Giving Tuesday is December 3, 2019!
Early donations begin November 19th ~ with $25,000 match
Giving Tuesday, the annual 24-hour global online fundraising event to kick off the holiday season of giving, is Tuesday, December 3rd!
And you don’t need to wait until the big day to make a much-appreciated gift to our exotic cats at Big Cat Rescue; early online donations can be made on our secure website starting November 19th.
Giving Tuesday is one of the sanctuary's most important fundraising days of the year. The financial support we receive from generous donors like you during this campaign, which takes place each year on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is vital for our cats.
This year we are especially thankful because the first $25,000 in donations will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the generous support of the SHARE Foundation. Early donations, which begin November 19th, enjoy the opportunity for the match as well!
Our goal is to raise $125,000 to provide nutritious food and excellent veterinary care for our NINE cats rescued this year. Have you met our new cats?
Illithia is a three-year-old female serval who was a former pet. Her owners surrendered her to Big Cat Rescue in May so she can live out her life in as natural an environment as possible.
At the end of June we rescued a baby bobcat who had been injured by hunting dogs. We named him Flint and initially put him into our bobcat rehab program; but unfortunately he has bone deformities due to a disorder or malnutrition prior to arriving here. It was determined Flint is not a candidate for release back into the wild. He will live his life here at the sanctuary, where we can continue to monitor and address his special needs.
Then in September we rescued four cats from a shuttered sanctuary in California: bobcats Philmo, Shiloh and Tom Tom, and Savannah cat Mouser. All are boys except for our sweet Tom Tom. They have all settled in really well and their purrsonalities are beginning to shine!
And last but certainly not least, the three former circus tigers from Guatemala – Kimba, Max and Simba – who FINALLY arrived November 25th! It’s been a very slow process to get all of the government paperwork signed to import them into the U.S. and we are very excited to have welcomed these boys to their forever home!
We are so thankful to be able to provide a safe, healthy, peaceful home for all of our 60+ exotic cats. And we’re extremely grateful to have such amazing support from YOU, our donors! Can we count on your gift to help our precious new cats on Giving Tuesday?
THANK YOU and best wishes for a peaceful and joyous holiday season!
