Leo arrived 15 Jul 2002, at age 18. He was an (Pantheras Leo) African Lion that came to us from Texas.
He died of natural causes on 10 Mar 2006 with Tim by his side. Leo and two lionesses, Snaggle Puss and Snaggle Tooth all lived in a garage for 17 years. Yes, 17 years!

Snaggle Tooth and two other African lions (Pantheras Leo), Snaggle Pus and Leo came to us from Texas on in July of 2002. They all lived in a garage for 17 years. Yes, 17 years!
Sadly we had to euthanize Snaggle Tooth in June of 2003. Years of neglect and poor nutrition weakened her spine and she lost the use of her rear legs. Tim and I spent a few moments to say our good byes to her. I was scratching her head and figured she was probably sick of my attention. I moved away to let her rest. She then crawled over to me and rubbed her head against me for more. That was my undoing. Lions are very social creatures.

Yogie was kept in a pen with lots of other cats. The park had too many so we took her in at 18 months old. BooBoo needed a companion so we brought her to the sanctuary.
Here’s Yogie doing some yardwork raking the grass in her area of the sanctuary.
