Gifts That Make A Difference
January 15, 2020
Turpentine Creek is always looking for ways to improve the lives of our animal residents and create fun ways for our supporters to help them. Over the years, we have had multiple requests for personalized enrichment to send messages. In the past, we’ve accommodated those requests as much as possible, typically presented when people come to visit. But we’ve also had requests for remote enrichment.
To fulfill these requests we came up with Big Cat Callouts, personalized enrichment given to certain animals! These fun messages are usually painted on boxes and given to animals approved for box enrichment. The non-toxic paint entices the animals and creates a fun and memorable way to send a message!
The program was tentatively created a few years ago but was fully launched this past December. So far, feedback from our supporters has been amazing! Everyone loves seeing the animals enjoy enrichment. We offer different options for the messages to be delivered: in-person, Youtube video link, or live via Facebook.
The “cost” of the Big Cat Callouts ranges from $100 to $150 depending on how the callout is delivered, but all that money is put right back into the enrichment fund!
So, not only is your callout providing enrichment for your chosen animals, but it helps fund enrichment for ALL who call the Refuge home! You can make your birthday wishes, proposals, congratulations, and so much more extra special through our Big Cat Callout program!
Does a Big Cat Callout sound like something you want to do? Head over to our new Big Cat Callout page and put in your request!
*We will do our best to accommodate your request but please be aware dates or animals might not be available. Some of our animals are on enrichment restrictions, but we will email you to confirm the Big Cat Callout request and let you know if anything needs to be changed.
