    • 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.
