• Asad

      R1,000.00R10,000.00
      Asad, found living in central Beirut, was successfully relocated to our sanctuary on 11-04-2012.Asad was born in August 2011. Lebanon has no laws governing the keep of wild animals as pets and Asad is one of the lucky ones. Animals like lion and cheetah cubs are smuggled into Lebanon and sold as pets, but their lives are often short lived as incorrect diets and inappropriate housing often lead to their demise. Often those surviving end up living in terrible conditions in backyard cages or private zoos. Without the hard work of Animals Lebanon his rescue would have not been possible. Special thanks must also be given to Animal Travel Services (www.animal-travel.com/) and DRA Customs Clearing & Forwarding who assisted with the import free of charge.

    • Goliath

      R1,000.00R10,000.00
      Goliath was born in a European circus. For most of his life he would have been confined to a “beast wagon” with hardly enough room to move. He would have undergone brutal and barbaric “training” and lived a miserable existence. Fortunately for Goliath intervention saw him being confiscated from the circus and temporarily placed in a wildlife refuge, the Natuurhulpcentrum in Belgium. Months of logistical planning took place before Goliath could be successfully relocated to us. On 13th February 2008, after a journey of almost 10 000 kilometers, Goliath safely arrived at the Sanctuary and for the first time he had freedom to roam outdoors. Goliath was born in May 2007. His rescue was made possible because of the generosity of the following sponsors: British Airways, The Animal Reception Centre (London), James Cargo Services, Animal Travel Services (Cape Town), Beauty Without Cruelty and Jeanne and Ian Bathgate. His enclosure was sponsored by the Marchig Animal Welfare Trust
    • Issam

      R1,000.00R10,000.00

      Issam was born on 2023-07-23, and arrived at the sanctuary on 2023-11-23. Issam's sister, Kelly, also successfully made the trip to us.

      Issam was confiscated from smugglers in transit from Syria to Lebanon. He was found crammed into a small cat carrier with no food, water, or space available. Animals Lebanon took Issam into their care until he could be placed safely into our care and both teams worked together tirelessly to ensure he could find his permanent home with us where he will be able to live out his life with the care and respect he deserves. These lions are true survivors, and we are proud to be their new home.

      Many thanks also go to Animal Survival International for their fundraising efforts with their campaign to support Issam and Kelly’s care costs. See more of their work here
