Coordinator Report

Great Day today! Got a lot of projects done. We got Hoover in the roof section unexpectedly so we did a quick mow and weed-eat. He also ate 6 lbs today!

Priya, Manny, and Andre got pumpkins for the media today, we had several stations come out to film.

We also started Priya’s cage so it will be done for when she comes home. An ongoing project today was the tour path. Everyone is doing a great job trimming and raking so it looks good for the upcoming Walkabout.

Reise Cougar is back in the outside hospital cage. She is recovering well.

Cameron Lion got a whole turkey, he ate 7 lbs and let us get the leftovers so he and Zabu could go back together.

That’s it for me!

Facebook Fundraiser

Please know, that here at Big Cat Rescue we make sure that donated funds are used JUST for the cats care.  Staff salaries and non-cat-care expenses NEVER come out of public donations.  Because we strictly adhere to that policy we have been able to earn the highest ratings given by Charity Navigator several years in a row.

THANK YOU for doing those Facebook Fundraisers!  Your efforts truly made a difference!!!

If you have not done a Facebook Fundraiser before it is really easy and does not cost you anything.  Learn about this and see screenshots at https://bigcatrescue.org/facebook-fundraiser/
