Fundraising Success!

Big cats in captivity need a lot of specialized care, including exceptional enclosures that will provide them with the space, enrichment, and protection that they need to be happy and healthy. Lion cubs Araali and Zuberi are now 16 months old and tiger cubs Boomer and Slade are 11 months old and they all need permanent enclosures to fit their individual needs!

In September, CARE launched its most ambitious fundraiser ever aimed at raising $80,000 to build new housing. The fundraiser was also the first time that the organization used a crowd-funding platform through Indiegogo. The goal was to raise the amount needed in one month so that preparations could being as soon as possible to break ground on the new structures.

This project is not just a nice to have for the cubs, it is a have to have. With the lions' health issues with Wobbler's Syndrome and new USDA requirements that require updated building specs, we need these special enclosures built as soon as possible.

At the close of the campaign, CARE not only reached the lofty goal, but surpassed it! The official total amount raised through Indiegogo ended up being a staggering $86,429. That also does not include a few thousand more that came in outside of the Indiegogo platform. The CARE staff has been overwhelmed by the support this campaign recieved. To know that the animals at CARE are loved by so many, and that all 1,280 people that donated are investing in their futures, is amazing.

The following people are just a portion of those that contributed to this project, but there are many more that donated, spread the word, and sent their support. We thank EVERYONE from the bottom of our hearts for making such a difference in Boomer, Slade, Araali, and Zuberi's lives! We will be posting updated and pictures as we break ground in November!!

Thank you to the following contributers, and many more who are unnamed!
