So if you tweet, join us on Twitter ~ Monday April 20th, 2015 ~ and GET LOUD for TONY! We’d like to demonstrate the awesome support and love he has worldwide and that he deserves a Shorty Award as recognition for his strong social media presence on this important issue.

Our Tweetstorm will highlight Tony’s story, his Shorty Awards Campaign, how captive tigers are exploited, and what you can do to help them.

Just a quick note to THANK all of Tony’s friends for their awesome support during the Shorty Awards. Nominations CLOSED on February 19th, 2015; the Shorty Awards website states that “All finalists will be announced soon.”

“Tony’s” Shorty Awards Campaign objective is to raise awareness for captive tigers and he does an awesome job of it by tweeting ways for friends to take action.

CAPTIVE U.S. TIGERS

Captive U.S. tigers are used in roadside zoos and attractions, photo ops and exhibitions, entertainment shows and circuses, pseudo-sanctuaries, bred for profit or are owned as “pets.” From IFAW: “Private possession of big cats is a legal patchwork: 30 states ban private possession, 14 states allow possession with a permit, and 6 states have absolutely no restrictions on private possession at all.” ( http://www.ifaw.org/united-states/big-cat-advocates-map )

THE BIG CATS AND PUBLIC SAFETY PROTECTION ACT
One of the most important ways we can help tigers like Tony and other captive big cats in the United States is to support The Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act. This bill would prohibit the private possession and breeding of captive big cats in the United States except at highly-qualified facilities like accredited zoos where they can be properly cared for and safely managed. It would only allow breeding at accredited zoos, along with some research or educational institutions.
