The Safari Park Zoological Park in Caney, Kansas experienced quite a stir last month when a rare white tiger mother refused contact with her newborn cubs. To the rescue was the park’s Golden Retriever Isabella who took over their care and feeding. Isabella became an overnight celebrity.

The Safari Zoological Park’s mission is: We believe that animals belong in their natural habitats. Unfortunately, their natural habitats are quickly being destroyed and many animals are losing the opportunity to have full and happy lives. We think that much of this void can be filled with good care and social interaction.
