FELIDA is a FOUR PAWS rescue centre for big cats in the Dutch village of Nijeberkoop. The centre was founded approximately 20 years ago as "Stichting Pantera", but for various reasons the centre lacked maintenance for several years. In October 2013, FOUR PAWS took over the centre and started implementing necessary changes to improve the animal welfare situation. In the future FELIDA will become a transit station for big cats as well as a permanent centre for those animals that cannot be transferred anymore meeting the FOUR PAWS standards for animal welfare and safety. There are currently 2 lions, 15 tigers, a black jaguar, an African leopard and a leopard cat at FELIDA.
