How You Can Help Tony
•Voice your concerns for Tony to The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for his release to a reputable, established, humane accredited big cat sanctuary that will meet all of his needs.

It’s very important that all correspondence for Tony be done in a respectable focused manner. While we are all very passionate and concerned about Tony, his health and welfare, please remember polite and focused letters have a better chance of being addressed and our concerns taken seriously. When you advocate for Tony, you are representing him – he deserves the utmost respect as do the individual(s) we are writing to.

What I want to know...who is Tony's owner S***K*** Off to be able to keep Tony this long? Anyone else,Tony would have been rescued already. Free Tony, Cage Tony's Owner and the stupid officials instead. Now THAT, we'd all be lining up to see.
