From Jeff Dorson Exec. Director of The Humane Society of Louisiana   9 comments

This morning the following note was posted on Tony’s Facebook page  from Jeff Dorson, the Executive Director of The Humane Society of Louisiana. Thank you Jeff and HSLA for your support of Tony. Local support is greatly needed for Tony and something which truly can have an enormous impact on getting Tony relocated to the home and life he deserves.

A huge “Thank You” to all of Tony’s friends who continue to be a strong voice for him and who never give up advocating for his freedom.

Jeff announced their support of the Free Tony The Tiger campaign and the formation of a national committee for Tony whose principle purpose will be “to develop a workable plan to transfer Tony to a new environment with a natural setting – and one that will attend to his social and medical needs.”  If you are interested in serving on this committee, please send a brief bio with your contact information to Jeff Dorson, Executive Director, Humane Society of Louisiana, at stopcruelty11@gmail.com   

Jeff’s Post

I have been in touch with other advocates who wish to free Tony as well, but I just discovered your website. I am the director of the Humane Society of Louisiana, and I am presently forming a national committee of people interested in devoting their time, energy and resources to help relocate Tony to an accredited big cat sanctuary. If you approve of this idea, would you mind sharing this invitation with your supporters on this site?

Dear Friends,

To help us focus our energies and develop one or more plans to secure Tony’s freedom and relocate him to an accredited big cat sanctuary, we are forming a free Tony the Tiger national committee. Committee members can live any where in the world, but must be willing to devote some spare time to developing and implementing plans that would help secure Tony’s freedom.

Committee “meetings” will be held in chat rooms and on conference calls throughout the next few weeks and/or months or beyond. We are looking for bright, energetic, creative, hard-working team players to serve on this national committee. Our principle purpose is to develop a workable plan to transfer Tony to a new environment with a natural setting – and one that will attend to his social and medical needs. Louisiana residents serving on this committee will be invited to meet with Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries officials, other agency representatives, and visit Tony at the Tiger Truck Stop.

If you are interested in serving on this committee, please send a brief bio with your contact information to Jeff Dorson, Executive Director, Humane Society of Louisiana, at stopcruelty11@gmail.com

Sincerely yours,

Jeff Dorson

  1. Tony has lived a very lonely life of neglect. Please, give him the release he deserves!

  2. Before this Year Of The Tiger is done with in 2010, I pray Tony will be FREE to FINALLY go HOME, to be the Big Cat he was meant to be – swimming in pools of water; sniffing bushes and climbing high to watch birds and see the stars in the nightsky.

  3. Hi Jeff. Thank you so much for helping Tony! I got teary-eyed at the thought that Tony might soon have clean air, grass under his paws, and some new friends.

    I sent you an e-mail yesterday regarding the new committee @ the “stopcruelty” address. I hope that was the correct address.

    If not, please advise. Thanks, again!

  4. PLEASE PLEASE NOW GET TONY RELEASED TO A BIG CAT SANCTUARY FROM THE HELL HOLE HE’S LIVED IN FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS!!!!!!! HE DESERVES QUALITY OF LIFE FOR HIS REMAINING YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. It would be great to finally see Tony the Tiger freed from the horrible conditions that he is subjected to everyday.Between the exhaust fumes and people that torment and tease him, he deserves to have a place where he can breath fresh air, and only be teased by the critters running through his cat-a-tat. No animal should be caged!

  6. Tony should be free!!!!!!

  7. I cannot offer time to serve on this Committee but wish The Humane Society of Louisiana every success in trying to Free Tony the Tiger.

    My own website about the Free Tony Campaign donates all royalties to Big Cat Rescue who have offered a home to Tony and so far has raised over $100.

    I am so pleased to see that the Free Tony campaign is spreading :)
