It has come to our attention that an old letter provided through our fundraising company has recirculated and included inaccurate information regarding the future and care of our lions. Our lions, and the rest of our animal family are safe, secure, and supported. Additionally, shortly after this letter went out, our operational permits were renewed for another 10 years and we continue to grow and develop our relationship with the county and community.
The letter’s verbiage was created under the fundraising company’s advice and unfortunately did not clearly portray the positions, opinions, or options the Lion Habitat Ranch experienced following recovery from COVID protocols. We trusted in the fundraising company to aid us in raising funds for our small non-profit but this did not result as planned. We have notified the fundraising company to cease use of this letter and our team will be more prudent to rigorously review any and all information in the future for clarity and accuracy.
Our lions, and the rest of our animal family continue to receive their full diets daily, veterinary care, heating/cooling in the summer and winter, as well as enrichment and care from our keepers. We are extremely thankful for the support we have received from our community. As a non-profit wildlife sanctuary striving to provide the best possible care for our animal family, we are always in need of visitors, donations, and support. Please know we are aware this letter may have created undue concern for our animals and be assured that our animals are safe and well. We all experienced significant strain to our lives and businesses during COVID and hope that you will understand our error. We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
