How your #GivingTuesday donation helps FOUR PAWS?
Your #GivingTuesday donation supports FOUR PAWS in our mission to reveal animal suffering, rescue animals in need and protect them. Our LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary is the biggest FOUR PAWS sanctuary worldwide. The animals in our care were rescued from abusive situations in circuses, zoos, private keeping and the captive breeding industry.
Unfortunately, hand raised big cats can never be released into the wild, and therefore we have a lifelong commitment to taking care of over 100 big cats. As a result of years of suffering in captivity, with inadequate nutrition a and lack of medical attention, most of our animals need special care. This includes sensory enrichment, special feeding programmes, supplementation and ongoing medical treatment.
Your donations provide a lifelong species-appropriate home to these animals and enable us to take the best care of them.
