Charity Navigator just today published their most recent rating of us. Not only did we get our 7th four star rating in a row, but a numerical score of 100%!
(4 stars is their highest rating)
Did You Know? Here at Big Cat Rescue, literally 100% of your donations are spent directly ON THE CATS!!! We are able to adhere to that strict policy because the other sanctuary expenses, administrative expenses, salaries etc come out of tour fees and other sources of income. We are extremely serious about donations being used JUST FOR THE CATS!
Because of adhering to that strict policy regarding donations, and all of the other ways Big Cat Rescue is transparent in our operations, we have earned Charity Navigator‘s highest 4-star rating for “sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency” EVERY YEAR since we were first evaluated by them in 2010.
Please vote for our intern Aleesa’s video — you can vote ONCE PER DAY until December 7th! Big Cat Rescue has the chance to win up to $10,000 for the cats!!
VOTE HERE: VoteCats.com We started a couple weeks late, will you help us catch up?
Carole & Howard recently got back from a conference in New York learning how to better use Facebook as an outreach tool. They are right in the front row. Outreach is a very important part of what Big Cat Rescue does. Reaching more people with the plight of big cats both in captivity and in the wild is extremely important. Change begins with education.
Many of you ask, especially after watching our big cats eat whole turkeys, if the big cats eat bones. Watch and find out!! BigCatTV.com
Jamie Veronica: Geronimo is doing well and has doubled in size.
Keeper Afton: I just love Zeus and his gentle soul. It might sound crazy, but if I need to talk or someone to calm me down, I go and sit with him. His presence always makes everything better!
Keeper Michael Heap: Zabu wasn’t feeling it for tours today… (Nov 27th)
Keeper Mark Mira: Chaos is a shy caracal but she does enjoy her new enclosure here @bigcatrescue
