Amazing volunteers from Big Cat Rescue recently saved a three-legged Serval from near death. Wildlife rescuers discovered the limping and dehydrated wild cat on the side of the road in the Catalina foothills of Arizona. They immediately contacted Big Cat Rescue, and the Serval was transferred to their sanctuary in Tampa, Fl.

It’s unclear how the Serval might have lost her leg, but rescuers believe she was dumped by a breeder. Servals are typically used to create trendy hybrid cats known as “Savannah” cats. However, like any wild animal, they are not meant to live in a backyard or home and make terrible pets themselves. Because of this, they are commonly dumped once they are no longer deemed useful by breeders.

“We’ll never know what kind of stress and trauma she’s been through in her old life, but we’re going to fix all of that now that she’s at Big Cat Rescue,” said Scott Lope of Big Cat Rescue. He added that she is now eating well and her body is growing healthier every day.

This poor Serval is a pertinent reminder of what happens when we breed animals to be trend pets. The fact is, Servals are native to Africa and there is no reason why they should be brought to the U.S. for the sole purpose of creating hybrid cats. This practice is especially irresponsible considering there are around 3.4 million homeless cats in shelters all across the U.S.
