“RAWR” is Big Cat for Thank You

After a life of abusive circus performances and 18 months of waiting at a temporary shelter, 12 tigers and 5 lions are finally home and free thanks to your support.

An arduous trip, the lions and tigers endured more than 34 hours of flying, making stops in Mexico, Belgium, and Qatar before reaching South Africa.

On Tuesday, Jan. 21, the 17 animals arrived in Johannesburg, ready for the last leg of their journey — a truck ride to the sanctuary.

Cubs and playmates rushed to meet each other in the wide, open space, quickly adjusting to their new digs.

Thanks to you, the Operation Liberty Flight was largely funded by GreaterGood.org and we couldn’t be happier to see these big kittens finally be free.
