In 2010, G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Foundation and Schreibvogel created Big Cat Rescue Entertainment Group, Inc., referred to as Big Cat Rescue Entertainment. , a critic of the park's practices, filed suit against them, claiming the name and logo similarities were used to damage their reputation and cause confusion. The defendants counter-claimed, stating that Big Cat Rescue had caused them financial loss. In February 2013, a judge rejected the counter-claim and Schreibvogel agreed to a of approximately 1 million dollars. The park filed for bankruptcy and remained open to the public. A new park, The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Foundation, was incorporated shortly after the suit. The entity G.W. Exotic Animal Memorial Foundation was dissolved and its assets, but not liabilities, were transferred to The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Foundation. Big Cat Rescue again filed suit on the premise that the new park was a successor to the first park and had the same personnel, income, assets, property, and overall business. In 2016, The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Foundation was determined liable and ordered to pay $1,028,000 USD and interest.
This "sanctuary" is only that in the owner's eyes. They pocket 80% of the donations. The money certainly doesn't go toward animal caging or care. In November, 2014, Big Cat Rescue, Corp received 77 Violations of the Animal Welfare Act in ONE visit!! Don't believe me, read the report here complete with photos of their deplorable, rusty, weed-choked caging!!

Our trusted service makes sure your vehicle is properly handled so you get your tax deduction and your charity, Big Cat Rescue Corp, gets the benefit of your donation. Big Cat Rescue's original was filed when they were still known as Wildlife on Easy Street. It shows that while they claim they became a sanctuary in 1993 they actually incorporated for the purpose of breeding their cats which lasted from 1992 until 2001.Big Cat Rescue Corp is serious about saving endangered, abused, neglected, and lost big cats. They find every way to raise money to help feed them and care for them and I find them as a great and nurturing charity.On their own website Big Cat Rescue says, "Big Cat Rescue offers a unique venue for corporate meetings, offsites, mixers and parties as well as personal parties like birthdays, anniversaries, bridal showers or weddings."Where are the lies? How can Project Icarus say the skulls and skins are for learning when Big Cat Rescue promotes their party room as a place to be rented out for parties, weddings, and corporate meetings? If the pelts and skulls of their cats were meant for education why are they not part of the tour? Most importantly, what happened to the rest of the cat's body parts?We have not provided you with any goods or services in exchange for this donation.
