ATTALLA, Ala. — Tigers for Tomorrow has a guardian angel.
Last week, the non-profit organization announced that Angels in Distress had awarded them up to a $50,000 matching grant. The match ends on December 1.
“It has been a hard year financially for the preserve,” the organization said via a statement. “We had to close our gates for six months after learning that tigers can contract the coronavirus. We have had to adapt, though difficult, just to open our gates on weekends, making it possible for guests to visit once again and enjoy the wonderful animals we have in our care.”
The effort to raise funds for the organization will be known as the Peace on Earth Matching Grant Fundraiser. Year-end donations will be matched for double, for example, if you donate $10, it is matched as $20.
You may donate to Tigers for Tomorrow via Facebook, at Regions Bank, or their website at www.tigersfortomorrow.org. Donation boxes are also available at the gift shop. Please mail checks to 708 County Road 345, Attalla, Ala. 35954. Donations of over $1,000 will receive a 4x4 banner on the Untamed Pathway in 2021 and donations over $2,500 will receive an 8x8 engraved brick on the entranceway to the preserve.
Tigers for Tomorrow is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Masks are required to be worn. Admission is $15 and $7.50 for children ages 3-11. No reservations are needed.
Tigers for Tomorrow is a 501(c)3 non-profit wild animal preserve and last stop home to over 160 animals. Their mission is to uphold the highest standards of care and respect for native and exotic animals in need of a secure and permanent home. As a wild animal preserve and rescue, we are open to the community as an environmental education learning center and outdoor recreational destination for the entire family.
