Big Cat Rescue has been named to a new list of top-rated nonprofits by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews for nonprofit organizations. The top-rated nonprofits list is composed of organizations that have received at least ten positive reviews from stakeholders, such as volunteers, donors, or clients. Big Cat Rescue received 26 five star ratings and of course the animal abusers couldn’t stand that so two of them (or one using two names) posted 1 star ratings just to be sure to skew the results. Says, Carole Baskin, Founder of Big Cat Rescue, “As always, the animal users and abusers posted some of their viciousness toward us because that is the only way they can be heard. What they don’t know is that seeing their posts just reminds us every day that our job isn’t over until all of the exotic cat abusers are shut down for good.” The reviews were posted as part of the Green Choice ’10 campaign conducted by GreatNonprofits, in partnership with Guidestar and a coalition of nonprofit organizations. “We are gratified to be able to honor Big Cat Rescue for its work on ending the abuse and trade in big cats,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. “They deserve to be recognized for the support they have from their community of stakeholders.” The success of the campaign and the diversity of organizations reviewed reflect the core of GreatNonprofits’ mission to bring visibility, transparency, and accountability to the sector and allow nonprofits to engage with their community in a different way. All reviews appear on GreatNonprofits.org as well as GuideStar.org, the premiere source for donor research on nonprofits. Nonprofits with 10 or more positive reviews during the campaign are included on the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Green Choice ’10 Nonprofits list.
For the cats,
