The Big Cat Tax Break!

The clock is swiftly winding down on 2011 but Big Cat Rescue is hoping for a Happy New Year for the cats! As you count your blessings this holiday season, please consider including Big Cat Rescue as part of your season of giving.

The challenges remain daunting but the solutions are achievable….with your generous support.

Please help us continue to rescue, feed and provide a ‚Äúforever‚ÄĚ home to the magnificent creatures that cannot speak for themselves. By giving a year-end, tax-deductible gift to Big Cat Rescue today, you can help the sanctuary continue to provide the best home we can for the 100+ animals that call our sanctuary home.

Your gift will also help us continue our advocacy work of educating people that they should not support individuals and companies that exploit exotic cats or profit from animal suffering. In 2011, we made great strides in raising awareness in this country that exotic cats should not be used for entertainment and should not be bred and sold to private owners.

We offer Sponsorship Kits that allow you to sponsor a specific cat; http://www.bigcatrescue.biz/ to honor a beloved family member or pet; or donor recognition on a a permanent sign for those who contributed to our http://www.bigcatrescue.biz/.  Each of these donations make great presents and are tax deductible.
