Isis Obituary

Isis, a 20-year-old, rare, snow-white tiger, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

She was a resident of the Western PA National Wild Animal Orphanage, owned by Dr. Sheperd.

Isis became part of the Western PA National Wild Animal Orphanage in 2007 when her owner, from Las Vegas, NV was unable to keep her. While in Las Vegas, she was seen in commercials, was pictured with Princess Tenko of Japan, and she visited Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion.

In 2012, Mr. Joe Hardy asked to display her at Nemacolin Woodlands. People from all over visited and were able to see the majestic beauty she possessed. She resided there while Nemacolin Woodlands supported the orphanage, and then in 2017, she returned to her home in Uniontown.

She enjoyed playing with her tiger toys, catnapping in the sun, swimming in her pool, and being loved by her caretakers. She was a very special, gentle creature that touched the hearts of many.

She was welcomed at South Connellsville Volunteer Fireman’s Club where fundraisers were held for the orphanage. She also auditioned for a role in a commercial for Toyota.

She will be deeply missed by Dr. Sheperd, and her caretakers, Kelly Zavatsky, and Scott Firestone.

A private memorial service took place on January 17, 2024, and she was laid to rest at a private location.

Donations in her memory can be sent to WPNWAO – 169 Shepard Lane Uniontown, PA 15401.

A spaghetti dinner benefit in her honor will be held on Monday March 4, 2024 at the Italian Oven in Connellsville, PA from 4:00pm – 8:00pm. All proceeds will go to the Western PA National Wild Animal Orphanage (a non-profit charitable organization) for the continual care of Isis’ big cat friends; Mea, Mya, Maves, and Mystic, and the ongoing rescue of large, exotic cats.
