Animal Rescue

A fellow animal artist has recently been promoting a series of photographs from Noah's Lost Ark, a wild animal rescue facility. They have rescued many animals from certain death, and provided homes for others who would have lost theirs. They have taken in old circus tigers, big cats from breeding facilities that closed down, and others from owners who just couldn't handle them any longer. Read some of their heartwrenching tales of rescues, animals who, fully grown, weighed only 1/3 of their species' normal weight because of malnourishment, or who were beaten to blindness or kept in cages so small they have permanent skeletal damage.

The owners are incredible people to take in all these animals, but they only get funding from donations and the tours they give. Take a moment to look at their website and see if you can help in some way.
