Time to celly-brate! Tony the Tiger is gonna get his dignity back!


Tony the TigerThe fambly kittens are happy to tell you that, on May 6, a Louisiana judge ordered the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to permanently stop renewing the state permit that allows "Tony the Tiger" to be housed at the truck stop.

Thanks to the work done by WSPA partner organizations Animal Legal Defense Fund and Big Cat Rescue - in addition to the 40,000+ supporters who signed their "Free Tony the Tiger" petition last November - Tony will be freed from his roadside cage by December. He has languished in poor conditions for more than ten years, and now can begin a new life of freedom in a sanctuary.

The fambly kittens are so grateful to be able to share this wonderful news with you, as a reminder of what can happen when people stand together on behalf of animals.
