If you will be attending the 2014 Taking Action for Animals, you could win!  As the Diamond Sponsor, Big Cat Rescue would like to reward you for taking action to protect exotic cats by offering the chance to win a new IPAD MINI OR ANDROID TABLET.

Here is how to play:

CALL your federal Representative or Senator, ask them to “Co Sponsor the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act HR 1998 and S1381” and then write down who you called, the number you called, if you spoke with a real person or left voicemail (both count) and what, if anything they said. Usually they just say, “Thank you, I’ll let my boss know.”

Then come by Big Cat Rescue’s booth and give us your written notes, along with a way to contact you if you win.

On Tuesday, after we get back to Tampa we will draw a winner for the new IPAD MINI OR ANDROID TABLET from the notes for the grand prize and some other prizes too and notify those who won.  We will post the winners on Facebook too, so you can check there on Tuesday.

Not many people are bold enough to pick up the phone and ask their representative in Washington to take action, even though it’s their job to represent you, so your odds of winning are pretty good, if you make the call and report on it to us.

All of the info you need to make the call; even your lawmaker’s phone numbers, are in your bright green bag that you get when you sign in at the registration desk.  

If you don’t get a bag, here is online access to the stuff you will need:

Here are some tips to make it easy for you to find your lawmaker’s phone number and what to say.

Go here and find your lawmaker by your zip code: http://BigCatRescue.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=14d45892fb6443d02d58be9bf&id=46b6f19697&e=e8f28c28e2

The first group will be your Federal Officials.  You will have 2 Senators and 1 Representative.  You need to call at least one, but you can enter 3 times if you call all 3.  You can call the home office or the capitol office, but the capitol office is better.

We would love to have you attend our Special Session on Saturday or Sunday at 1:00 pm, in the balcony over the Exhibit Hall, to learn more about the issues facing big cats.

You must call your federal legislator (not email) and must turn in your report to the Big Cat Rescue booth in the exhibit hall to qualify.  Good luck!
