WHAT HAPPENED NEXT FOR THE SOUTH AMERICAN CIRCUS LIONS RESCUED BY ADI? ADI’s Operation Spirit of Freedom – to be featured this Sunday on CBS 60 Minutes – was the biggest rescue of its kind ever undertaken. Over 100 animals saved, every circus tracked down and emptied, and 33 lions flown home to Africa. It takes animal rescue on a massive scale to actually end the suffering in a country. This huge scale has continued with ADI’s biggest ever habitat construction program for the lions at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary. This video shows the day Leo and his pride were released into their new home. These animals have a wonderful life ahead of them, living as close to what nature intended. Half of the lions are in their forever habitats, like the one in this video, and with your help, we can complete the $300,000 construction work for the lions in the next eight weeks. Please give whatever you can and help ADI continue to change the world for animals.
Please Remember, ADI continues to fund feeding, care and veterinary treatment for all of the lions rescued from Peru and Colombia. You can help with this day to day care here »
