UNITED STATES ZOOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION RE-HOMES 4 TIGERS

After a long battle with the United States Department of Agriculture and the City of Riverview Wisconsin, the Lakewood Zoo had to call it quits and close their doors. What did this mean to the animals of Lakewood? They all had to be moved and find somewhere else to live.

Team USZA rallied together to raise the nearly $2,000.00 it took to transport these four tigers from Wisconsin back to the Oklahoma refuge for exotic animals. The Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma - the world's largest accredited facility for big cats - stepped up with the vehicles and equipment to make the trip and bring the cats to safety. Read complete story here.

A REFUGE RECENTLY ASKED US TO TAKE IN 5 CHIMPANZEES

Rescue Chimps

Rescue Chimps

The owner of the facility lost his USDA license after investigations showed false videos and accusations of substandard living conditions. As you know, our park is at capacity as far as cages, so in order to REHOME the chimps to the park, we would need to build an entirely new chimp compound on the property. Estimates to build the facility range from $200,000 to $250,000.

< align="justify"p>As you can see, these precious animals are not in desperate need of love and care but would love to come to our park. But the owner will not allow the chimps to go anywhere other than GW.

THE BEAN POT RESCUE IN SULPHUR OKLAHOMA ASKED US TO REMOVE A BLACK BEAR

The bear has been caged for 8 years. Upon our arrival we found behind the restaurant a cage that was so deep in trash and debris that the entire cage had sunken into the ground over 2 feet.

The park staff had called the Fire Department to come with the jaws of life and cut the cage open so the bear could be removed. Once the bear was removed an exam discovered that one front leg was missing from the knee down and the teeth were all broken off and had nerves exposed. Please help us stop the abuse of exotic animals and continue the care of rescued ones by donating today.

THE GW ANIMAL PARK RECEIVED 11 TIGERS AND LIONS FROM A SANCTUARY IN TEXAS

They could no longer afford to keep the animals cared for. One tiger came in with its eye so badly damaged from the abuse it received at the sanctuary that our vet staff had to remove itts left eye and most of the eye (orbital bone) that was crushed.

Rescue Tigers

There is no government agency that accredits sanctuaries and inspects them (so if you see anyone advertise they are accredited) means nothing other than they have joined a private group and are in the buddy buddy system, such as Big Cat Rescue that has killed over 124 big cats since 1999 having 15 died this year alone
