PENNSYLVANIA-Survivors of Tiger Ranch Cat Sanctuary Need Help!

tiger ranch

The Tiger Ranch cat sanctuary located in Frazer, PA was raided recently, upon which PSPCA workers found around 600 cats on the property, including 200 dead ones in freezers. The majority of the living cats were infected with various parasites, respiratory diseases, mouth, nose, and eye infections, along with many other illnesses. Many had to be euthanized, as they were already dying from starvation or other disease due to lack of veterinary care. The owner is facing 593 counts of animal cruelty. The PSPCA is in need of donations for the continued care of these cats so they can find forever homes. Please help them by sending the following donations:

* THE PREVIOUS SUPPLY LIST WAS OLD! I HAVE RECEIVED THIS:

That supply list is old unfortunately. The media let out an old one by accident. The main things needs right now are quality food (wet) and litter (regular and yesterday’s news). Things like cat carriers are no longer needed. Please update your list. For those in the Pittsburgh area, a local organization has created a donation site there for those who wish to donate:

PITTSBURGH DROP OFF POINT NOW AVAILABLE
FOR SUPPLIES FOR THE TIGER RANCH CATS!

Many of you have asked how you can donate supplies for the Tiger Ranch cats. Well, now you don’t have to go any further than the East End of Pittsburgh… Our favorite construction materials supplier, Construction Junction, has graciously agreed to act as a drop-off / pick-up point for supplies for the Tiger Ranch cats currently being treated and cared for at the Clarion Shelter. The boxes will be checked daily and VFA volunteers will drive supplies up once or twice a week, according to needs.

If you would like to donate supplies for the cats in Clarion, you can take them to Construction Junction (address and opening hours below). The drop boxes are located to your right after you enter, behind and to the right of the large blackboard. Look out for a sign with a VFA logo by the boxes. If you are not familiar with Construction Junction, once you enter the parking lot, the main public entrance is about 2/3 down the lot to your left.

WISH LIST:
Quality dry cat food (Iams, Science Diet, Purina…), any size
Canned cat food, any size (no generics please!)
Cat litter (”Yesterday’s News” brand preferred – available at most Petsmart stores – but all brands welcome), any size

Dry food should be placed in the storage containers. Litter and canned food can be left by the boxes if the containers are fairly full. If anyone wants to donate and absolutely cannot get to Construction Junction, let us know by email or phone and we will try and arrange a home pick-up, where possible.

CONSTRUCTION JUNCTION
214 North Lexington Street
Pittsburgh 15208
(One block down from Penn Avenue, right up the street from East End Food Co-Op)

Monday through Friday: 8 am – 5 pm
Saturday 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday: 11 am – 4 pm

While you’re there, take advantage of this opportunity to drop off recyclable items that aren’t picked up on the curb side (office paper, junk mail, magazines, phone books, paperboard…), visit the FreeRide bicycle recycling workshop, or explore the fascinating aisles of Construction Junction itself…

Contact us if you have any questions. And feel free to let us know you’ve dropped off a donation. That will help us keep track of pick-up needs.

On behalf of the cats, thank you…

  1. I’m going to put this post on my blog…..and urge others who read my stuff to do the same.

    How many cats are there? How many of the listed supplies are needed? Usually people are more willing to donate if specific numbers of things are listed.

  2. […] Furry Friend has written this post explaining the […]

  3. I believe there are around 380 cats receiving care.

    The shelter gave no specific amount as far as supplies needed. I think they are willing to take as many as anyone can give. I’ve contacted PSPCA to get more specific info. Thanks for the support and crossposting.

  4. okay.

    when you get more info please post it so I can link to it.

    thanks.

    Thanks……

  7. I received an updated list. Thank you.

  8. I hate to judge, but in circumstances like this, I’m glad the Tiger Ranch owner is facing charges. Why have a sanctuary if you can’t care for the animals?

  9. im trying to find to cats i sent there can anyone help me i saw a pic of my one on the vidio from the update 4 months later

  10. I sent 20 cats up there in 2004 and found the place to be horrible. All of ours were already spayed/neutered/vaccinated so hopefully they found homes soon. I questioned her and she said that she had never had anyone complain before. We had traveled so far so we left the cats anyway as we had to spend the nite in a motel. I have thought about them just about every day since then. She deserves this to live like they did. I myself seen sick, dying cats. She only had dog food to feed them when we were there. She was so self-centered. She herself wrote a book about her knowledge and published and was selling it then. I bought one.
