A project of Big Cat Rescue
Help stop the abusive trade in big cats
Did you know that the exotic pet trade causes more suffering for big cats than all of the other atrocities combined? Every week we are called upon to rescue another exotic cat because the sanctuaries are full and there is not enough money to take care of all of the rejects of the pet and entertainment industry. We take in as many as we can, but always have to consider the needs of the animals we have already committed to first.
Many people still don't know that when they pay to play with a tiger cub at the mall, or when they go to a circus, or when they go to see a baby tiger at the zoo, that they are supporting the trade in big cats that results in them being abused and abandoned when they are no longer profitable. YOU are the AdvoCAT for change and the cats are counting on you to be their voice.
Any donations in excess of the amount needed for this project will be applied to other needs for the cats.
Big Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, FEID 59-3330495. Florida law requires that all charities soliciting donations disclose their registration number and the percentage of your donation that goes to the cause and the amount that goes to the solicitor. Big Cat Rescue's registration number is CH11409. We do not utilize professional solicitors, so 0% of your donation goes to a professional solicitor, 100% goes to Big Cat Rescue. Non-program expenses are funded from tour income, so 100% of your donations go to supporting the cats and stopping the abuse.
