Calls to Congress, THANK YOU!!

THANK YOU, to each and every one of you who stepped up for the cats an made the Calls of the Wild this past week.  Seeing the number of calls made by all of you we cannot begin to say THANK YOU loud enough but let me try…  thank you, Thank You, Thank YOU!! THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

The only way the abuse and exploitation of big cats is going to stop is to stop the roots.  YOU are key in making that happen!  Signing petitions or sending emails make people feel like they have done something to help but honestly, those things get very little attention from lawmakers.  If you want the abuse to stop you have to MAKE THE PHONE CALLS!!  Lawmakers will pay a WHOLE LOT MORE ATTENTION TO PHONE CALLS.

We do understand that making a phone call can seem scary or intimidating but really after you make that first call you will wonder what you were so afraid of!!  We do everything possible to make this as easy as possible.

The Big Cat Public Safety Act is a federal bill that would end owning big cats as pets and stop cub petting, the #1 cause of big cat abuse. You can make sure this law gets passed by contacting your members of Congress and asking them to end ownership of big cats as pets and abusive cub petting by co-sponsoring the Big Cat Public Safety Act when it is reintroduced in Congress!

The secure system at BigCatAct.com will look up who the legislators are for your area. It will look up their phone number and even dial their phone number. It will then dial your phone number and connect your call. You then only need to say ONE SENTENCE, JUST ONE SENTENCE. “Please ask your boss to co-sponsor the Big Cat Public Safety Act, HR1380.” That’s it!! What could be easier? Oh wait, maybe one thing would make it easier, you can call in the evening or on the weekend so you only have to leave a message. Now, what could be easier.

The graphic below shows the five states whose legislators received the most calls last week. If your state is not listed, PLEASE, we are asking you to step up for the cats and make that Call of the Wild.
