ALBION, Ind. (WOWO) – A fundraiser to help a tiger at Black Pine Animal Sanctuary raised over $4,000 to help cover surgery costs.

During a recent annual exam, Prince was found to have a detached retina and cataracts, causing loss of sight. His vision can be restored, but help was needed to meet the $3,000 medical expense.

On Tuesday, One10 West Main Street in Albion served “Tigerloins” with 50% of the proceeds going towards Prince’s surgery. The restaurant ordered 200 tenderloins for the day and sold out.

Between those efforts, tips, online donations, and staff donating their wages for the day, $4,035.50 was raised.

Black Pine says that the extra money will be used for pre-surgery dental work for Prince.

Online donations can still be made at www.bpsanctuary.org/donate.
