Freedom at last. 
In our biggest rescue mission ever – Operation Spirit of Freedom – Animal Defenders International (ADI) has enforced Peru’s ban on wild animals in circuses, raiding circuses all over the country until there were no more wild animals!  We have also begun to rescue circus animals in Colombia. Over 100 animals have been saved, with native wildlife relocated to jungle habitats in the Amazon and 33 lions to be airlifted to Africa. 

THAT IS PART ONE.  WE NEED YOU TO HELP US CARE FOR THESE ANIMALS THAT HAVE SUFFERED SO MUCH AND GIVE THEM A WONDERFUL FUTURE.

With your help we can give them the future they deserve

We exposed the suffering and campaigned for change, won the wild animal circus ban in Peru, and then we were there to save the animals. Working with the authorities, ADI tracked down and has removed all of the wild animals in Peru’s circuses. We also have nine lions in Colombia – the first to be removed from circuses following the ban on wild animal acts there.

But as difficult and dangerous as part one of ADI’s Operation Spirit of Freedom has been seizing these animals – it is still just the start.  We have already relocated over 40 monkeys and other native wildlife to jungle habitats in the Amazon where we will continue to fund their care - next we will take our 33 rescued lions and tiger to their forever homes. Please help us:

  • Feed and care for the animals as they await their new life
  • Provide veterinary care for these animals that have endured so much
  • Construct 34 big cat travel crates 
  • Relocate the animals to their forever homes – we will be flying 33 lions to a new life in South Africa – the biggest ever airlift of its kind. Other animals will be transported to different locations.

ADI’s Operation Spirit of Freedom is the biggest ever rescue of circus animals – you can be part of it, give what you can.

$1,500 will pay for a travel crate, on which you can have your name or dedication included, to bring a big cat to Africa

$500 will go towards the cost of a travel crate for a big cat, with your name or dedication included with two other co-sponsors

$200 will help fund the care of our rescued monkeys in the Amazon rainforest

$100 will assist us in taking our rescued animals to their new home

$50 will go towards any veterinary care they need – some have already benefited from specialist dental work

$20 will contribute towards the lions and monkeys food and enrichment – we provide lots of toys and things to play with to keep them occupied.  The lions love to play with footballs, but they don’t last very long!

Every dollar will help care for and relocate these animals.  They have suffered terribly, now you can transform their lives with ADI.

Contact us if you can sponsor one of the really huge costs such as the one of the relocation flights.
