Wishing all of Tony’s friends ~ and TONY ~ Happy Holidays ~ THANK YOU for your continued support of Tony. It is because of YOU that Tony’s story remains prominent. By sharing his petition, being active on his Facebook page, tweeting for and “with him” we keep the public informed of his plight and demonstrate our commitment to him.
Tony received some great support on Instagram recently – this is another excellent platform – where just one picture posted by friends @coco_sazerac (who visited Tony) was reposted by @catsofinstagram and received over 7,000 likes! See: http://instagram.com/p/hgYLujoS6p/#If anyone visits Tony, please take photos and video and post on Instagram; please tag @tonythetruckstoptiger.

The most recent update we have: The Animal Legal Defense Fund and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries each filed exceptions to Sandlin’s case, seeking to have the lawsuit dismissed, in a hearing on Monday, December 09, 2013. No other information is available at this time. http://aldf.org/cases-campaigns/features/tony-the-truck-stop-tiger/ Special Thanks to ALDF for their persistence in this case and the tremendous work they do to advance the rights and welfare of animals through the legal system. Please visit: http://aldf.org/about-us/ to learn more about this vital organization for animals and consider supporting them.
Tony’s petition reached 36,000 signatures this week. The petition requests the LDWF to enforce Louisiana state law and ensure Tony is relocated to a reputable sanctuary. If you haven’t signed please do and continue to share.
Concluding this post with warm wishes for the holiday and this wonderful video from Big Cat Rescue – Tampa FL of their cats enjoying there Christmas enrichment – we’ll continue to advocate on Tony’s behalf for the same.
