FOUR PAWS rescues 8 lions and will bring them to their new home LIONSROCK
On 2 December 2009, 3 lion cubs, born in captivity in Lubambishi Zoo, Democratic Republic of Congo, will be transferred to LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary after we received an appeal to help, as the Zoo could no longer care for them.
Together with these cubs, 4 lions from Romania and 1 male lion from Spain will arrive. All of them lived in cruel and unnatural conditions in captivity. In LIONSROCK they will find a new life of dignity befitting such magnificent animals.
It cost R400 000 to transport these lions and R140 per day per lion to feed them. We need to recuperate money for the transport to help others and ongoing support to feed, provide veterinary care and a species appropriate habitat – to make a donation please use these bank details.
