About Us

The Oregon Tiger Sanctuary (OTS) was founded in 1991 by Penny Torres-Spinnler in the beautiful, verdant mountains of Southern Oregon to enhance the lives of retired zoo animals and to rehabilitate and provide sanctuary to retired, abandoned, abused and neglected animals.  OTS is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is recognized by the USDA as a model animal rescue facility with over twelve full-time volunteers on staff. 

The Oregon Tiger Sanctuary neither breeds nor sells any of its animals and is devoted to a vision of the world where all animals are treated with love and respect.

"To achieve what is our potential we must walk with courage,
overcoming all adversities with dignity, taking risks with the strength of a champion,
and resting in the hearts of love.  This is the path of Life. 
Together, we are making a difference in the
lives of abused and retired endangered species.
Thank you for your generous support."

With love and gratitude,
Penny Torres-Spinnler
and each of Us,
