Keeper Angie Gabor’s Coordinator Report for Saturday, 1/20/18

It was a wonderful day at Big Cat Rescue!! It started a little chilly, but it turn out to be a very cool day. The cats were very active. We had lots of tours.

Thank you to all the volunteers that came in to help, we got sign off on feeding tour, operant and cleaning done.

We had to great red shirts that help prepare the diets for tomorrow.

We got a lot of little projects done. Cleaned and organized the shelves and tables in food prep, started rearranging the large freezer to be ready for a fresh delivery this week and added a new cork board to the Keeper Cafe for all volunteer related messages.

Beach Day

This Sunday the cats are having a beach day at Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s Rescue Weekend, just a minute’s walk from Clearwater beach. This special event is dedicated to highlighting the work of animal rescues from across the Tampa Bay Area area. Big Cat Rescuers are on deck exhibiting inside the aquarium’s auditorium. Nestled between the touch tank and marine hospital, Rescuers are sharing BCR’s story and mission among our seafaring friends.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is well know for their two famous cetacean residents – Winter and Hope, the stars of a Dolphin Tale 2. Although Big Cat Rescue’s residents aren’t as famous as this dynamic duo, guests to the aquarium are very enthusiastic to learn more about our resident celebrities, such as CamBu and Hoover.

Big Cat Rescue is proud to be part of the local rescue community. Together we’re working to rehabilitate local wild life, educate the public, and provide permanent shelter to animals in need.
