Arthur the Tiger

Male Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11 Arthur is social with his keepers, however he keeps his guard up at times. He settled in soon enough as it is hard to resist the charm of the volunteers who bring treats to their newest charges. Arthur loves his brother Andre dearly and the two are often found cuddled up in the same den or lounging together in one of their pools. Arthur is the dominant tiger in the group and shows off his fierce attitude at dinner time. We can only guess the feeding situation of their previous home, but from Read More

Amanda the Tiger

Female Tiger Born 1/1/96 Rescued 9/28/11   Amanda is the most timid of the three tigers who live together. She is very shy and years after her rescue will still slink away to hide when people approach her enclosure.Although at times she has the opposite reaction and will charge the side of the enclosure and roar. It is unclear if she is doing this to be aggressive or to get a rise out of her keepers for her own entertainment. The reason it is unclear is if when she charges and roars and the keeper stands still and chuffs Read More

Gilligan

Male Canada lynx Appx. 1/1/07 Rescued 5/5/13   Gilligan's age is unknown. He was purchased along with Skipper at an auction. Gilligan had the tiniest cage measuring 5' x 7'. It was also the dirtiest of all of the cages. The mud floor was not mud, but feces covered with a sprinkling of straw. It appeared as though Gilligan had tried to keep much of his waste confined to one area on top of his plastic dog house. He had perched atop the house day after day to defecate. The large pile of feces cascaded out of the side of his cage. Read More
