Cub Update
All eight cubs are healthy and continue to thrive. They are each eating 7-9 pounds per day of a specially formulated diet designed for big cats in captivity. They also require 23-28 pills (depending on weight) of Vitamin A supplementation per day in addition to their special diet. This is to prevent a rare condition of Vitamin A deficiency in young, captive lions that can be fatal. Luckily, with our early intervention we haven't seen any symptoms of a problem. Additionally, all of the female cubs have now been spayed and recovered from their procedures without difficulty. The most recent excitement for the cubs was their first snow day. In case you missed it, you can enjoy the photos here.   
Arnold's New House
Arnold the pig has continued to settle in to life at the sanctuary since he arrived in July. He's such a happy, friendly little guy! When you approach his habitat he oinks and runs over to greet you! We recently got him a new home to keep nice and cozy, and he's really enjoying it!

Cat of the Month - Etana
Etana was rescued with four other lions after being abandoned by their owner in 2013. Little is known about their history or origin, because no records of any kind were passed on to us. Etana is keeping busy with her full-time job of being a mother and teaching her cubs everything they need to know about being a lion!  You can contribute to Etana's care by adopting her  online  or over the phone. As a thank you, we will send you a t-shirt, photo, window decal, and certificate of adoption.
