A Safe Home for Endangered Big Cats at Panther Ridge

Part habitat, part haven, part labor of feline love, the Panther Ridge Conservation Center is above all else a home for some of the world’s most beautiful and endangered big cats. We are nestled among the horse farms and estates of Wellington, Florida, near Palm Beach. Panther Ridge is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit institution that provides a lifelong home and superior care for exotic felines that have been abandoned, abused or neglected. Panther Ridge also provides hope — in the form of public education concerning the challenges these animals face in the wild,

the problems related to private ownership of exotic big cats, as well as about programs around the world that try to help re-establish their populations. We collaborate with, and help raise money for, other organizations around the world that run cooperative captive breeding programs, conservation projects, and reintroduction programs. These are the foundation upon which the re-population of endangered feline species will be based.

Mateo says is it Friday yet?
The holidays may be over but don't forget that we offer gift certificates and cat "adoptions" all year round!
Ming Too loves to play with enrichment! Enrichment is important for all our animals here at Panther Ridge. It keeps their minds and bodies active and healthy!
Macho Man Monday!
Each ocelot has a unique coat pattern and coloration that is specific to each individual. Macho here has a handsome golden color to him don't you think?
Charlie our Cheetah, is one of eight different species that call Panther Ridge home! Can you name all eight species?
What cougar? We don't see a cougar anywhere...
Flashback friday to a much younger meeka and mateo!

Meeka weighs in at 110lbs now and Mateo is 130lbs! They grow so fast
It may be Winter here in Florida but Mateo is still thinking about dragging all of his toys into the pool with him!
Nuri absolutely loved her Christmas tree!
Thank you to those of you who donated your trees to our cats!
When your food is 5 feet away but you're too comfortable to get it.
Fun fact: my wild ocelot friends have to hunt for their own food including rabbits, rodents, fish and sometimes frogs!
