Welcome! East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue is a non-profit exotic animal sanctuary located in rural Pennsylvania. Our goal is to provide a forever home to the animals in our care. Does your favorite animal have feathers, fur, or scales? Our unique sanctuary is home to more than 40 species of exotic animals including birds, carnivores, and reptiles! For all of them, the rescue provides a lasting refuge where they can live their days in peace and safety. We hope you will visit us to learn more about these magnificent animals! One of our very special rescues was Kat, the Siberian Tiger. Just as no two snowflakes are alike, so does each tiger have a unique pattern of stripes. (“Kat”) was a Bengal Tiger who started out as a high school mascot 18 years ago. She was a survivor! She outlived her captive life expectancy of 16-18 years. We hope she enjoyed her remaining time here, living in the warmth of the sun and fresh breezes of the surrounding mountains. Kat was one of the main reasons for this rescue sanctuary. Kat passed away December of 2006 at the age of 22 years old.
