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.
