Animal Rescue Bleg of a Different Kind

image

The picture above is of Baloo, Leo and ShereKhan, a lion,  bear and tiger all living together at the Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove, GA and they are BFFs!!  The reason this is a “rescue” ask is that their sanctuary is having to raise money to build a higher fence to conform to new federal regulations and, since they are 501(c)(3), they don’t have bags of money laying around.  if they can’t raise the funds the shelter will have to close and the animals dispersed to smaller shelters.  So Baloo, Leo and ShereKhan would likely have to be separated which would be devastating for them as they have been together since they were cubs 12 years ago.  More about their back story here.

I have done some research on Noah’s Ark and they are a legit organization dedicated to rescuing wild animals who have been mistreated, usually by idjits who think they’d make good pets, and the staff just tries to give them a good place to live out their lives.  I know times are tough for all of us but if you can help there’s a donate button here.  Thanks!

Progress:  $43K from DragonCon Atlanta!  Still a ways to go, but progress.

I love this group and was thrilled beyond thrilled that the bear is Baloo and the tiger Shere Khan!

They just won another $10K from #startaryot.  Yay!

I think they have reached the goal but it is still good to contribute
