Age: 7 year(s), 11 month(s)

Lenny came to us on 08/30/06 and was brought to us by transfered from another shelter that was once someones pet.

  Lenny is a love when you take the time to give him the attention that he needs. He was a confiscation case. Once removed from his home and family, Lenny spent months in a humane society, which as you can guess, is completely unsuited to housing a bobcat.[...]

Bobcats: A year round commitment!

It's always baby season with bobcats!  Here, in Texas, they breed year round.  As the babies continue to pour in, the food, baby formula, and vaccines flood out. This year will mark over 400 bobcats through our facility since our doors opened in 2008, with a guarantee of many more to come.  With our rapidly growing reputation, these cats are coming to us from all over the United States. Some of them are on the verge of death or gravely injured, while others just in a temporary shelter for assistance with relocation due to frightened misguided people who are trapping And removing them from their homes. One of our main objects at NBRR is to provide the general public with education about bobcats and why they have moved into our cities.  Before deciding to remove a bobcat from your property, please contact NBRR for advice and assistance with your situation

Please help us! Become a bobcat hero and make a one time donation, monthly donation or provide us with supplies from our wish list. All money and supplies go to the upkeep of these animals from the time they get here until the time they are released and are all tax deductible. Please consider us when trying to decide which charities you will donate to this year. Take a moment to browse our photo gallery or one of the many profiles we've made for some of our most honored guests while you decide.

Thank You,

NBRR Staff

“Cheeze”                         Did we spell it wrong?  No, Cheeze was originally a “Q” in the alphabet, so he was initially named “Queso”.   He was such a unique cat and his name just didn’t fit him. He was so funny and such a ham, that […]

Bridgette Bridgette came to us in 2008. Her family surrendered their “pet” to us at four months of age. Once they discovered that wild animals can act aggressive at a drop of a hat, especially with those who are not trained in animal behavior, they made the decision to bring her to a facility that […]

Braelyn Braelyn is our most recent intake.  She is VERY sick.  She came to us about a week ago from a ranch where they have been “removing all big cats from the property”.  We hate to hear things like this, because Bobcats should never be considered “Big Cats”, at least not down here in Texas.  […]
