This year, how about giving her something really terrific that helps the big cats too?

Two Blind Bobcats Rescued
Not one, but two, blind bobcats have made their way to Big Cat Rescue this Spring.

Out with the Old in with the New
According to the National Christmas Tree Assosiation, Americans purchased a whopping 27 million Christmas trees in 2010 spending an average of $36 per tree for a grand total of $976 million! Where do all of those trees go once the holidays are over? A lot of places actually. Discarded Christmas trees are mulched for landscaping use, used whole on shorelines to prevent soil erosion, and even burned to produce electricity. Did you know that the big cats like Christmas trees? They more than like them, they love them!
3 Connecting Tunnels, 2 Enclosure Additions, and a Leopard Jungle Gym
It has been a busy month for Big Cat Rescue. As always, during the holidays, we receive many more visitors to the sanctuary, which is great because we are able to share the stories of the cats and inform the public how they can help put an end to the abuse of big cats in captivity! Big Cat Rescuers have also been very busy enhancing the lives of the cats residing at the sanctuary.
A few of the most recent projects included an enclosure addition for Purr-sistance the ocelot

The economic crunch has been felt nationwide by all and charities are no exception. In fact it is non-profits that are often affected first. When money becomes tight and every dollar counts, donating to a charity is the first budget cut for most individuals. These difficult financial times struck one particular sanctuary in Texas so hard that they were forced to declare bankruptcy
Big Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FEID 59-3330495. Florida law requires that all charities soliciting donations disclose their registration number and the percentage of your donation that goes to the cause and the amount that goes to the solicitor. We do not utilize professional solicitors, so 0% of your donation goes to a professional solicitor, 100% goes to Big Cat Rescue. Non-program expenses are funded from tour income, so 100% of your donations go to supporting the cats and stopping the abuse.
