BENEFITING: Animal Defenders International US
Animal Defenders International (ADI) has been working around the clock to seize and secure twenty-five abused circus lions from Bolivian circuses. Many of them were found in dreadful condition, often malnourished and ill, having been kept in tight cages their entire lives. None of these lions have ever felt grass on their feet.
ADI has been working to change this. By air-lifting the lions out of Bolivia in "Operation: Lion Ark", they are transporting them to an animal sanctuary in Denver, Colorado, where the lions will be supported by ADI for the rest of their natural lives. However, this process takes a substantial amount of time and money.
Many celebrities have pledged their support for ADI, including Jorja Fox. The organization is actively seeking donations of any and all amounts to support the lions. In light of Jorja's dog of fourteen years, Ali, recently passing away, her fans are stepping up to donate to a cause she actively supports in loving memory of her long-time canine companion.
