I rescued 2 Tigers approx. 4 years ago, where i have been funded their upkeep personally even though there was talk of assisting financially from other sources which never materialized, over the last 4 years I have depleted my savings as well as needing to spend time with "my two children" proved to be detrimental to my everyday income,
I have been self employed in the IT sector for the last 22 years but sadly with the combination of the declining economy, 15 year+ contract clients that have grown to a size where they have employed in-house staff to take over the the duties that I was contracted to do, these contracts were never renewed, as well as an unexpected sudden family death sent shock waves through myself , which has taken me months to emotionally and mentally recover from. I do understand that this is apart of life and we need to cater for this , but alot easier said than done ... however, I now find myself having to pick up the pieces and rebuild what I once had which I am doing but as we knows .... a long process,
As I am their handler and "Daddy" so to speak , i promised them a forever home, and put their needs before my own , I am doing this currently but only just keeping head above water.
As i am self employed ,so in saying that , the time I spend with the animals I cannot spend to generate income so it becomes a balancing act where I obviously need funds but it is also imperative that I stimulate my babies on a daily basis.
Having said all of this , I reach out to the public to assist me with funds where myself , Blu and Cleo will be forever grateful ,
These funds will go towards, food , water bills, electricity bills ( Pool Pumps, Electric Fencing) , Enclosure upkeep equipment etc.)
I thank you for the time spent to read this and appreciate any amount that you are willing to afford us
