Review for Big Cat Rescue, Corp., Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Even though I do not live in Tampa, I have had the opportunity to visit Big Cat Rescue twice now and have loved every minute of the tours! The staff and volunteers are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. In addition, I have been a long time online follower and donor. One of the most amazing facts about Big Cat Rescue is how effectively they use the money received. The CEO/founder Carole, VP Cathleen, and Treasurer Harold collect NO COMPENSATION from BCR! (check page 7 the Form 990 for details) In addition, a vast amount of the work done at the sanctuary is done by (unpaid) volunteers. Thus, any money collected is able to go directly to helping the cats under their care and helping educate people about the plight of other "big cats". Please consider joining me in supporting this worthy organization!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly knowledgeable and friendly.

Ways to make it better...

I could have visited for one of their night or feeding tours!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

humans who continue to breed and abuse animals and imbeciles like "BCRisFAKE".
