Aneta arrived at the sanctuary late afternoon on 10-12-2009. Aneta was born in April 2008.

Aneta comes from an impoverished Romanian zoo where a multitude of lions are crammed into small 4 x 4 meter concrete jails.

Her rescue was made possible by the following sponsors:

SOS Dogs Romania and Hundehilfe.

Special thanks must also be given to Animal Travel Services ( and Havillam Abrahams from Highmoor Freight who once again assisted with the import free of charge.
