Ohio Tiger Relief Fund
With the help of hundreds of supporters, we have reached our $50,000 fundraising goal to build a new house for the Ohio Tigers! However, we've had a set-back. In order to include water pools for the tigers to play in, due to the added costs of expansion of electrical service, water lines, and a service path, we need to raise an additional $10,000. Please help if you can so the tigers can enjoy the pools, too! Thank you!
Ashland, Ohio Rescue Center Closes
Four Tigers Come to BPAS
Black Pine Animal Sanctuary was contacted by Denise and Jose Flores, owners of Tiger Paw Exotic Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in early 2012 as legislators in Ohio were listening to a bitter debate unfold between exotic animal owners and advocates who supported more strict regulations in a state that had no laws. After Tiger Paw successfully relocated all but four remaining tigers to some of the finest sanctuaries in the nation, the costs of compliance have proven too much, making it impossible to fulfill their hopes of keeping Sammie, Delilah, Taz and Ticha.
Black Pine has kicked off a major fund raising campaign to help offset the costs of providing these four tigers a new forever home! We need your help to reach a goal of $50,000 to help cover the costs building new habitats, food, bedding, and more for the cats. Veterinary care and transportation costs were made possible by a generous donation by the International Fund for Animals Welfare (IFAW). Now we need your help to build their new, permanent habitats!
