It’s amazing to think that ten years ago FOUR PAWS didn’t have its own big cat sanctuary. Since then, we’ve taken over a lion breeding facility in South Africa and transformed it into LIONSROCK, our 56 hectare, state-of-the-art big cat sanctuary, now home to over 100 rescued big cats.

We’ve also been campaigning tirelessly to end the cruel practice of canned lion hunting and recently sent a global petition signed by over 500,000 people to the South African government, calling for a complete ban.

So thank you so much for all your support over the years! There’s still a lot more to do, and we’re determined to make the next ten years really count for lions and other big cats!

Check out our ten-year anniversary campaign videos. You might think dressing up like lion is a bit silly, but it’s all in the name of a very serious cause - so please share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and help us to share our message that canned lion hunting needs to be canned altogether!
