Kid’s Club

Pen Pal Program

Hi, My name is Elijah. I am a Siberian tiger and I live at PrideRock Wildlife Refuge in Terrell, Texas. All of us at PrideRock want to hear from children all over the world and after you write to us, we will write back. Tell us about your age, family and hobbies and we will write back and tell you about my life at PrideRock. You’ll also receive an 8″ X 10″ photo of the lion, tiger, cougar, bear, hyena or wolf you write to .

Don’t know who you want to be your pen pal? Go to the Residents page to see a photo of all PrideRock residents.


Pick your favorite animal from the Residents page. Write an short letter to that animal, enclose $10, and send to PrideRock Wildlife Refuge at PO Box 1594, Terrell, TX, 75160, Attn: Pen Pal Program. After we receive your letter, you will receive a letter from that animal as well as an 8″ X 10″ photo of that animal.

With all the new technology these days, make children do not receive letters in the mail anymore. Your child will be thrilled to find a letter in the mailbox, get to open it themselves and read it. Your child will be smiling for days.

Your child will receive an 8″ X 10″ photo (above) and a letter (to right) from the PrideRock animal of his or her choice.
