110 Animals Need Your Help Now

The Animals Need Your Help

November 11, 2016


Pandora at the Colorado Facility in her enclosure.

In September, Turpentine Creek took on the responsibility to care for 110 animals in Colorado. From that point forward their health, safety, and wellbeing became top priority to the team onsite.

The animals in Colorado need basic care such as daily enclosure cleanings, food, fresh water, veterinary care, and enclosure upgrades for safety reasons. It is only with your help that we can afford to not only care for the over 100 animals in Arkansas but also the animals remaining in Colorado. We must sufficiently staff both the Colorado and Arkansas facility to make sure all of our furry family members get the care that they need. Can you help? We went into this project knowing it would be a lot of work, and a lot of responsibility. The moment Tanya, Scott, and Emily stepped onto the property for the first time and saw the animals in need; we knew we had to do something to help.

Once the animals and property were secured, we began re-homing efforts. 27 animals came directly to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. From the onset, we also partnered with Tigers In America for help re-homing animals into GFAS and TIA accredited facilities. By moving some animals out, we were able to move the animals remaining in Colorado to enclosures that had proper shift areas and night houses, thus producing a safer environment for the animals and staff alike.

We need your help to care for all of the animals that are now part of the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge family. The 27 animals calling TCWR Arkansas home are in need of Sponsors and Adopters. Choose one below and help us, help him/her.


Amber, Aurora, Black Fire, Bosco, Chloe, Daniel, Donner, Fergy, Joey, Khaleesi, Kizmin, Lakota, Louisa, Mama Shakira 2, Marissa, Montana, Peyton, Pharoah, Poncho, Rocklyn, Roman, Savannah, Selbit, Shakira, Snowball, Tanya, and Thurston


All the animals in Colorado need support as well. We are working diligently to neuter the males that have access to females to stop the needless breeding. Many animals are in need of basic veterinary evaluations, and some are in need of more advanced veterinary care.

The animals in Colorado needed us, and although we knew it would be a lot of time, work, and money to do so we could not turn our backs on 110 big cats in need. Will you help us help them? Donate Now To Support The Colorado Project and All The Animals That Call TCWR Home
