Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who supported getting the bronze tiger that welcomes you into the Charles Paddock Zoo a makeover. After 25 years, he was looking a little worn, so he was sent to Genesis Bronze Foundry to be sandblasted, restriped, recolored and reshined to create a better-than-ever look. He is once again ready to grrrreet you and protect the flamingos.

There’s still time to get on the donor list with a check to Friends of the Charles Paddock Zoo. Be sure to direct it to TIGER MAKEOVER.
