Ezra was a former pet seized by Texas Parks & Wildlife in December of 2017. For six months he was held at a facility in South Texas as an active investigation went on. As the facility never intended to have him as long as they did, authorities eventually asked if CARE could give him a long-term home. So, in late June 2018, Executive Director Heidi and Volunteer Billy drove all the way down to the Mexican border to pick up this special boy who was about 12 to 18 months old. The poor little guy had no name, and had been through an awful lot in his short life, but it was immediately clear that he was open to a lot of love and attention! He is a big sweetie!! 

The next day he successfully made the trip from his temporary home to his forever home. He has been so brave, exploring his new surroundings and getting to know his knew CAREtakers. He also is getting to know Zara and Mika, two young females, who we hope to introduce him to so they can all hopefully to continue to grow up together. 

Ezra is talkative (he sounds like Chewbacca) and energetic. It is amazing how loving he is considering his background - but he is also a spunky young tiger who likes jumping around - and at everything. 

Please give Ezra a very warm CARE welcome and we will keep you posted on how he is doing!
