Sanctuary founders

“The ADI Wildlife Sanctuary A Place of Loving Kindness”

Only with the help of our wonderful ADI Wildlife Sanctuary founders has it been possible for us to purchase 455 acres of land with buildings for the sanctuary; secure the perimeter, build 12 lion habitats, and pump water from our wells to all of them in less than six months; and relocate the lions we had rescued from circuses in Colombia and Peru within nine months – establishing our place of loving kindness in record time!

We have also been able to build yet more homes for animals in need in recent months, with 17 lions and tigers rescued by ADI from circuses in Guatemala following a ban, arriving at the sanctuary in January 2020.

By becoming one of our founding supporters (from $500 / £375 / R13,270), you can help us further develop our new sanctuary, and provide homes for more animals in need. Find out more and support the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary here.
