(ALBION) - Meet Delilah and Sammie.

Eryn Rogers, of WANE TV reports, they've just moved to Indiana from Tiger Paw Rescue Center in Ashland, Ohio.

Ohio has cracked down on their private ownership laws for exotic animals after what happened on October 18, 2011 when a Zanesville, Ohio man let 56 of his exotic animals loose before killing himself. Now, his actions are affecting families like Denise Flores who can't afford to have the cats she's had for 17 years because of insurance costs.

For now, Delilah and Sammie will be in temporary housing until Black Pine can build a new sanctuary for them costing $50,000. The two other tigers Flores has will be transported next weekend.

Black Pine staff said Delilah and Sammie are their 19th and 20th rescue missions since 2011.
