Calico Racing is proud to announce the selection of Big Cat Rescue to be our featured non-profit organization. With a name like Calico Racing, it should come as no surprise that I have a huge affinity toward BIG CATS (and domestic ones!) Big Cat Rescue serves a dual purpose, to educate the public and to care for and house rescued cats from abuse to include inbreeding, loss of habitat and extinction, circus acts, fur & pet trade.

CLICK ON the picture above to check out the You Tube video of Canyon, the Sandcat. He is the cats meow of “little cats” at Big Cat Rescue. Notice the Calico Racing sponsorship sign in front of his enclosure!

Calico Racing is honored to sponsor the following Cats under the care of Big Cat Rescue. Please visit them at :

AMORE: Amur Leopard facing extinction. Not housed at Big Cat Rescue, only 30-40 Amur Leopards remain in the wild, and those in captivity face rampant inbreeding forcing this gorgeous animal onto the critically endangered species list.

**To be clear: Calico Racing, LLC is technically a for-profit business. Revenue is collected in the form of entry fees, from which I pay the expenses to create, manage, support, and market the event. IF there is money left over- that is what I keep as payment for my 80+ hours a week of time I spend bringing these events to fruition. This money, if any, is used for me to buy groceries, pay my electric bill, buy cat litter, etc. If the expenses exceed the revenue for a race, I take a loss out of my own personal money, and get paid zero for my countless hours of work. It is from this “profit” that I elect to support charities of my choosing, being Big Cat Rescue; World Wildlife Fund; and ASPCA.
