Dear Friends and Customers, 


We have recently received numerous inquires concerning the live tigers at tiger truck stop.

We've taken a lot of heat from a few animal rights' activists that say our tigers ought to be out in the wild, but we really love these cats and take the very best care of them we can. Some people have told us our cats look like they get better care than cats at a lot of the zoos. They're reproducing well, and that says a lot about the care they get.


Tony is the only tiger currenlty living at the Tiger Truck Stop.
Seven cubs have survived birth here, which is a better record than the national average for zoos in this country.
Our beliefs about having the tigers closely follow comments made at the web site Wild Abouts Cats, a web site for general requirements for private ownership of wild animals, in their article General Requirements For Private Ownership.  The article states: "Zoos are full to capacity and also have strict requirements on the animals that they acquire Compoundshave to rescue some, but there are simply not enough sanctuaries for them all. Therefore, taking into consideration that many people are determined to get a cat no matter what they are toldwe would rather that these people were educated properly on care and handling, rather than dictated to that what they are doing is wrong."

Many visitors pass by here each year.
Here's some food for thought. Who is to say that a balanced diet, program of veterinary care, doubling the tiger's life span, love, and human affection are not better than the alternative?

All of the tigers at Tiger Truck Stop were born in captivity, hand raised pets, that need and desire human affection. It is our opinion that it would be just as cruel to take our tigers away from their known environment as it would be to capture a wild tiger and put it in a cage.

It is Tiger Truck Stop's desire to improve its facility. This expansion involves adding a pool for the tiger to enjoy. As you well know updating a facility like this is not cheap. If you would like to help us do even better for the tiger, we would appreciate a donation to help with this project. We have the tiger's best interest at heart and we applaud your efforts in helping protect animals. We hope you continue to do so please forward any correspondence to:
