August 2013 ENEWS for the Exotic Feline Rescue Center
We are happy to announce that Marissa, our injured keeper, is back working at the EFRC for a couple hours a day. We are overjoyed she has returned and look forward to seeing her with her beloved BIG CATS!
Please join us on August 10th at 5:30 pm for our second Evening Roar of the season. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about our felines during an extended tour. We will have delicious hors d’oeuvres, desserts, wine and beer. Guests must be 21 years old to attend this amazing event. Click on the link below for more information.
Camp Roar 2013 was a great success. Campers enjoyed learning about BIG CATS during a scavenger hunt tour, games and a simulated medical procedure. Camp Roar 2014 is already in the planning stages and we are sure it will be an even greater success.
We are proud to announce that five female tiger cubs are the newest EFRC residents. In April, the rescue center traveled to Wisconsin to rescue four tigers. Imagine our surprise when we discovered Cloe was pregnant. Visit our website to view photos of the beautiful girls and stay tuned to our website for further updates about the cubs.
Munchie, female puma, came to the EFRC in May 2011 from a Pennsylvania facility. In 2000, Munchie was rescued during a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania federal seizure. From the deplorable Pennsylvania facility she was transported to a respectable Pennsylvania facility where she thrived until she made the journey to her forever home at the EFRC.
When Munchie arrived at the EFRC, one could not say she was a friendly cat. She would greet staff and visitors with a hiss, a growl or a snarl. Fortunately for visitors and staff, Munchie’s outlook on life and people have changed. Now, when you visit her enclosure you are more likely to be greeted with a purr or a chirp.
Thank-you for your continued support!
