Doc, a 550 lb tiger, is getting in touch with his artistic side at Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, GA.

Noah’s Ark, a non-profit organization, shelters over 1,500 previously neglected, abused, and unwanted animals. In addition to providing the rescued animals with food, shelter and love, the sanctuary also offers enrichment activities designed to help mental health – including access to non-toxic children’s paint.

Painting benefits animals both physically and psychologically. In this video, Doc, who is known for his playful personality, can be seen perfecting his latest masterpiece by rubbing his face and head against the canvas! Other artists live in the sanctuary as well, including a baboon, a brown lemur, and even wolf-dog hybrids.

Once a scared cub paraded for tourists’ amusement and photo opportunities, Doc now lives a safe and healthy life – one that is picture perfect.
