THE STORY:

Immediate help is needed to protect the big cats from the extreme heat!

CARE suffered catastrophic loss due to the record breaking heat and drought of 2011. The loss of trees, vegetation, water for wells and life made the summer of 2011 the most brutal time CARE has experienced.

Day after day we watched the cats try to stay cool in the 100+ degree temperatures. It was heartbreaking. The metal swimming pools were more like hot tubs. Intern and volunteer energies were placed fully on spraying the cats with cool water which was a constant drain on our limited water source and our manpower.

CAREgivers live in fear that future summers could also prove to be a repeat of the 2011 summer. In order to survive more summers we must focus on shade and in-ground swimming pools.

The total cost of the project will exceed $25,000. We began the project in 2012 and continue to work on it as funds allow.

At the completion of the project every cat will have more shade and an in-ground swimming pool or mist system for those who do not like to submerse in water such as lions, cougars and leopards.
