Max, Kimba, and Simba are home!

FOREVER HOME FOR EX-CIRCUS TIGERS MAX, KIMBA AND SIMBA. When ADI rescued tigers Max, Kimba and Simba from a Guatemala circus, the race was on to find their forever home. Big Cat Rescue of Florida stepped up, pledging to sponsor the rescue of these three beautiful boys, covering the costs of their food and care at the ADI Temporary Rescue Center and their flight out of Guatemala. WATCH THE STORY OF THEIR JOURNEY to their new home. Thank you Big Cat Rescue!

Now, we need YOUR help to get the remaining 17 lions and tigers out of Guatemala to the new ADI Wildlife Sanctuary, South Africa!

Tigers Itza, Sombra, Lupe, Bimbi, the cubs, Kumal, Sasha, Luna, Jade, Sun and Moon, and lions Tomas, Sasha, Kimba, Tanya and Tarzan are waiting for their turn to go home – and we need to move them before the end of the year.

Animal Rescues

Having secured and helped enforce an animal circus ban in Bolivia, ADI returned to Latin America to assist the authorities in Peru and Colombia. Over 100 animals were rescued during Operation Spirit of Freedom. In 2018 ADI launched Operation Liberty in Guatemala, where it has so far saved 6 lions and 15 tigers. Now just one circus with animals remains in the country.
