Big Cat Rescue receives literally hundreds of calls about big cats that need a home each year and it is really hard to turn them away.
Unfortunately we can only agree to rescue a few cats each year due to lack of funds and the space required to build more enclosures. We realize that the best way to make the most impact and help as many animals as we can is to attend meetings and speak up against the private owners and people who breed/exploit captive animals to make a living.
A group of Big Cat Rescue staff and volunteers recently attended the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Captive Wildlife Workshop in Kissimmee, weds 25th Feb 2009. As you can see from the video we were really out numbered and we really need more florida residents who care about animal welfare to join us at the next meeting and speak out on behalf of the animals.
If you would like to help us and the animals please take a few minutes to e-mail your comments to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at: rulechanges@MyFWC.com or comments can be mailed to this address:
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Attn. Capt. Linda Harrison, 620 S. Meridian Street, Tallahassee, FL 32399-1600.
