Linda donated this original painting to Carolina Tiger Rescue to benefit their animals. CTR is a nonprofit organization that provides a lifelong sanctuary to wildcats rescued from the pet trade or other abhorrent conditions, whose mission is to save and protect wildcats in captivity and in their native habitats.

“I’m honored to gift an original painting of one of CTR’s ocelots. Having visited Carolina Tiger Rescue many times, I am constantly impressed by the individual attention each animal receives. The 55 acre compound is filled with beautiful healthy tigers, leopards, lions, ocelots, and caracals, to name just a few, who are very fortunate to now reside at CTR. Each enclosure provides ample space for these wild animals to romp, or just snooze in or atop their private houses. It has been my privilege to personally meet these handsome creatures along with the dedicated people who care for them.” LR
