Note: Princess had a bad respiratory infection upon arrival at Poplar Spring, but is doing better on antibiotics and is also being treated for internal and external parasites. She is staying in a quarantine barn until her conditions are no longer contagious to other animals, but she can see the other goats and is clearly excited to meet them. In the meantime, the sanctuary staff is bringing her fresh-picked grass to eat every day, and say that she loves it!

Note: Sebastian arrived at The Wildcat Sanctuary with an upper-respiratory infection, so he was in a quarantine area where the staff could closely monitor him until he was no longer contagious to the other animals. He is now living in The Wildcat Sanctuary’s Intern house & getting tons of love!

Note: Cantata had what a veterinarian described as “a horrific skin infection” when rescued from Tri-State, so she was started on antibiotics as soon as she arrived at her new home at Carolina Tiger Rescue. She is now also receiving regular allergy medication and her skin has improved drastically.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
