At the bottom are 5 blogs I have tagged to take the torch and run with their 7 best links.  Thank you for reading The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club.


Lion Guardians Give Each Lion a Maasai Name

Lions from the Lion Guardians ProjectIt was super tough for me to choose, but I chose this post with all the African Male Lions as the Most Beautiful. Our  wild lions are in trouble and the Lion Guardian Project is showing great promise for the conservation of the big cat. One of my favorite things about the project is the naming of each lion. The naming and telling of stories about each lion emphasizes the individuality of each cat. It is also much easier to forgive the lion for preying on livestock when you know the name and unique traits. I asked  the readers to tell me which lion caught their eye and why. They are all handsome, don’t you agree?

Small Paws Unite for St. Francis Animal Rescue Center

“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men”

Francis of Assisi

This quote is one of my favorites  by Francis of Assisi (Giovanni Francesco Bernardone, 1181-1226) who is known as the patron saint of animals and the environment. We have this icon hanging in our office to remind us to try and do our best for all of earth’s creatures both big and small.

The purpose of The St. Francis Animal Rescue Center is to rescue unwanted, abandoned and homeless cats in the York County and South Mecklenburg County areas and care for them until the cats can find  homes.  They are a no-kill, cage-free shelter that provides food, housing, veterinary care, immunizations and spaying or neutering for the animals in their care.  They strive to find good, loving permanent homes for the almost 100 cats that currently reside at the shelter. Additionally, they want to increase community awareness of the extent and gravity of the problem of homeless animals in the area.

It is hard to believe that a year has gone by since we all chipped in to help our cousins in need at St. Francis Animal Rescue Center. A lot has happened over the last few months and the good news is that Charlene has found a

The Tiniest Tiger is Thinking About Tomorrow

Good Morning Friends!  We had a full day yesterday didn’t we?  We were part of Be The Change For Animals blog day.  So many wonderful pet people blogging to make a difference.  We are uniting our paws to make a difference with St. Francis Animal Rescue Center.  Thank you so much for your generosity for our cousins in need.  Already as of this morning, 25 Friends have donated thorough The Tiniest Tiger’s ChipIn!

Yesterday we didn’t even know our new Friend Peter yet by the end of the day, our The Tiniest Tiger Streak had reached out  to help him throw a rescue net for sweet Fanning in Texas. Peter was overwhelmed by the response.  His message box was overflowing with offers to help.  As of this morning, Fanning will be rescued and fostered until she will be transported to be loved in her Forever Home.  Hurrah!!

The Tiniest Tiger Asks You to Be The Change for Animals

Blog the Change

“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men”

Francis of Assisi

Today is Be the Change for Animals day!  One day, once a quarter, Be the Change for Animals is asking bloggers to make a special post to talk about what they are passionate about and how they are trying to make a difference in the lives of animals.

Friends of The Tiniest Tiger know that we like to laugh, learn and share in our community. But we also unite our small paws to make a difference. We are approaching the one year anniversary of our The Tiniest Tiger Facebook page and our streak has grown to over 18,000!

Over the past year, The Tiniest Tiger’s Conservation Cub Club has  united their paws to help many of our cousins in need. Our Friend Anna Marie called out to her Friends at The Tiniest Tiger when her beloved Kaydee was suffering from complications after being neutered.  Kaydee’s medical expenses were mounting and Anna Marie was facing a decision about her baby based not on what could be done for him, but for what she could afford.   After exhausting her own resources  something told her to turn to The Tiniest Tiger for help.

Anna Marie’s heart felt plea launched our first united front to help save one of our cousins in need.  The outpouring of support was overwhelming  and Kaydee’s bill was paid in full. Sadly, Kaydee did not survive. He passed away in Anna Marie’s arms knowing that he was loved and his life mattered.   And mattered, indeed. 

Our motto Small Paws United to Make a Big Difference began with Anna Marie and Kaydee. Over the year TTT’s Conservation Cub Club has united to help out many of our Cat Cousins, both big and small.  After winning the Bissell MVP Pet Photo Contest, we were able to donate $10,000 to PurrEver Ranch Sanctuary. We supported, Meow for Mango, Nosetaps for Nancy, Big Cat Rescue and others.  In our 1st year we have been able to donate $17,000 to Cats in need, both big and small.

The quote at the beginning of this post is by Francis of Assisi (Giovanni Francesco Bernardone, 1181-1226)  known as the patron saint of animals and the environment. 

I have his icon hanging in my office to remind me to try to do my best  for all of earth’s creatures both big and small.

Friends of The Tiniest Tiger just this week posted that there was a no-kill shelter in North Carolina in desperate need to stay in operation.  We had just ended our Nosetaps for Nancy ChipIn and were considering waiting a while before posting our next shelter.

But when I saw the name of the North Carolina no kill shelter was  St. Francis Animal Rescue Center and that today was July 15 ” Blog the Change for Animals” day, I realized that there is no time like the present and there is no time to waste when trying to make a difference in the lives of our animals.

Thank you  Blog the Change for Animals and BlogPaws for all that you do.
