Selena is one of CARE’s most loving creatures. She was brought to CARE in 2000 at six months of age. She was to be temporarily boarded here but was never picked up by her very famous owner. She saved the life of Sampson, CARE’s large male African Lion. When Selena was 10 months old, the 4 month old Sampson arrived. He was nearly dead upon arrival. After several weeks of life-saving care, Sampson’s physical condition improved, although his emotional condition deteriorated. A decision was made to place Selena and Sampson together in the same enclosure. Selena took to Sampson like a mother to a cub. She nurtured him back to health. The unlikely couple, lion and tiger, lived together for many years. But, they could not be together forever. Sampson now lives with another African Lion, and Selena lives alone right next door. If you have the time to give Selena the love she desperately needs, please see the volunteer or adoption page.
