Sanctuaries, Rescue, and Adoption
Supporting an exotic cat sanctuary is a wonderful way to help these animals. But you may wish to be aware of the sanctuary's political agenda before sending a check - many sanctuaries lobby against the right to own exotic pets. Consider giving your money to a sanctuary whose true motivation is purely to help exotics in need.
Wild About Cats This is the only wild feline sancuary I know of that does adoptions, acting as a middleman to place unwanted cats in suitable homes. Most sanctuaries simply take in animals and keep them permanently. They sell a wild feline husbandry manual, and have some good information (primarily geared towards larger felines) on their site.

Original quote from Independance Day:
The President: "Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it is fate that today is the fourth of July and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist! And should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!"
