Sandy the Lion

21/05/11 0 COMMENTS

It is with great sadness that we must tell you that we have lost Sandy, the year-old lion who underwent surgery on Friday. While the surgery seemed to go very well, she passed away suddenly today despite the efforts to help her. She was well-loved by everyone here, and we are sad to lose her. Many thanks to all of you who have asked about her and shown us your caring and concern.

To say we are heartbroken is an understatement. She will be deeply missed.

New and Larger Animal Habitats and Our $1 Dollar Drive

29/04/11 0 COMMENTS

Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary launched our $1 Dollar Drive yesterday and we wanted to discuss where part of that money will go if we reach our goal. $350,000 of that will be going to new and larger animal habitats. We have so many more animals than we use to and they need new habitats. Unfortunately, when the economy fell apart we lost our corporate sponsors and it was at this time that we needed help creating larger habitats.

We need to create new, outside habitats with an inside, storm-proof, protected area for our big cats. Each of these habitats needs a tiger pool as well. We need a new aviary for our birds and money to go towards our elephant enclosure. Our animals need more room and we are hoping to make this happen with donations from our $1 Dollar Drive.  If you contribute $1 we would appreciate it.

We Thank You

We thank everyone that visits that habitat because that money supports the animals and is saved for improvements. We thank everyone that donates money, drops off and/or donates food and those that donate items we need. We thank all of our volunteers because we couldn’t make it without you and we thank our staff who work for hard for not a lot of money. God bless you and all of our animals.

If we can get 1 million people to donate one dollar we can improve our habitat, take in more animals that need care and enrich the lives of our animals even more!

Help Us With Our $1 Drive! $1 Can Make All the Difference for Us!

  • $240,000 – Payroll, utilities, veterinary check-ups, food for the animals etc.
  • $25,000 – Educational materials for visitors and children visiting from local schools.
  • $350,000 – For new and larger animal habitats.
