Swimming Pools Everywhere

Operation Cool Cats, CARE’s ongoing summer project for building in-ground swimming pools for all of the tigers, is in full swing. So far, Chompers, Consuela, and Bonnie, Clyde and Levi have had pools built in their enclosures – and they love them! The summer heat can be very hard on the cats (especially our older cats) so providing cats with swimming pools as a means of cooling themselves off is essential. While the cats are provided with above ground pools every summer, we felt as if permanent, cemented, in-ground pools were a more viable alternative. Our volunteers and interns have been hard at work digging holes for the pools and then securing the pools in the holes with cement. While the building can be labor intensive, it is entirely worth it to see the cats enjoying the cool water and being able to stay cool in the Texas heat. By the end of this summer, we are hoping to have a completed in-ground swimming pool in each tiger enclosure.

What CARE has been able to accomplish this year is incredible and it was because your amazing support and generosity. We work hard to care for each and every animal here, and it is a difficult job, but know that it would not be possible if we didn't have you. You are making a difference in each animals' life here. You will always have our gratitude.

We hope you all the best today and everyday. Thank you for being a part of CARE!
