Big Cats Wish List
Amazon Wish List and Amazon Smile
If you do use Amazon to purchase items for yourself (who doesn’t?) the EASIEST way you can help the cats is to sign up for Amazon Smile and choose Big Cat Rescue as your charity. Then, when you go to Amazon through your Smile account, everything is the same on Amazon but a portion of each purchase you make goes to the cats. Here is the link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/59-3330495
After you sign up at Smile.Amazon, one really easy way to purchase items we need is to visit our Amazon Wish List where you can purchase right there and have the items shipped to us. Please send us an email to tell us you purchased an item though, because when the item arrives we do not know who sent it from the shipping documents.
To donate veterinary items check out this wish list: http://bigcatrescue.org/cat-hospital-wishlist/

Other Things You Can Buy to Help:
Lunch for interns and volunteers – $200.00
Big Cat Rescue relies on more than 85 dedicated volunteers and about 50 interns from all over the world live on property for three months at a time who provide roughly 30 Full Time people in manpower hours. They work in the heat, the bugs, the rain and the cold to take care of more than 60 big cats and they do it all for free. Just like the cats; they all need to eat.
Camera Traps (often called Game cameras) $570.00
Help us track exotic cats in the wild so that we can assist in protecting much needed habitat for them. The best cameras are digital ones because the native people we have trained often do not have access to mail to send us film, but often can get to an Internet Cafe and send the images digitally. Sponsor one of these and we will copy you with the photos we get for a year.
