Four Paws

Big cats forced to live in captivity need your help

Can you help FOUR PAWS rescue and protect animals like Nikola and Vasylyna?

Give animals like Nikola and Vasylyna a second chance in life

FOUR PAWS Sanctuaries offer a safe haven for rescued animals, providing them with a life-long home in near-natural habitats. Our sanctuaries, give animals a second chance to live the life that was meant for them.

After being rescued from their past ordeals, animals like Nikola and Vasylyna go through a mental and physical transition and transformation to ensure they adapt to their new habitat. 

The sanctuaries teams are skilled in ensuring that rescued animals like Nikola and Vasylyna transition safely when they arrive at their new homes, paying attention to their physical and behaviour needs to ensure they adapt smoothly to their new habitat.

  Nikola and Vasylyna are the lucky ones, it is estimated that there are around 10,000 lions and over 600 tigers living in captivity in South Africa alone.

Your gift could help FOURPAWS rescue and protect big cats like Nikola and Vasylyna. Can you help?

Thanks to supporters like you, despite their past trauma, Nikola and Vasylyna have formed a strong bond and have become inseparable during their rehabilitation time at FELIDA Big Cat Sanctuary.

Now they have been released at LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary together, they finally get to start their new lives under the South-African sun; free of the stress of war, hunger and fear as they deserve.
