April 9, 2013, Los Angeles, CA; Big Cat Rescue invites Republic Records recording artist Juliet Simms to Big Cat Rescue’s sanctuary located in Tampa, Florida on April 19th to honor her efforts in the fight against animal cruelty. In March, Florida-native Simms partnered with Closets for Causes, donating beloved pieces from her personal closet to be sold in an online auction with proceeds benefitting Big Cat Rescue.
“I’m humbled to have the opportunity to work with an organization like Big Cat Rescue, whose work with cats is so important to me as a massive animal lover. Cats specifically have always held a special place in my heart and life and I’m hopeful that the funds raised through our partnership with Closets for Causes will help them continue doing the great work they do!” says Juliet about her auction and upcoming visit.
“In honor of the great success of the auction and campaign, we are pleased to announce the press day at Big Cat Rescue. Juliet’s visit to the sanctuary she helped benefit will be a great moment for all parties.
The press day will be a unique chance for Juliet to interact with the staff and witness, first-hand, both the daily activities that take place at the sanctuary and the ways in which her funds are benefitting Big Cat Rescue” says Talia Bella, Founder and CEO at Closets for Causes.
Hosted by Director of Donor Appreciation Jeff Kremer, the event will see Juliet expressing her passion for helping the cats in a day filled with meet and greets and photo-ops. The generous team from Big Cat Rescue will arrange for senior animal keepers to demonstrate how they care for the magnificent creatures that call the sanctuary home.
“We are very excited to be partnering together with Ms. Juliet Simms and our wonderful friends at Closets for Causes” said Jeff Kremer, Big Cat Rescue’s Director of Donor Appreciation. “The sanctuary envisions a world where the animals we share it with are treated with compassion and respect and it is only by working ‘hand in hand’ with such like-minded friends that Big Cat Rescue is able to continue to make a positive difference in both the animal as well as human world that we share in.”
Juliet will also be honored with a commemorative ceramic donor recognition tile featuring her favorite big cat species.
Big Cat Rescue is the largest accredited sanctuary in the world dedicated entirely to abused and abandoned big cats. They are home to over 100 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts. Their dual mission is to provide the best home they can for the cats in their care and educate the public about the plight of these majestic animals, both in captivity and in the wild, to end abuse and avoid extinction.
