One group is stepping up to help rescue several animals here in The Natural State.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare approved an emergency grant this week. The money will help Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge to rescue the remaining 10 big cats from a private home near Mountainburg.
We first told you about the on-going rescue efforts back in November. An elderly woman was housing nearly 30 big cats, including tigers and cougars, and could no longer take care of them.
Thanks to that grant, Turpentine Creek will be able to move the remaining cats and build habitats for them.
