Meet Our Married Volunteers 2009

Volunteer “Spot” Light

 

Volunteer- to do charitable or helpful work without receiving pay for it.

 

This is the definition of volunteer. What the definition does not include is passion, commitment, loyalty and an absolute love for what you do. This is the definition of a Big Cat Rescue Volunteer.

 

We have over 100 people who volunteer in different capacities. They clean enclosures, rake, landscape, paint, give tours, help in our gift shop, write letters to help change laws, educate the public about animals in the wild and in captivity, – all this, while keeping our guests comfortable and happy. I would like you to meet some of our volunteers who commit their time and energy to Big Cat Rescue. How many married couples do you know, who share the same passion and volunteer together?
