THE BENGAL RESCUE NETWORK
TIBCS does not rescue bengals, but does promote and support The Bengal Rescue Network, which is a national organization of volunteers.
All of its members are active Bengal cat enthusiasts who truly
care about these cats' health, welfare and happiness. We hope
to ensure that NO Bengal cat roams the streets, goes hungry, sleeps
in the cold, requires attention, lacks affection or remains alone
to face an uncertain future.
Cats in the care of rescue are not usually defective in any way.
They almost always end up in rescue through no fault of their
own. An owner may become too ill to care for their pet, or may
even die. Allergies to cats can sometimes take a period of time
to develop, causing an owner to have to relinquish their beloved
pet after a period of time. Sometimes a new baby arrives, an owner
has an unexpected move overseas or across country, or got a pet
without thinking about the fifteen-year plus commitment that pet
ownership requires. In rare cases, a pet is taken in after being
ordered removed from an abuse or neglect situation.

Here is a heartwarming story about a recent rescue from Texas:
I just want to share a quick story about one of the Amazing Grace
Rescue kitties that was recently adopted out.
He is a hero and is guaranteed a home and abundant catnip for
life! Not that he was not already.
This weekend he was being a guard cat by standing at the screen
on the porch and chattering away in a very unusual fashion until
Steve, his adopted dad, came over to see what the ruckus was all
There right beside the steps was a rattlesnake. Not super large,
maybe 2 1/2 feet but just as poisonous as the big ones. Steve
promptly killed the rattlesnake and praised his kit Nico for being
the vigilant guard cat and keeping everyone safe. --- Suzi
