Two rescue tigers finally get to experience what it is like to swim in water. There is so much joy!

Carli and Lily were rescued from a “dirty, run-down cage” in Buffalo, New York. They had never had a chance to learn to live like a wild cat that they are until they were saved and brought to a new forever home at Safe Haven Rescue Zoo in Nevada .

IFAW’s Kelly Donithan visits these two rescue tigers at their sanctuary and witnesses the first time they are able to feel what it’s like to swim!
