What is Big Cat Rescue?

Big Cat Rescue is an online activism site that gives Internet users the daily opportunity to quickly make a difference in the life of an abandoned or neglected animal at Big Cat Rescue. In less than a minute, visitors to Big Cat Rescue can click on the “Feed a Big Cat in Need” bone and, at no cost to them, provide food for an animal at the sanctuary. This food is paid for by Big Cat Rescue’s sponsors.

Care of our cats. The narrow mission of Big Cat Rescue is to provide the best permanent home we can for the abused, abandoned and retired cats in our care.  We do this by building enclosures in a very natural habitat with foliage and shelter on our 45 acre site, by providing the best nutritional and medical care possible, and by having active operant conditioning and enrichment programs to provide for their physical and psychological well being.

Education. The broader mission of the sanctuary is to reduce the number of cats that suffer the fate of abandonment and/or abuse and to encourage preservation of habitat and wildlife.  We urge people to behave in a way that will support these goals by teaching people about the plight of the cats, both in the wild and in captivity. We accomplish this through educational guided tours, educational programs for young people, and by maintaining a website that is the world’s largest and best resource for information about exotic cats.

Why are abandoned animals so important?

 

There are over 10,000 tigers in private hands across America. Thousands of them are neglected or treated cruelly. Big Cat Rescue would like to do more to save them, but we have more than 100 big cats that we have already rescued depending on us daily for food.  Your help in feeding them, generated by your clicks, enables us to do more for the cats we have not yet been able to rescue. bones

 

What happens when I click on the “Feed a Big Cat” bone? Does it cost me anything?

Two things happen when you click on the “Feed a Big Cat” bone: 1) your click is registered with our computer server and is added to the daily results; and 2) you are shown our thank you page and our site sponsors’ ads. There is absolutely no charge to you — the site’s sponsors help fund the purchase of food to feed the animals at Big Cat Rescue.

 

How will the funds be used?

Funds go to provide food and care to more than 100 rescued exotic cats at Big Cat Rescue.

bones

 

How can I be sure the animals will be cared for?

Big Cat Rescue is a not-for-profit organization with an excellent record of protecting and caring for abandoned and neglected exotic cats. Check out our Finance Page or the Annual Report to see how the money is spent.

bones

 

Why are the site sponsors willing to pay to help feed abandoned animals?

Our sponsors help pay to feed the animals as a form of advertising and public relations. For some, it is simply good advertising. For others, it is analogous to funding shows on public television or making corporate donations to other worthy causes. It allows them to get their name in front of people, to be associated with a good cause, and to generate goodwill toward their company.

bones

How do you calculate the amount of food provided by visitors’ clicks?

Your daily clicks on the “Feed a Big Cat” bone, along with other visitors’ clicks, generate funds that enable us to feed abandoned exotic cats. The amount of funding generated with each click depends on the type and structure of advertising agreements in place and the number of visitors who click. We calculate monthly feeding goals based on expected levels of support from visitors and advertisers.

The two keys to the success of Big Cat Rescue are sponsors and visitors like you. The more sponsors the site has, the more food provided with each click. The more visitors who click each day, the more we can do for abandoned animals, not only in feeding them, but also in funding our work to end the abuses that cause so many to be abandoned. So please remember to click every day!

bones

 

How much of the funds go toward food for animals?

All of the money collected from our sponsors for their banner advertisements goes to caring for the big cats.  100% of sponsor banner advertising goes to feed and care for the rescued cats at Big Cat Rescue as our administrative costs are paid from earned income from our tours.

 

bones

How much food will be provided because of my clicks?

Please see our Daily Results page for a detailed answer to this question. We have averaged 5 oz. of food of food per click since the site was started.

bones

How many times can I click on the “Feed a Big Cat” bone? Can I just keep clicking and fund hundreds of pounds of foods at once?

 

You can click once a day on the “Feed a Big Cat” bone at Big Cat Rescue. Our agreement with our sponsors only allows us to count one click, per person, per calendar day. A monitoring system is set up to check this. While you could click on the bone a hundred times, only one click would count. In the meantime, our system would be slowed down, or possibly overloaded, preventing other visitors’ clicks from generating funding for care for abandoned animals. We make every effort to count every click as fairly and accurately as possible.

Since you’re limited to one click each day, it’s important to remember to click every day. Our reminder emails can help. Another way to remember to click every day is to make Big Cat Rescue your home page. Click here to ask that your email address be added to a Yahoo Group that will send you a reminder once a day to click every day.

When does the new calendar day start?

The new calendar day starts at midnight United States Pacific Standard Time. This is 08:00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

 

bones

 

Why am I seeing cookie requests when I visit your site? Are they required?

There are two situations in which this may occur. First, some of our underwriting sponsors (whose banners are loaded from their sites, not ours) may attempt to drop cookies for tracking purposes. Second, we may drop cookies to track your click history, in order to show you how often you have clicked.

What is Big Cat Rescue’s privacy policy?

Big Cat Rescue deeply respects the privacy of its visitors. You are not required to provide any personal information to visit the site and feed an abandoned animal free of charge. If you sign up to make your clicks count more, you will be added to our monthly ezine mailing that tells you about recent rescues and ways you can get involved in saving big cats, and our extensive privacy policy is HERE.  You can opt out at the bottom of each monthly issue if you decide you don’t want to hear about big cats anymore.

bones

 

What is Big Cat Rescue’s communication policy?

Big Cat Rescue respectfully requests that people do not send unsolicited messages promoting Big Cat Rescue to people they do not know, or post inappropriately to newsgroups or in other places. We understand that this is done with good intentions. However, anything regarded as unsolicited email (spam) is not helping our cause but, in fact, is hurting it. Unsolicited email can alienate people who might otherwise visit Big Cat Rescue and help feed and care for abandoned animals.
