Adopt Spanky
In April, 2003, officials executed a search warrant on a "pseudo-sanctuary" operated under the name "Colton Tiger Rescue" in Colton, California. During their search of the owner's residence they discovered 90 dead tiger carcasses, including 58 baby tigers dead in a freezer. Thirteen other cats were found barely alive. Then the state seized control of "Colton Tiger Rescue" where Spanky and 53 other big cats remained. Criminal charges were brought against the owner. Learn More»
