Welcome to Tiger Creek Animal Sanctuary. We’re a 173 acre wildlife preserve dedicated to over forty rescued big cats and other endangered species. We would love for you to come meet these majestic felines and to learn more about endangered species to find out how you can help ensure their future in the United States and worldwide.
From our past, to the present, and beyond into the future: this has been our guiding mission as we work to establish large natural habitats for these animals while refining the amenities for our guests. Tiger Creek actively participates in an outreach program focused on threatened and endangered species in the wild and on genetic research. Our prolific educational programs are thoroughly engaging and include internship opportunities.
Our passion is wildlife, and we’d love to share that with you. We offer a myriad of tour packages including sensory tours for children with special needs. Tiger Creek was opened to the public for the purpose of promoting stewardship through educational opportunities for people of all ages. With a mission such as ours – sometimes we feel overwhelmed, but thanks to our generous supporters we know that our goals are possible.
We have constructed one of the most advanced facilities for endangered animal research in the United States. We provide a safe and comfortable environment for endangered animals to live while we conduct our research.
At Tiger Creek Animal Sanctuary, we conduct groundbreaking research with a goal of ensuring the lasting survival of threatened and endangered species in the wild.
The use of tours keeps the public informed about this important species while also generating funds to ensure we can continue our research and grow our organization.
Without the generosity of our volunteers and donors, the work we do at Tiger Creek Animal Sanctuary would not be possible. It is because of these people that we make an impact on the scale we do.
