Can Big Cat Rescue count on YOU on #GivingTuesday to help feed our 60+ exotic cats?
#GivingTuesday is just a few days away – Tuesday, November 28th! – If you’d like to donate early, our donation page is up and we would greatly appreciate early donations to help feed our exotic cats! bigcatrescue.org/give
By far the largest expense at our sanctuary is the cost for food for our exotic cats. Our annual food bill is $200,000 – that’s over $16,000 each month!
We feed our cats the highest quality, most nutritious meat we can buy in order to keep them healthy and happy. Our goal this year is to raise $64,000 on #GivingTuesday – this will feed every mouth at the sanctuary for FOUR MONTHS!
Many of our cats were rescued from horrible situations where they received poor or inadequate nutrition…if they were fed at all. Zeus and Keisha tigers came from a New York facility that stopped feeding them; they were emaciated and close to starvation when we arrived to rescue them. The “Gilligan’s Island” cats as we call them because they all have names from the television show – Gilligan, Skipper, Mary Ann, Ginger, Thurston Howell and Lovey – had been abandoned by their Kansas owner and left to starve to death before we stepped in and brought them to their forever home in Tampa. These are just some of the stories of our cats. Luckily they are now at Big Cat Rescue and, thanks to donors like you, will never know hunger again!
Not familiar with #GivingTuesday? It’s an annual campaign that takes place on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday each year and is designed to be a 24-hour global online giving event to kick off the season of giving by encouraging people to donate to their favorite non-profits.
It is only because of the financial support we receive from generous donors like you that we can continue to say YES when exotic cats need to be rescued. THANK YOU for helping us feed our precious cats. bigcatrescue.org/give
Wishing you a peaceful and happy holiday season!
