We are delighted that our dear Colombian ex-circus lion, OJ (Ojiclaro), has been discharged from hospital and is home for Christmas.
OJ went into hospital a couple of weeks ago after he seemed unwell, and we were all so very sad when he was diagnosed with leukaemia. Our vet Dr Peter Caldwell said his prospects were bleak, as no cure has been published, but when we asked how long OJ might have at home, Peter said there was something he could try. Naturally, we said yes.
Hear freedom roar at this special screening of the award-winning feel-good movie Lion Ark, which we have rescheduled for Monday, June 29th in Sonoma, California (Note: Date likely to change — watch this space for updates). A benefit for the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, watch the drama unfold with the rescue team leaders as ADI tracks down the circuses in Bolivia and RESCUES EVERY ANIMAL.
Homeless Kesari is now a resident of the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary.
The operation at Pretoria Zoo began at 5:30am and some of you joined us in the early hours/late at night on Facebook Live, as Kesari was loaded into his travel crate ready for the journey to the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary (ADIWS).
& TIGERS IN GUATEMALA TAKE A STEP CLOSER TO A NEW LIFE. A new Temporary Rescue Center (TRC), better
climate and closer to the airport, is up and running. The tigers and lions
rescued from circuses by ADI, are safe. We have armed security. This is our launch pad for the final phase of
the rescue, which will see 6 lions and 12 tigers heading to the ADI Wildlife
Sanctuary in South Africa, and 3 tigers to Big Cat Rescue in Florida.
August last year, we purchased 455 acres of land and buildings in South Africa. It was just a beautiful, blank canvas, and we knew turning it into an animal sanctuary would be a monumental task. One year ago this week, we were rolling up our sleeves and taking on that task and today, our ADI Wildlife Sanctuary (ADIWS) awakes each day, to the roars of our rescued lions, freed from suffering.
