Texas Tiger Rescue

3 Tigers rescued from Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO), a San Antonio, Texas sanctuary that went bankrupt in 2010. In 2003, Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO) took in 24 tigers that had been living at a New Jersey facility that was shut down by the state. After declaring bankruptcy in 2010, WAO contacted the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and other organizations for help in placing these tigers and the rest of their big cats at other sanctuaries. WAO struggled for over a year to find permanent homes for all of their cats because it is hard to place a big cat who will cost 000 per year in food and vet care. Amazingly, an anonymous donor couple who had known these tigers as cubs fortuitously stepped in to fund the ongoing care of three lucky tigers who are coming to Big Cat Rescue. Your donation today helps us continue our work to end the trade in big cats and makes it possible for us to rescue others and provide permanent care to more than 100+ big cats who call Big Cat Rescue home.

    It’s sad that sanctuary closed :(  It’s so hard for a non for profit to exist let alone thrive.

    I hope you guys are able to take the rest from her. These wonderful cats need a good home that can provide fro them the rest of their life. I would love to see them all out of cages in more of a safari atmosphere. No animal should be caged. A nice remote island would be great for them.where they have wild pigs.but still a way for them to still be filmed.

    I am glad to see these animals being moved from Carol A. She criticized a lot of responsible pet owners. Then has had escapes from her facility. I had knowing these cats will be declawed. Carols attittude is her down fault for the faculties failure. She needs to be banned from having anymore exotics.

    I heard about that New Jersey facility on Fatal Attractions. The lady who owned the place was an animal hoarder who even bribed the state to keep the tigers. I think it’s a violation of the endangered species act.

    We take appropriate measures to make sure this would never occur, we provide a permanent home for the animals we rescue.

    I live right down the street from where these animals were kept and not a lot of people knew that they were there like neighbors

  20. Demoniiiic says:

    thanks for doing what you do bigcatrescue

    Exactly. Like a kangaroo. No only do they have a powerful kick, put their incredibly long nails could disembowel you at that force. We don’t have to worry about missing and shattered limbs when kitty kitty has a temper tantrum

  22. lcc726 says:

    Once again its great to see what you guys have done for these tigers. Keep up the great work:) From one tiger lover to another :)

  23. HikariUtada says:

    Yeah that’s true. Also where our cats claws are much smaller even though they can do quite a bit of damage, however that is nothing compared to if you were scratched by a Tiger. Who have much larger claws that could rip your arm or lag to pieces.
