At Tiger Creek, our mission is simple yet profound:

to provide a safe and secure environment for animals in need of rescue or rehabilitation while conserving endangered and threatened species.



Founded in 1995, Tiger Creek is more than just a sanctuary; it's a haven for endangered species, native wildlife in need of rehabilitation and passionate individuals dedicated to their well-being. Nestled in the heart of East Texas, our sanctuary spans acres of lush, natural habitat meticulously designed to replicate the native environment and species-specific needs of each resident. 


Saving Animals One by One

What sets Tiger Creek apart is our unwavering commitment to conservation and education. Through our rescue efforts, we actively contribute to preserving endangered species that have otherwise been abused, neglected or displaced and we strive to be a driving force for positive change in the world of wildlife conservation.

Our passion for big cat conservation is unending. We continue to partner with fellow conservationists & distinguished facilities to help protect and save this endangered species.


Since the beginning, we have pursued further research and collaborations with institutions like Texas A&M, the National Institutes of Health, and global research stations. Our services have now expanded to benefit all animals, embodying our commitment to Saving Animals One by One.
