the lions and tigers in awe, watching them pace back and forth in front of me probably knowing how much they impressed me. I loved them then and I love them now and all my dreams have come true. Our story begins in 1992, in Terrell, Texas... The work is hard and the days are long, but we are blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity to share our lives with these big cats."
