Emergencies

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES   http://youtu.be/9OIRZbBZFuU   Rule # 1 : STAY CALM . Detach yourself from the drama and become the hired professional brought in to remedy the situation.

Hiring the Dream Team We Didn't Think We Could Afford   Big Cat Rescue runs as sleekly as our cats and we are able to keep our fundraising and administrative costs well under 20% (usually more like 11-15%) by utilizing volunteer manpower.  We have never had any trouble attracting the best and brightest in the animal care world to make sure our cages are cleaned daily and that our cats always get top notch care but, like most animal operations, we do not tend to attract huge teams of customer care experts.   Don't get me wrong; Read More
