Serenity Springs Wildlife Center needs help.
The big cat rescue needs to raise tens of thousands to help white tiger Snow Magic receive surgery to amputate one of his back legs. Snow Magic suffered a spinal aneurism and has since lost mobility in that leg. Without surgery, which costs about $10,000, he will have to be euthanized.
Serenity Springs also wants to build a special recovery enclosure for Snow Magic and other animals who will need it in the future. That will cost another $15,000.
The 10-year-old tiger came to Serenity Springs about three years ago, and has needed special care most of his stay. Despite that, Snow Magic's not at a loss for personality; he's described as being "talkative" to visitors and enjoys swimming in his pool.
Serenity Springs also points out that he's one of just 17 snow tigers left in the world.
To donate, mail checks to Serenity Springs Wildlife Center, P.O. Box 112, Calhan, CO, 80808. You can also contribute by going to serenityspringswildlife.org/donate (put "SNOW" in the notes section). Serenity Springs' website also says that donations of labor and materials also help their cause.
