AdvoCat News 2011 06

In all our years of sending out a monthly AdvoCat newsletter, this is the closest I have ever come to not getting one out to our supporters. It is because of all of the trouble we are having with our website, which is still down. Until it is back up at you can check for news at We are working, literally around the clock, to get it back up and operational for you.

We Won the Toyota Tundra!

We want to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good contest. We won and should be getting our new Toyota Tundra in 3-4 months. We will let you know when and where the celebration will be held.


Speaking of parties; check out these party cougars who have all gotten together to create a 2011 calendar to benefit Big Cat Rescue We just saw some of the final picks for the calendar yesterday thanks to Kathleen Slaven and just can’t wait to see the final product. She has 18 sponsors so far and only room for 4 more so if you want to reach big cat lovers this is a great opportunity for you and helps benefit us! Meoooooowwww!

One of our new AdvoCats, Leslie Griffin, just made speaking up for the cats even easier. She took all of the cruelty in fashion alerts and turned them into one letter for you to send and reach 12 of the people doing the most harm with big cats as photo props in fashion.

She did the same thing for all of the malls who are still allowing big cat exploiters to use their venues for their pay to play schemes and it reaches 12 of the worst abusers, ALL WITH ONE LETTER. So by just sending these two letters you can reach 24 decision makers at one time to let them know why big cats and their cubs should not be used and abused this way.

Cruelty is Never in Fashion and Compassion Is Always In Fashion

Compassion Is Always In Fashion

Petting Cubs is Always Abuse: at

If you have the time, there are a few more very important alerts at to protect Lions from extinction and to end the trade in bigcat.

A big thanks to one of our younger AdvoCats who posed with toy tigers, lions and leopards to show that Compassion is Always in Fashion.

And, speaking of off site AdvoCats, our dear friend Dee just held another event for us in NJ. Here is her note after the party: “Just a quick update on the event we had last Thursday night at the library: we had a nice group of about 75 people. I posted some pictures on Facebook: We had poetry readings, music, refreshments and I spoke a little about BCR, ALDF and Tony. It was really a nice informal gathering of people coming together and discussing different animal welfare issues. FOR TONY & THE CATS – Dee DeSantis
