CURRENTLY in development: LBR is excited to be collaborating with International Fund for Animal Welfare and Greater Good for the new Bobcat Intake Building and associated costs since the August flooding. We are working on rough draft blueprints for the additional porch and exterior area prior to the anticipated delivery in a few weeks! The LBR rescues can't wait! Thanks to each of YOU for so much LOVE!We're looking forward to having the building up so we can utilize your generous GOFUNDME contributions to help complete the interior of the facility and have it functional ASAP. The current rescues and permanent sanctuary surrogates of LBR's AKP Program feel so blessed and thankful for you and the 2017 kittens and rescues will now have a home. Thank you for giving them hope. ❤️😍Big purrs!

LBR is the only bobcat species-specific rehabilitation center in Louisiana and across the southeastern US that offers long term rehabilitation. We specialize in singlet bobcat rehabilatation with our AKP ( Abandoned Bobcat Kitten Surrogacy Program) which features zoo retired, pet surrendered or non releasable bobcats, Canada lynx or smaller approved exotic felids.
Please note: It is illegal to keep bobcats as pets in the state of Louisiana. However, you may contact us to provide rehabilitation or refuge for bobcats or other smaller exotic felids.
***To keep the animals safe, the refuge is never open to the public.
*** LBR is a direct referral source from LDWF, Louisiana State Zoos, Animal Control Parish Government Offices, and Veterinary Offices for bobcats and exotic felids in need, pro bono.
Educational programs are available pro bono, at our discretion, at locations other than the refuge. However, live bobcats will never be used during a presentation.
