Animals have suffered for decades in traveling circuses in Guatemala. After the extent of this suffering was exposed, thankfully the country banned the use of animals in circuses. However, an unintended consequence of this ban is that many of the animals—including these five lions—are languishing in small, rusting circus cages, waiting to be rescued. These animals need food, veterinary care, a new home to live out their lives, and safe transportation to that new home. Lioness Sasha who is waiting to be flown to her new home will also need veterinarian care. She suffered a leg injury in the circus and is unable to put weight on one of her paws. With your help, The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood.org are teaming up with Animal Defenders International (ADI) to help Sasha and the others find freedom.
This is key: once these animals are rescued from their cages, no animal will suffer again in this way in the country. These animals have endured so much, but they could still have years of freedom ahead of them. Even better, this historic mission could encourage more countries to act to end the suffering of captive wildlife.
These captive former circus lions urgently need you to rescue them from terrible conditions and relocate them to a new life. These big, beautiful creatures will need safe, suitable holding units once removed from their cruel cages, and they will need food and care. Then, your support will airlift the lions to ADI's wildlife sanctuary in Africa; these lions will go from cramped, bare, and dirty circus cages to roaming the African savanna in huge, safe enclosures where they will receive the care they need, for life.
You can help! Even as little as $6 helps get these freed yet still suffering lions to a new home in Africa, where they should have been all along.
