Lions Tigers & Bears via Crowdrise
December 04, 2013
Lions, Tigers & Bears is home to 50 animals, 17 species total, including 3 lions, 2 tigers and 6 black bears. We are committed to providing a forever home where these animals can live out the rest of their lives with peace and dignity in a safe and caring environment.
We have been raising funds to help build a second bear habitat to accommodate Meatball the bear. Meatball 210 came to us from the La Canada neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was deemed a habituated bear after roaming the neighborhood, taking dips in neighbor's pools, and valiantly ripping the door off of a garage refrigerator to munch on frozen meatballs, hence the name.
We are 2/3 of the way through with funding, with $80,000 left to go, before we can begin constructing this state of the art bear habitat. An anonymous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar every penny raised, up to $40,000 to get this habitat built once and for all!
This habitat is necessary to provide Meatball 210 with a place to call his own, as well as to make room to rescue more bears in need of a safe haven. With our latest bear-dition Maddie, who arrived in July of this year from a private owner in Ohio, we are especially eager to get this habitat constructed once and for all.
This is where you all come in. Every dollar you give is matched, so essentially your donation is automatically DOUBLED. What better time than now to give? Please donate today. Let's get this funding finished and get to building!
Meatball 210 and Maddie thank you from the beary-bottom of their hearts!
