Bengal/Siberian Tiger
We received a call from a sweet woman that was very upset.  She had
rescued a tiger that was being exploited for money then beaten if he
didn't cooperate with his owner.  A 'photo cat'.  She went through the
proper proceeder with her state and county to get permitted to help this
beautiful animal.  She spent the next few years giving this tiger the love
and respect he needed.  Then, she was told that she would lose her home
owners and business insurance if she didn't get rid of the tiger.  She was
left with some tough choices. Finding a home for a tiger is a lot harder than
some may think.  She feared for the life of this tiger.  Would he have to be
euthanized?  Unfortunately, that was one of the only other options since she
was given a limited amount of time from the insurance company to find another
home for the tiger.  Then she found Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary.  I still remember
talking with her that day.  I remember her sigh of relief when we told her that we
would help.  Ark RAIN went through all of the necessary legal channels here to
get permission from our state to rescue this tiger, then from her state to transport
the tiger, then from her insurance company to make sure that her policy wasn't
cancelled while we were working on all the arrangements.  Tobi was transported
safely soon after this and now has a permanent loving home at Ark RAIN Wildlife Sanctuary.
This poor baby was abandoned and left to die by her
uncaring owner when he moved.  The landlord took
care of her for a while then the new tenant tried to help
but realized the animal needed a lot of specialized care
that she did not have the time or experience to give.  
She was kind enough to search for a good home for
her and found our website.  The Coatimundi had
frostbite on her tail and some reversible skin
conditions, overgrown claws and patches of hair
missing at the time of the rescue from the neglect she
suffered before this kind person temporarily took care
of her.  She now has a permanent loving home at
Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary.

Green Grivet Monkey
This monkey was well cared for by the owner who had
the knowledge, the time and the money to care for
her.  The owner realized that she would be happier in
a natural habitat with other monkeys near.  She came
to live at Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary along with tons
of food and toys from her loving owner.  What a

Below are just a few of the animals that have been rescued by
Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary.

Ark R.A.I.N. has also helped place hundreds of creatures at other licensed facilities such as;
lions, tigers, cougars, wolves, bears, cats, dogs, goats, horses, birds, reptiles and many
different species of monkeys.
Capuchin Monkey
The owner did not have proper permits.  The options the
state gave were euthanasia or placement at a USDA
licensed facility out of state.  Prior to this owner, this 37
year old monkey bounced around in a few abusive
homes, losing an eye, being given alcohol to drink to
calm him down and being housed in a cage hardly big
enough to turn around in.  He came to us very
malnourished, severely arthritic and with liver and thyroid
damage. Popeye lived the rest of his life with an
abundance of love and happiness at
Ark R.A.I.N. Wildlife Sanctuary.

Iguanas, Iguanas and More Iguanas!
We continually get calls to take in iguanas.  Most of the
iguanas come from people that could no longer keep
them after they grew too large to handle.  Most of the
iguanas that come to us are untamed and
malnourished.  Although one of the most recent iguanas
that we rescued came from someone that took very good
care of him.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, she was
unable to give him as much attention as he needed and
felt that he would benefit by living the rest of his
life at a sanctuary.
