State of the art health care now includes genome sequencing of the DNA from all the chromosomes in the body. Cats should have the same health care opportunities as any other species! DNA sequencing allows the identification of all the variation that makes a cat different from any other species and each cat unique in the world. For many individual birth defects or inherited conditions that affect health later in life, responsible DNA variations can now be identified in any individual cat! Tens of thousands of humans have had full genome sequencing for their health care, hundreds of dogs, but only one cat – Cinnamon, an Abyssinian from the University of Missouri! Help make genome sequencing the standard of health care for cats! NYDIVINEDOLLS is currently a recurring donor for the study, identification of genetic predisposition, and prevention of uterine/renal aplasia in Ragdolls.

Did you know that monthly giving is an incredibly efficient way to support the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)? ASPCA Guardians are a group of dedicated friends of the organization who provide a consistent, reliable income stream through monthly gifts. This allows the ASPCA to focus more resources on their lifesaving programs, and less on raising the necessary funds. Members like it because it is easy to budget—and because it feels great to be making a difference for animals every month of the year!

The Most Important Thing YOU Can Do to Save Big Cats…This bill called the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation to ever be introduced to protect lions, tigers, and other exotic wild cats from being kept as pets and in miserable roadside zoos. It ended the 113th Congressional session with more than 120 co sponsors. Now, we are working to re-introduce the bill. Check out the Most Recent Mews-Letter.

Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. We are home to about 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts. NYDIVINEDOLLS currently sponsors a beautiful female tigress, Amanda, who was born in 1996 and was rescued from a bankrupt sanctuary.
