Grabbing The Tiger By The Tail
DELRAY BEACH, FL (February 5, 2010) — Arthur Benjamin, Founder and President of American Dog Rescue, heard about the plight of two animals left at a closed zoo, Lookout Mountain Wild Animal Park in Mentone, Alabama, the only two animals that have not been relocated. While they are not canines, they fit the animal welfare mission of this rescue organization. Therefore ADR, moved by their plight, has issued a $10,000 challenge grant to raise $30,000 so that these large cats can have a new home.
Tigers For Tomorrow, a sanctuary in Attalla, Alabama, has agreed to clear land, build housing and have these two tigers join their other 130 animals on 140 acres making “Untamed Mountain” their home. These tigers bring the sanctuary; open to the public on Tues and Thurs afternoons and weekends, to 26 tigers, 7 lions, 13 cougars, 2 bears and sundry other creatures. The sanctuary is well-respected by state and national organizations.
