Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue "Big Cat" Benefit Car Show

Jeff and Jenny Kozlowski

The benefit will be hosted by Christmas Mountain Village in Wisconsin Dells, WI.

Jeff and Jenny founded the rescue in 2005 after they discovered the disgusting treatment of animals that were inappropriately used for traveling photo sessions at shopping malls or as house pets that were abandoned or abuse.

Jeff and Jenny decided it will be their mission to give what help they can to these majestic creatures. They are now licensed by the USDA as a rescue and educational center that is funded entirely by donations.

Special note:
Captn Bob and Arlo have visited the rescue several times and would tell you that you cannot appreciate the horrific stories of each cat that is in Jeff and Jenny’s care unless you make the trip. You would see how much they are cared for and loved. The animals will live out their lives in comfort.

It takes a great deal of time and resources to feed and care for over 26 cats.

He's doing it by visiting VA Hospitals and veterans throughout his planned ten thousand mile journey. He travels in a 1965 Volkswagen bug and sleeps at homes of kind strangers who believe in his cause.

Recently, his travels brought him to the Milwaukee area where he stayed with Big John of the Milwaukee Area Volkswagen Club.

Steve Darnell and Barber Dave will be on Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio Show on Saturday, August 16th.

Vegas Rat Rods is an instant hit on the Discovery Channel. These guys are building pieces of Art.  And as any of the great industrial designers already know – “Form Follows Function”.  And the guys at shop know that each ride must be built safely and must function with a cool flare for artistic design.

Steve Darnell is the owner of Welder Up. It’s a shop where they pride themselves as bringing junk back to life – one car at a time. The show follows a customer build from the beginning to the finished driver.

Barber Dave is one of the talented Welder Up crew members that contribute to each build. Steve and Barber, along with the other crew members, are really want makes the show fun to watch.

Each character has their own take on what should be done with the build. However, it becomes clear that Steve has the final say it how the ride will roll out of his shop.
