Tigers for Tomorrow is gearing up for its first “Hot Rod Roar” on Oct. 3 to help out some new residents.
The event is being held at Dreamfield Productions, and the show is open to anything with wheels.
The event is to help raise money for two newcomers to the Tigers for Tomorrow Exotic Animal Preserve.
Sue Steffens, TFT president, said the event to is to raise money to build two new enclosures for 10-week old lion cub, Chloe, and 12-week old tiger cub, Tish.
Steffens said many may think this isn’t the time to take on additional animals, but TFT couldn’t refuse them.
“Thankfully, the cubs will not cost TFT any additional funds for an enclosure as they are planned to live just inside the preserve’s front entrance where a pack of young timber wolves now reside,” Steffens said. “TFT is planning on moving the wolves to an acre-plus habitat.”
The two new cubs will make TFT their permanent home.
“They’ll stay here for the rest of their lives,” Steffens said. “The cubs have already made their first trip to the doctor for a checkup and been spayed.”
Steffens said beginning Oct. 7, the cubs will be out in their temporary enclosure at TFT.
“Everyone is invited to come out to the preserve to watch the cubs grow,” Steffens said. “It’s going to not only be great fun to watch them tumble and play, but also a great educational opportunity to watch them grow.”
The Hot Rod Roar will run from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and the top 10 will be announced at 2 p.m.
