2020 It's been a WILD Year. 

It's been no ordinary year, 2020. So end it on a high-note and make your tax-deductible donation to Lions Tigers & Bears. And for a limited time, thanks to The JEM Project, your gift will be DOUBLED for the animals. That means your $15 gift becomes $30, your $60 gift becomes $120, and your $250 gift can double to $500! No matter the amount - your impact is doubled for the animals!  

Because of you...

  • We continued to provide a safe, enriching, lifetime home to our 60+ rescued lions, tigers, bears, leopards, mountain lions, bobcats, servals, horses and more.
  • We expanded our team, onboarding a part-time Programs Coordinator tasked with growing our volunteer program and a Sanctuary Foreman who is managing our team of animal and grounds keepers to streamline operations.
  • We provided specialized veterinary care throughout the year to treat our animals for various medical needs, including Denali the serval; Zulu the lioness; Shadow the leopard; Bakari the lion; Louie the lion; Meatball the bear. And of course all of our animals received regular preventative treatments including vitamins and supplements, flea and tick treatment, routine monitoring - all paired with a well rounded diet, fresh water and plenty of enrichment and room to play and explore.
  • We successfully handled the threat of the Valley Fire, which burned just a few miles south of our sanctuary for more than one week in September. We activated our emergency response protocol, which entailed both a partial evacuation and shelter in place procedures. Fortunately a total evacuation never became necessary and no fire damage occurred to our property. 
  • Our Lions Tigers & Bears Rescue Team relocated two habituated bears, Jackie and Russell, from Project Wildlife Ramona (CA) to Cleveland Armory Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison,Texas.
  • We worked to bring attention to the G.W. Zoo (of Tiger King-fame) and the abusive and neglectful environment their animals were subjected to. Photos and videos from visitors to the park revealed blatant violations of the Animal Welfare Act and raised serious concern for public safety. Our collective efforts ultimately led to the facility's closure and revocation of its USDA permit.
So as we look back at the last twelve months, yes, it's true, Lions Tigers & Bears faced our fair share of struggles: reductions in staffing, temporarily closing the sanctuary to visitors, canceled fundraisers, and the threat of a wildfire—but there is A LOT to be proud of and celebrate as you can see. The unwavering perseverance of our staff and dedicated volunteers is extraordinary—we truly have the best team. AND the generous support of our members, donors and supporters like YOU— who are the true lifeblood of our sanctuary and make this all possible—is remarkable. We couldn't have done it without you!

Together we will continue to make a huge difference for abused and abandoned exotic animals who otherwise would have no place left to turn. We are proud of our Lions Tigers & Bears family and all that we've experienced throughout the year.
