Picture Of The Day! By today’s environmental standards, a self-sustaining tiger population - based on 7,000 plus animals - would be considered a success story. However, when those 7,000 tigers are found in captivity - living outside of our public zoo system – it is considered a travesty. Why aren’t they in zoos? Or better yet, why aren’t they in the wild where they belong? The answer, as always, lies in their association with another inhabitant of earth… man. #thewildanimalsanctuary #pictureoftheday #CaptiveWildlifeCrisis

Look at this guy just #hangingout basking in the sun at the @wildanimalsanctuary read our latest blog post on our spring project!! #captivewildlifecrisis we ca help!!

This is Yukon, the wolf I adopted through The Wild Animal Sanctuary's animal adoption program. Before he found his home at TWAS, he lived in a mall in Iowa in a "zoo" of plexiglass walls and cement floors, never seeing sunlight or having grass under his paws. We had a moment this morning saying hi to each other. It was magical. ❤

Visiting our adopted lion son, Jupiter (top right) and 350+ other wild animals rescued and rehabilitated from the #captivewildlifecrisis by #wildanimalsanctuary #colorado #savetheanimals #animalrights

Very happy this morning to read that Lily, an Asiatic Black Bear rescued from a "mini zoo" last year, has come out of hibernation weighing nearly 200lbs less! The abuse and malnutrition these animals experience is varied and complicated. Not all malnutrition leads to starvation, as Lily is an example of an animal who was extremely overfed with very low quality food, and kept in a small concrete cage that didn't allow for any exercise. When she was brought to TWAS last fall she was morbidly obese, hundreds of pounds overweight. It warms my heart to read how quickly she is recovering and adapting to her new life at The Wild Animal Sanctuary.

My fundraiser for these animals is still active at the link in my bio. I am only $117 away from my goal and I would be thrilled if we achieved it! Please consider donating if you haven't already. ❤️ (In this photo: before (top) and after (bottom) of Lily being rescued by TWAS)•

Are you reading my posts and catch yourself thinking "I don't need to donate, somebody else will"? If everyone thought that, nothing would ever be donated and the less fortunate would never get help. Try something new today, donate a few bucks to #TheWildAnimalSanctuary and be proud because most people don't think to give without directly getting something in return. What you will get in return is pride and the knowledge of how much your spare change meant to these animals. It will take you less than 5 minutes, the link is in my bio! 🦁🐯🐻🦊
If you want to donate but also want to see what it's all about, I would love to take you to the sanctuary, my treat. No jokes. DM me if you'd like to go there for a weekend adventure and the chance to see these guys in person.

If you're curious why I keep asking for donations to the sanctuary, here's why:
These animals were born into situations they did not ask for. They didn't know why they were being taken from their mothers or why their babies were taken from them. They didn't know why they weren't being fed, why they couldn't move around, why they were being beaten, why they were sick. By nature they wanted to be free in the wild feeling the grass and sun and water and raising their young, but instead they were trapped by steel and had only felt cold concrete under their feet.
But then they are rescued by The Wild Animal Sanctuary. They are given food without being forced to inhumanly earn it. They are not punished if they choose to stay hidden during the day. They are allowed to eat when they're hungry and at times that they choose, not at times when people expect to see it as a show. They are given medical attention that they desperately need, and they begin to feel so much better. When they start to feel healthy they're able to let their personalities shine, instead of using all their energy to just barely survive. For the first time in their lives they have the freedom to play. They get to have a family, companions, and friends.
When you donate, you're helping to buy that food that fills their bellies, the medicine that heals their illnesses and pain, the habitats they get to run wild in, and the resources the staff needs to go out and rescue more animals in need.
You can help be a part of the solution not only by donating but also by educating. Help me try to build a humane future for our Earth's animals. And to those who've donated already, you've made me happier than I could ever express. Thank you ❤️ You can still donate via the link in my bio.

To me, fighting for animal welfare is one of the most meaningful and important causes a person can be a part of. Animals like the ones being rescued by @wildanimalsanctuary do not have a voice against the cruelty they're enduring. It's up to people like us to fight for them. Donate, educate, and tell their stories so we can work towards a less violent, more understanding and equal world.
I am only $387 away from my fundraising goal, and I think with the help of some instagram love, we can hit that easy. $5 or $10 is all I ask, and it will make a HUGE difference! Whether you know me well, used to know me, or don't even know who I am, you can be a part of this. This isn't for me, this is for the animals and I'm simply trying to spread the word for them 🦁

What happens to people who donate? GREAT THINGS!! Pay it forward and those good vibes will come back to you :) the animals will get the carefree and loving lives they deserve, and you'll feel good having helped them live their happy ending. I've given $5, and I want you to match that! If 199 more people give $5, we'll raise $1,000. Tag and share with your friends!
Use the link in my bio to donate! I thank you on behalf of the animals ❤️

Just a tiny few of the over 450 rescued animals that call The Wild Animal Sanctuary home. First picture is Frida II, second is the newest lioness rescued from Argentina, and third is black/silver phase fox Kit having a morning chat with another fox he lives with (either Granite or Marble, as they are identical).

#TinyTiger was a little confused when it saw a zebra in Texas, so it did a little research. It learned that there are more tigers in Texas than there are in the whole of Asia! Tiny Tiger was stunned! What do you think should be done to help end the Captive Wildlife Crisis?
