Carole Baskin is relocating Big Cat Rescue to a refuge in Arkansas



Little Rock, Arkansas – Big Cat Rescue’s Howard Baskin revealed on Monday that the organization would relocate from Tampa, Florida to an Arkansas sanctuary.

They are relocating to the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Preserve in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a wildlife refuge.

At the 31st annual commemoration of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in Eureka Springs next month, controversial big cat rescuer and animal rights activist Carole Baskin is scheduled to give a speech.

Baskin and her spouse Howard will be the featured performers at the exotic cat rescue’s “Feast with the Beasts” event on April 29. Baskin gained notoriety in Netflix’s “Tiger King” in 2020.

Baskin claimed that Big Cat Rescue has had three facets for the previous 30 years.

• To give the best life we could to the cats in our care.
• To stop the abuse.
• To avoid extinction of big cats in the wild.

“We want to come and join Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge in celebrating their anniversary and passage of this important legislation,” said Carole, founder of Florida’s Big Cat Rescue.

The only way to make things work for them, according to Baskin, is for Big Cat Rescue to finance the construction of the cages at Turpentine Creek, where the cats will be.
