Following a loss of appetite, we took Sombra – mother of our youngest tigers Max and Stripes – to the veterinary hospital where she was scanned, tested, and received treatment for low potassium levels, including intravenous feeding. It is likely Sombra will need supplements to help with this condition for the rest of her life. She is already on treatment to prevent her seizures (like her sisters Bimbi and Lupe), and she also has kidney problems.
& TIGERS IN GUATEMALA TAKE A STEP CLOSER TO A NEW LIFE. A new Temporary Rescue Center (TRC), better
climate and closer to the airport, is up and running. The tigers and lions
rescued from circuses by ADI, are safe. We have armed security. This is our launch pad for the final phase of
the rescue, which will see 6 lions and 12 tigers heading to the ADI Wildlife
Sanctuary in South Africa, and 3 tigers to Big Cat Rescue in Florida.
