Our founder and fearless leader Eduardo Serio, “Eddie” has been rescuing Animals since October 2013. At the time, he had received a call from his cousin, an Animal expert with over 25 years of experience, who informed Eddie about a pet store that was trying to acquire a baby black jaguar for extra income. Their plan was to drug and use the baby jaguar as a prop for photos. Ever since this first rescue mission, Eddie has had a passion for saving Animals and has worked tirelessly to create the Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation through research, education and the assembly of the best professional experts in medicine, conservation, law, philanthropy and more. The Black Jaguar-White Tiger Foundation officially opened its doors in 2015, and became a full fledged 501(c)(3) nonprofit and Tax Exempt organization in 2016.
