We have fantastic news, but urgently need your help. We’ve just been given the go ahead and can, at last, give Sandro the Real Tiger King the loving lifetime home he deserves. Please, can you help us?
Born in captivity, this beautiful 15-year-old tiger was forced to endure many years in a shocking barren cage in Ayamonte, a squalid zoo in Spain. He paced back and forth, with no enrichment and little shade from the blazing sun. But despite this ordeal, Sandro never lost the fire in his eyes, his fighting spirit, or his dignity.
There is no time to lose. Your gift today could help take Sandro to a new home. You could help move him to a wonderful sanctuary in northern Italy in the next few days. With your help, he can live the rest of his life free from harm in a spacious, natural enclosure.
“Thankfully, after years of Born Free campaigning with our Spanish colleagues, Ayamonte Zoo was closed down in 2019,” explains Born Free’s Head of Rescue & Care Maggie Balaskas. “Homes were found for the other animals, but Sandro has been waiting in a halfway house, with our friends at Natuurhulpcentrum (NHC), in Belgium. But he is now ready to move to a lifetime home and, with your help, can shortly move to the sanctuary in Italy.”
