Dear Friends,

This is the time of year we reflect upon all of our blessings. And right at the top of our list is you: our loyal supporters. We sincerely thank you for your continuing compassion for our big cats and generous support of our sanctuary.

Your amazing support of our sanctuary and big cats has been evident in so many ways this year. Many of you have toured Big Cat Rescue, learning first-hand about our cats and the serious issues that face captive big cats and those in the wild. Many of you have been the voices for captive big cats throughout this country by calling and writing your legislators in support of the Big Cats & Public Safety Protection Act. And thousands of you have responded to our action Alerts by contacting county fairs and other venues where big cats and cubs were exploited for entertainment and profit.

As the clock winds down on 2012 and you count your own blessings, please consider making a year-end, tax-deductible donation to Big Cat Rescue. Your donation will allow us to continue to rescue, feed and provide a forever home for our cats. It will also help us to continue our advocacy work on behalf of all captive big cats and cubs in America.

As a purr-fect thank you for donations of $100 or more, we would like to send you our 2013 wall calendar…this 13-month calendar will entertain you through January 2014 with great photos of our cats. So please enjoy 396 days of big cat joy!


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 and non-program expenses are funded from tour income, so 100% of your donations go directly to supporting the cats and stopping the abuse. We have the highest rating given by Charity Navigator. We are a 501 c 3 charity as determined by the IRS Federal ID# 59-3330495. Our 990s are available online at with a complete breakdown of how your money is spent. Please donate now!
