My Story

Eli the Tiger


Eli and his sister Jess are 8 years old and came to us from Colorado at the end of December 2016. The operator of an animal facility in Colorado had 115 animals of which 75 were tigers. When his health began to fail, Tigers of America (TIA) stepped in. In September 2016 they and Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge (TCWR) took on the massive  job of caring for the big cats and slowly relocating them to permanent homes. Popcorn Park was honored that we were among those getting a call. 

We made our new arrivals comfortable while we tended to much  needed renovations to their den, pond and exercise yard. When the remodeling was complete Eli and Jess cautiously inspected it all and returned inside. After 3 days exploration, they made the space their own, even playing a game of tag! Eli is the more easygoing of the pair and settled in in a short amount of time. He enjoys spending his days roaming about his compound, basking in the sun, and wading in their pond. But he always finds time to play with his sister. Please consider sponsoring Eli today!
