Helping the HelpersYou often see the stories of rescued big cats and their journeys to true sanctuaries, where they receive top-notch care and enrichment. Behind the scenes of these rescues and the daily care of these magnificent animals are hundreds of staff and volunteers who dedicate their lives to provide big cats with true sanctuary. These often behind the scenes helpers are the true heroes of these stories; but even heroes need help sometimes and a network of support. Who helps these helpers, those that take care of these rescued animals? The Big Cat Sanctuary Alliance (BSCA) does. Your generous support allows us to make great strides to eliminate the exploitation of big cats and help our members to provide quality lifetime care for wild cats in captivity.
Thanks to generous contributions from individuals like yourself, we have provided support for caregivers and advocates for big cats through:
- Continuing education through webinars and our annual conference,
- Providing a vital support network of like-minded colleagues, and
- We have built a network of advocates to be the voice for captive big cats including on the federal level – working to encourage the passage of the Big Cat Public Safety Act.
In just 5 years since our founding, the BCSA has provided so much help to the helpers in the animal sanctuary community. And yet, with your continued support, there is so much more we can do to continue helping our member organizations with the vital work that they do! Feedback from our most recent conference including: “While we all have unique experiences and challenges, we all work towards the same goal. Together, we can make good things happen”, highlights the importance of continually learning from and networking with each other.
Your gift to the BCSA will help us to continue to build these exciting programs and dramatically expand our support of the true big cat sanctuary community. Will you help us reach our goal of $2,500 by December 31st?
