Giving Lions Dignity

Personal message

My life is dedicated to the care of lions.

I have taken on the task of giving 15 lions a good life. Each one came from a life in captivity where they were exploited for human gain. My mission was to give them the best life they could possibly have as captive lions by increasing the size of their environment. Building the enclosures on a hillside to give the lions the illusion of far more space because they now have views and vistas looking out over the hills and valleys of the Northern Drakensberg.

Making every effort to give them the best in nutrition and veterniary care, the lions at Love Lions Alive Sanctuary are relieved of the constant pain experienced by lions who are not properly fed.

Now we have 7 more lions coming to LLA, they have been rescued from small cages and boxes in the Ukraine. I am raising money to build these lions beautiful homes.

Our aim is for the lions we take into LLA to live as naturally as is possible for lions in captivity. They are not tourist attractions and not available to be touched, walked with or used for selfies. Their privacy and dignity are vitally improtant to us. We give the lions sanctuary and a place of reprieve. All our lionesses are sterilized to prevent bringing any more lions into lives of captivity.

Love Lions Alive Sanctuary NPC Logo

Love Lions Alive Sanctuary is a non-profit which exists for the soul purpose of offering a place of refuge to lions in need. We give an improved lifestyle to previously abused lions who have come to live out the rest of their natural lives in safety, dignity and peace in the most beautiful surroundings we can offer them.

We take in lions who have been born into captivity for human entertainment, tourist opportunities or bred for the bullet. Most of them come from way-too-small cages, awful conditions and have been mulnurished resulting in reduced mobility and lives lived in constant pain.

We are raising money for the care for the lions on a daily basis. Our normal running costs plus the building of new enclosures for the rescued lions coming from the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation in the Ukraine.
